The Beautiful Surrogate Birth of Fynn

The Beautiful Surrogate Birth of Fynn

In Birth

Within a few weeks of each I crossed two items off my documentary photo bucket list. The first was an outdoor birth that you can see here and the second was this beautiful and emotional surrogate birth. I don’t even know where to start with this birth story. It was beautiful, so full of love and bursting at the seems with gratitude. I am truly having a hard time finding the words to describe this emotionally beautiful day.

Imagine meeting the child you have been dreaming of for over 6 years.

Waiting patiently by the operating room doors for the nurse to wheel him to you.

Meeting him for the first time in a hospital hallway thousands of miles from your home.

This is the Birth Story of Fynn.

To: Bart & Meine. What an absolute joy it was to get to know you both. To see the love you have for each other and to see the compassion, gratitude and unconditional love you have for Dale, your surrogate. It was breathtaking. Fynn you will be loved beyond measure.

I asked them to write a few words about their experience meeting their son in the hallway of an Edmonton Hospital and this is what they had to say.

“Love is what made him, our son. We had to wait almost 6 years to have our wish granted. The moment we first saw him was phenomenal, intense and fantastic. Falling in love, being grateful so proud of our surrogate. Love, that’s what made him.” Bart & Meine proud parents to Fynn.

Much much love to you Bart, Meine & Dale for sharing this incredible journey with me.
