Congratulations, Challenge Winners 🏆 🏆
Submitted to What's On Your Mind?
We're pleased to announce the winners of the Building Your Voice for Social Change Challenge. Congratulations to @Jess and @BriannaBuck, who shared their stories of empowerment through surrogacy that will help us fight for legal and fair surrogacy laws across the country.
"Becoming a surrogate or gestational carrier has been one of the most rewarding and empowering journeys I have embarked on and I haven’t even reached the “finish line.” It is something that I always thought maybe I could do and as I came to know the stories of so many who have struggled it became so clear to me that THIS was a way I could give back."
"Being a surrogate didn’t just empower me, it made me feel like a superhero. Seeing pictures of this family and their baby, seeing how this one child has brought joy and happiness to so many people, and then knowing I was the one to help create this, it makes me feel pure happiness and pride. I have always been a giver and a helper, and this was the ultimate fulfillment."
