After nearly a decade of infertility, a stretch of heartbreak during which Erin and her husband, Jason, had heard
no so often as they tried to conceive children, this new hope staggered them.
It took six months after the wedding for the Toronto couple to digest Shelagh McKee's offer [to be a surrogate] as a viable option. By then, the owners of a small Christmas decor business had spent about $100,000 over a decade on fertility treatments and procedures, a substantial sum for the pair, who are not wealthy and diligently saved their money.
Erin summoned the nerve to email McKee, a mother of three, to ask if she was still serious about surrogacy.
I didn’t want to phone her and put her on the spot, Erin says. McKee's typed reply came in block letters: ABSOLUTELY.
McKee is due in early August. The baby is the biological child of Erin and Jason (they asked their surname not be used to protect their privacy). The baby is being carried in the womb of a 43-year-old who says her friends are good people who deserve happiness.
