Am I Famous Yet?

Longtime no...read? Post? Whatever....anyway, I forgot to tell y'all something! NO, I'm not pregnant again lol.
I was interviewed by BBC! There's an internet radio show they do called "The Conversation", which is a show about 2 women from different cultures ultimately on the same path or that have some sort of similarity/commonality.

I received an email from an Assistant Producer of the show October 20, 2017, saying that she found my blog and wanted to know if I'd be interested in speaking with her and possibly being interviewed for the radio show. I was skeptical. I asked my "surro friends" (you know, we're all private investigators!) and we all, collectively decided that it was legit. ☺ So, I emailed her back and said I'd be interested and the rest is history!

I was booked for a studio in Dallas on October 31st (yes, Halloween!) and was connected with the host of the show (in London) as well as another woman by the name of Jeanne Kapongo from DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo). Jeanne is the mom of a son born via surrogacy! ♥
Dressed for Halloween and ready to talk surrogacy!
I was so nervous to be on air...how would I sound? Would I have enough to say? Is this even interesting? So many thoughts...but as soon as we started, it just felt like a natural conversation! We only had an hour, but we could have gone on for much longer! It was so fascinating not only to hear a surrogacy story from an IM's perspective but an IM from a completely different background and culture!
I really love sharing positive stories about surrogacy! There is so much misinformation and negativity surrounding this beautiful process and people should know the more common, bright side!

I really need to figure out how I'm going to stay active with surrogacy and in the surrogacy community without actually being knocked up to do so! ☺ Here's the link to our interview. Hope you enjoy and SHARE! Krystal's BBC Interview - Surrogacy
