I am a survivor of a uterine rupture that killed my son, Christopher. I had always dreamed of having a baby of my own, but because of the rupture, I am unable to carry.
Today, I am blessed to be a mother to 18-month-old Carolina. As a New Yorker, the journey to motherhood through gestational surrogacy was a long, heartbreaking and unnecessarily complicated one. New York is one of only three states to outright ban and criminalize the act of a woman carrying an embryo with which she has no genetic relationship.
