In other surrogacy news. I attended a taping of the Steve Harvey show at NBC Towers in Chicago this past week with a few surro friends. The opportunity came up when EMS, the agency that I do some consulting for, offered tickets to anyone in the area that wanted to attend. The show was doing a segment on surrogacy and the guests were a Surrogacy Together couple, Kathryn and Jordan and their surrogate Kasey.
As with most media coverage of surrogacy, one has to be very careful that the story isn't portrayed negatively. Yes, there are horror stories - on both sides - but overall surrogacy is an amazing experience full of emotional rewards, friendship and love. Kathryn, Jordan and Kasey did a wonderful job describing their experience and the blessing that it was to both parties. The "experts" that were brought in, a psychologist and lawyer, left something to be desired however. They made a couple of comments that left me frustrated but, hopefully since our lil group of surros was seated directly behind them, our reactions complete with eye rolls and looks of consternation, will leave them no choice but to edit that part of the interview out. LOL Overall it was a great experience though and I'm very happy I got to be a part of it.
