Curiously, the album I had planned to record my second surrogacy never happened, despite how much I treasured the one I’d made after my first surrogacy.
Was it lack of time that prevented me from tackling it? Possibly, as I was finishing my own kids’ first-year photo albums around that same time and maybe I was feeling a little burned out. But I don’t think that was really it.
The truth is that I really had no reason to make an elaborate memory album for myself because I knew that our first year together – the time we spent as a team, bringing the twin boys into the world – was not a finite journey as it had been in my first surrogacy. Instead, it was just the beginning of a shared lifetime together.
