Cristina’s thoughts: being a mother thanks to embryo adoption
Lucas was born on May 13th. He’s WONDERFUL… I can’t say he’s the cutest, as all babies are this weird combination between ugly and cute. What I do know is about the beautiful way in which he moves and about how much I love him.
He always sleeps hidden under my breast. Some people have asked if I would be able to breast-feed him, as if it weren’t a natural process only because it wasn’t my egg cell! Such ignorance… He eats from my breast compulsively and then always hides beneath it to go to sleep…
Everything I felt throughout the pregnancy was curious: I have always felt my decision of “adopting” was great. It was both of us who needed an adoption, he adopted me and I adopted him. People’s reaction to the story is good. I don’t hide it, as I believe I can help many other people by telling my story naturally.
I know many people still are reluctant to the thought they might not use their own sperm or egg cells, but most of them eventually realize the silliness of it all. I absolutely respect and understand those who think this way , but it would be nice if by the end of the road they know about the existence of this option, which is as generous as adopting grown up children.
