A Beautiful Journey Ministry

9 05 2012

Due to seeing the pain miscarriages and infertility can cause a family, God spoke to our hearts and opened our eyes to a new ministry. I know right? The ministry of giving birth to children? It may sound weird but I couldn’t think of a more amazing way to show Gods love! Bryan and I have been so blessed to have the gift of children in our lives so why not be the vessel to give others that joy? So since this is a ministry, we should treat it like a ministry. What kind of church charges people to walk in on a Sunday morning for a church service? Would it be an effective ministry, or better yet, would it even be a ministry? I was reading online that the typical compensation for a first time surrogate through an agency is between $20,000 and $30,000. I had the chance to be a Gestational Surrogate though an agency and almost became one. My comp was going to be $20,000 + the benefits that go along with surrogacy. After the IPs changed their minds due to their impatience, we realized we were looking at this wrong. God called us into this, not as a way to make money, but to give others the wonderful gifts we have, and that is children. Although times are difficult with the lack of money and Bryan being laid off, we are going to do this, not as a business but as a ministry. Not just any ministry, but A Beautiful Journey Ministry…
