This had nothing to do with design, just something I have been thinking about more often lately.
My husband and I bought our first house in September of last year. We were having a really hard time finding a home in our price range with what we needed. So, of course, I was getting a little bummed out.
One night my husband and I were talking about finding a home. I was in the “we’re NEVER gonna buy a home” mode, and, well, my husband was just along for the ride.
At one point in the conversation he said to me “well, would you rather have a hard time finding a house or having kids? I mean, at least we aren’t sitting in a huge house with no one else in it but us.”
Of course, I then thought of us in a big beautiful house, just us, no kids. I almost cried out loud. Seriously. The thought of me not being able to have kids, devastating.
Next thought, I need to be a surrogate mother.
I really think I do, not right now, life’s a little stressful, but I do. I want to be able to help a couple who cannot carry a child, for whatever reason. I couldn’t be an egg donor, cause then that’s “my blood” so to speak, and I couldn’t give it up then.
But, there are people out there who just need to borrow a womb, so to speak. You know, their own baby biologically, I would just carry it for them. I am actually kinda excited just thinking about it.
What do you think of surrogacy? Could you lend out your womb to give someone else a child that’s really their own?
