About Me

I am a Thirty-Something mother of four beautiful girls. My love for them, and the joy I've experienced during this crazy ride called motherhood, has inspired me to help make the dream of a family become a reality for couples through gestational surrogacy. I've proudly helped A&T, as their lives were forever changed when they welcomed a son in April 2010 and K&S were blessed as parents in Sept 2012 when we welcomed their twin boys. I completed my final surrogacy journey Nov 2015 when I helped a wonderful local couple J&W and Big Brother add their family with the birth of twin boys. I am so very fortunate to have wonderful relationships with each one of my surro-families and continue to share in their lives.

Baby Mama

As a surro myself, I really hope people will see this movie was obviously written for the comedic effect and to be humorous because the portrayal of the entire surrogacy process was pretty inaccurate.

I was disappointed, I wasn't really miffed because I knew they portrayed Amy Poehler's character Angie (SM) to be ignorant and immature but I was hoping for it to have a "feel good" ending. You know, where you walk away touched by the journey they went through together which just didn't happen for me. Everything ends up ok in the end ... she [Tina Fey/Kate] gets her baby and all but it totally removed the best and most amazing part of surrogacy...helping create a beautiful family. DH wanted to remind me it was a comedy not a drama but I didn't like that it left me feeling unfulfilled.
