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.

34 weeks

I'm getting fat! I'm over 5lbs and quickly running out of space in here.

The comment above was from baby but I you could say the same about me ... whoa I'm feeling huge. The days are getting longer, the nights more restless and the floor and my feet are just too far away these days. LOL Don't get me wrong though, I'm still so excited to be a part of this miracle!

A&T and I all attended a birthing class on Saturday. I found it to be entertaining being in a room of a bunch of first timers. IM and I found it funny that the other moms-to-be seemed most terrified of the IV and spent a good amount of time asking questions and fretting over it ... believe you me the IV will be the least of their worries when it comes time to deliver. LOL

I don't know what it is about me but the thought of labor/delivery actually excites me, it doesn't invoke any fear at all. Of course I could do without the pain part but really it is such an amazing experience from beginning to end. The human body is just incredible!

We are down to just a few last appointments and a couple showers/celebrations before he arrives. After that all we need to do is pack our bags and wait!!
