"We started saying it out loud to kind of see how it would sound, to see what words we would use. We got to experiment, give it a go before it really begins to sink in. So that by the time they got to three and a half, four - we felt much more confident doing it." Sarah
Consider why you may be delaying. Ideally you should begin talking to your child by three years of age. If you are putting this off, this may be a sign that you are not quite at ease with having used a donor or surrogate. Frequently, many people find that their desire to have a baby was so strong they didn't give themselves the time or space needed to process what this meant for them emotionally and then the issues tend to arise further down the track. This can interfere with their relationship with their child. If this is the case for you, support is available from VARTA.
