Kim Overton had battled uterine fibroids and questioned her ability to bear a child, but through her successful journey to become a solo starter (a woman who chooses to have a baby without a partner), her family grew to two. However, just a few short years later, she received the priceless gift of surrogacy from her cousin’s daughter, Cydnee. With her new husband by her side, her family blossomed to five.
Their story is a gorgeous one and is beautifully documented on Kim’s blog. The path to a successful surrogacy can be a difficult one, but as Kim shares, it’s beautiful and rewarding. And once her son, Oliver, was ready to make his appearance, Leilani Rogers (an Austin, Texas, birth photographer) was on to capture these priceless moments.
We dare you to flip through these amazing birth photos without shedding a tear.
