Surrogate Mom Delivers Two Babies, One Her Own.
Measures Of Success

From the time that humans are young, we’re told that we have to do certain things in life to be considered a “successful” member of society. We’re supposed to graduate from high school, go to college, start your career, get married, and then finally, have a baby. For many people, it doesn’t always work out like that.

Any time a person breaks that cycle of normalcy or goes outside of the “box” to live their own life, they’re deemed as abnormal or unsuccessful or a misfit. However, it’s not necessarily easy for every person to follow the guidelines that society has put into play. And for those that aren’t able to follow the dotted line, life can become quite unbearable.

Having a baby can be a blessing for most couples. But some people have a tough time conceiving a child. When that happens, surrogacy becomes an option. Being a surrogate appeared to be a good idea for one woman. She had a husband, but they were strapped for cash. And the surrogacy was offering them the money they needed badly. But this surrogacy took a wrong turn rather quickly for reasons that no one could have ever imagined.
A Big Decision
Becoming a surrogate mother for a couple that can't have their own child is a major decision for a woman. The woman makes the decision to take on the enormous responsibility of growing another person’s child in their own body, which comes with its own set of issues.
Not only is your body physically going through the changes that come with pregnancy, but your emotions are being affected, as well. You feel stressed out, sick, emotional, anxious, and tired all at one time. And the crazy part is that you’re not doing it for yourself, you’re doing it all for another family.
