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.

15 weeks

I can move and love to suck my thumb! My movements will soon be strong enough to feel.

Hello everyone! Wow can't believe we are at 15 weeks already, time is flying by.

Pregnancy-wise this has been a quiet week (which is good). I've been feeling great and experiencing movement on a regular basis which is a wonderful feeling. Nothing really new to report. We'll go back in to see the OB on Monday (11/16) just for a quick u/s check to be sure the bleed continues to reabsorb and baby looks good.

This weekend I had the pleasure of spending some time with my mom and three youngest girls, we went on a lil getaway to Minneapolis. The reason for the trip was to meet up with a group of surrogates from the Minnesota/Wisconsin area. There was a great turn out and we enjoyed spending a few hours visiting & eating. I hope to add some pics soon (gotta steal them from a fellow surro friend when she posts them ;) ) My mom, the girls and I spent the rest of our day at Mall of America. We did a lot of window shopping, the girls tolerated walking the mall but got a bit more restless when we'd actually step foot into a store. They really enjoyed Nickelodeon Universe and all the sights. Before heading home Sunday we had breakfast and hit IKEA for a bit. Chloe, Lauren and Isabelle were great travelers, thank goodness for DVD players. It was very nice to spend the time with them and my mom too.
