Sharing this because it’s beautiful 💕 #Rep#Repost @sheridonbyrnebirthdoula with @get_repost ・・・ I wish there were more openly-shared stories of surrogacy. Thank you to @bre@breedownes_doula_photographer for sharing #Repost @breedownes_doula_photographer ・・・ I am especially honoured to have been invited into this birth space. Surrogacy is something that I didn't know a lot about until recently, and it has burst my heart wide open. Here are some words from a Woman who has given these two beautiful men the ultimate gift. 💗 "Altruistic surrogacy is complex, but it’s very different from what you see in the news. If it’s a headline, then it’s unlikely to reflect reality. Surrogates and intended parents form real, strong, beautiful relationships with the mutual intention of creating a baby for the intended parents. Surrogates do it precisely because we want to help create and grow someone’s family. So the idea that we are ‘giving away’ a baby is just not true – the baby is conceived and carried with the intention of them belonging to someone else. When Darcey was born, I wanted nothing more than to see Mike & Nate with their daughter. The reward for being a surrogate is seeing them become a family. There is no sense of loss or grief for giving away or losing her. I love her deeply, but I never wanted to be her mother. How am I doing, emotionally? I cried yesterday whenever someone wished me a Happy Birthday. And whenever someone says “You’re amazing!” But most especially when I see a photo like this, of Mike and Nate’s emotion at seeing their daughter. I am not grieving; I am hormonal and overjoyed and satisfied and completely loved-up. This is the ‘Surrogate High’ and it is amazing." Welcome to the world, Miss Darcey. Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away! ✨ #surrogate #surrogacy #melbournematernity #melbournebirthphotographer #melbournebirthphotography #birthphotography #dads #dadsanddaughters #love #babygirl #surrogatefamily #surrogacyaustralia

One of the most challenging aspects of my life, by far, is balancing the honor and responsibility for which I have been blessed. I have 4 daughters. Four beautiful, strong, healthy, smart, active, passionate, funny, goofy, witty, loving, adventurous, hard-working, tough, and headstrong daughters. They challenge me in ways that I never thought about before, or only in some very remote capacity. They focus my life's work. They calm my desire for storm, and they stoke the fire within this Father's watchful heart. Thank you, #palmergirls . You make life amazing! ° ° ° ° #fiascofamily #daughters #father #dad #dadsanddaughters #ihaveashotgun #parenting #sisters #familylife #faith #hope #love #watchful #shepherd #responsibility #honor

My oldest is a big-time athlete and she loves watching the Winter Olympics. Not because she particularly enjoys the actual events, but because she loves watching women compete. My job is to let her and her sister know that girls can do anything and be anything - and hearing that from a dad is powerful. #daddydoinwork #TeamDDW #feminist #dadsanddaughters #winterolympics #GirlPower

Scheduled a meeting on my second conversation ever while prospecting at the new job today - VP of Sales and I go 1 on 1 next Wednesday ✊🏽 Currently dying from a ManCold so Jenny is shouldering everything right now 😔 We’re eating Pho, so that should make me feel better 🤗 Because of the variety of symptoms and ailments that a ManCold produces, my confusion led to me leaving my wallet at the Pho place I picked up dinner at - realizing the moment I walked inside the house 🙄 Audrey was not impressed with this turn of events 😄 But hey.. We make some beautiful children ❤️😍❤️ #Dadlife #mancold #sales #parenting #pho #death #audreymae #love #dadsanddaughters #edmonds #seattle

Self feeding is awesome!! Cafe time used to be impossible. Drop toy, daddy picks it up, repeat. Change toy, repeat. Sigh... Now I time it with lots of finger food and she’ll just happily eat away while I slowly drink my #coffee. 😀👌#smallwins

2018 Hunks and Hotties coyote calling contest was a success for my daughter and I this year. Peyton and I ended up taking first place with 4 coyotes. 85 teams entered and only 14 coyote were taken in the contest. Huge shout out to Garrett @brushwolfhunter and @ginababe84 for putting on a great event. If you have haven't entered this contest before it is one you should for sure put on your calendars for next year. I'd also like to thank all the sponsors that contributed to the contest without your donations these kind of events are not possible. It was great meeting so many of you and best of luck next year. #coy#coyotefreaks #diehungry #rem#remington700 #remington #coyote #coyotehunting #dadsanddaughters #hornady #vortexoptics #leupold #kuiunation #kuiuofficial #beartoothproducts #slydog #venom #luckyducky #girlsthathunt #highdesertarms#highdesertarms

He thinks of us constantly whenever he’s away, He checks the calendar again but he’s already marked off today. Another email, another phone call, another message sent, Every passing second is another second well spent. He longs to return to us for a cuddle and a kiss, But Dad is just happy that he has so much to miss. #away #today #sent #spent #kiss #miss

The words of this song are beautiful and give me hope. Truly don’t know how I’d make it if I didn’t have my faith in God to help me through it. I’m still standing because of Him. I trust there is a purpose for my pain and that somehow my brokenness can be used to help others who are broken and wondering if they will ever make it through the swamp. Without a doubt the hardest 16 months of my life but thank God I’m farther upstream from where I was a year ago❣️🙏❤️
