About Me

Caledonia, Northern Illinois, United States
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.

So we wait

I got an update from IM today. Looks like we will continue to stay on hold. After testing blood sugar levels again the news is still not great, her levels were elevated yet and even higher than before despite being on meds to lower them. The primary has given her a new medication and instructions to monitor her blood sugar and she will follow up again the end of September.

Think Positive Thoughts

The latest is that we are "fingers crossed" on our way to clearance. IM has an appointment again with her primary Tuesday (8/26) to review labs that will be drawn the previous Friday. If the glucose levels are under control we'll get the green light. I'm going to remain cautiously optimistic since we've been down this road before thinking we were good to go and then....ugh. Please think positive thoughts for us.
