About Me

My photo
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.

In Honor of Mother's Day

I wanted to wish my favorite new mom a Happy Mother's Day!! Celebrating this day has been a long time coming and I am just thrilled that I had a small part in making that happen for "A". I'm overjoyed that there is another wonderful woman enjoying this special day with her precious child close by.

Here's a favorite lil poem that my mother gave to me when I became a mommy for the first time nearly 16 years ago. It's has hung on the wall in the girls nursery throughout the years as a reminder of those early days.

To A First Time Mother

Relax my dear ... your
little elf is just an amateur

So if your hands so newly filled
with tasks seem somewhat less
than skilled ... Relax, I say,

This little pinkling
doesn't have the slightest inkling
that you are new to baby lore ...
He's never had a mom before.

God bless all the moms out there and have a very
Happy Mother's Day!
