“I am overwhelmed with love and I am so grateful! » said the mother. In this moment of joy, I want to watch endlessly.
You may have seen a lot of postpartum photos online.
But this series of photographs shows something you’ve probably never seen before: a mother’s joy at seeing her little one, born and conceived by a surrogate mother.
Kim Overton was diagnosed with fibromyoma, but underwent surgery, thanks to which in 2012 she was able to give birth to a child.
However, when she decided to have a second child, doctors told her that it was almost impossible for her to get pregnant at that stage.
Kim began considering surrogacy. After discussing it with her family, she learned that her cousin’s daughter, Sydney, would like to do the job.
Kim and her husband were incredibly touched.
“Sidney seemed like an angel to us,” says Kim. “Without her, we would not have been able to have a child. What she did was the act of a selfless and loving person.
Cindy, in turn, wanted to become a surrogate mother, watching Kim suffer, trying to get pregnant. “I realized how lucky I was because so many women can’t have their own children or have difficulty with it,” Sidney says.
