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.

Visit in the City

Spent the day with the surro family today, the weather didn't really cooperate for a day on the town (Chicago) but we made the best of it.

We met A&T at their condo and headed out for lunch. We enjoyed some burgers and drinks together on the patio and caught up on the last couple weeks. Of course as most lil ones do, Baby G decided he didn't want to be left out of the meal and began fussing just when the food came. He was much more content after getting a full tummy.

We decided to go down to Navy Pier, we had never been there with the kids. Of course the girls saw the big Ferris Wheel and had to take a ride. All the ladies went up and enjoyed a dreary yet exciting view of Chicago and Lake Michigan. The girls and I also went through a fun house, they enjoyed it despite it not taking very long to navigate through.

I got to cuddle with Baby G a bit as we walked around. A&T say he's smiling now but he didn't share any with me on this visit. I'll likely see them again in a couple weeks, hoping to see that toothless grin then. He's growing and losing that newborn look now. He's still got that full head of hair, his eyes are staying their brilliant blue and he has the most adorable baby cheeks ... he's a cutie pie for sure.

Here's a family pic (snapped by IF). I didn't get a pic of the "new" lil family, maybe next time. ;)
