Taking emotional care of your surrogate

We created a great relationship with our surrogate before and after the birth. There's a lot of trust, and that's important. You have to trust that the person who's carrying your child will do everything for that child to be born healthy. We spent a lot of time with Angela, and we had a lot of vacations together and fun times. And at the last stretch, she came and lived with us. So we were going through it with her. And that was a tremendous bond. Afterward though, we knew we had to separate. And I knew that she was very sad because she was not only separating from the children she just gave birth to, but from us as well. But after a little bit of time, we got together with her, and more times. There's become a very natural relationship with Angela.
