Endings and Beginnings – The Way AheadA Surrogacy Legacyby Carey KinyonThe gift bequeathed, it is time to move on; but, where to go, He only knows.A year has been spent, coming to know the loving home, where the gift is to go.It’s a family affair on two sides of the coin; two families for one lucky baby to join.One family will go with the baby in tow, the other left only with memories to sow.Sadness and longing cannot be helped, only time will help this healing, this lonesome feeling.A baby was born, a beautiful thing indeed: the result; a Mother in need.She’ll need the support of those closest to her; however, I am fine is what she will retort.
A Different Kind of Love AltogetherA Surrogacy Story Continued…by Carey KinyonLove – not just the “splendored” kind…It takes all forms, one such, some are most fortunate to findOnly sacrifice and selflessness will get you closeOf this love you’ll need but one doseRare as it is, and in the reach of very fewThe emotion spoken of is the payment that is due.The Surrogate Mother gives of herself…She tends to her “gift” above all else - for a time.As the Dove lit upon a full nest, the wonder of this act is nurture at its best.Life grows over a period of months and the emotion expands.In time the Surrogate will hold the gift in her warm, loving hands.For now she has cause to nurture and protect.It is her duty to ensure those who stand vigil will one day realize its beauty.As the moment draws nearer our vigilant Mother begins to let go:Her journey has almost drawn to an end and all around knows.
At first glance, Carey Kinyon doesn't appear to be the type of guy who writes poetry.
