I cannot detach from the child I bore

Submitted on: February 5, 2019

I agreed to be a surrogate for a friend who was unable to conceive, using her husband’s sperm. I stayed attached after birth and breast fed my baby. Keep in mind that this baby is mine, my egg, not hers. I was supposed to surrender the baby after birth to her for adoption by her. She can be the aunt, but I am the mother. I’m sorry in a way that it didn’t work out, but it didn’t. I kept the baby and I am the responsible parent and I get child support. They have visitation which is generous, I don’t have any ill feelings, I want them involved, after all he is the father.
