I dropped the mic and you missed it. I made a major announcement last week – sneakily at the end of a LIVE video – and it was so huge that it’s worth repeating.
I’m done. We’re done. We will be adding another little girl to our family – and she is perfect. We did a 4D scan with Dr Bhorat in Umhlanga to make 100% sure and it was an amazing experience for me. I got to see our little girl.
The question I always get asked… IS IT YOURS? It is mine. Our own genetic material. Our own child. Mine. I’m just using a surrogate to do the part I can’t.
I’m emphasizing that she is mine to remind everyone just how big a deal it is. She is an accomplishment, a victory, the impossible made possible. She is the end of my heartbreakingly difficult road at a fertility clinic. Whatever she grows up to be, it will be amazing.
So that is it, a simple announcement to say that I didn’t give up because I knew nothing is impossible.
I think the scars of this journey will probably stay with me forever. It broke me in so many places and there were times when I could barely hold the pieces together. All I know is that my story is far from over and not told in full, but one day I’ll get there.
