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.

Cuddle Up

The surrofamily came to visit yesterday. We had a very nice time chatting over a delicious dinner at our home. It's always so nice to see them and check in on how big the lil man is. He was quite bright eyed and alert and very busy checking out the girls and sharing smiles with us all. Baby G was such a good boy while we enjoyed our dinner, just gazing around the playroom, I imagine thinking how fun it will be to visit Miss Tiffany's house once he can move about and play. LOL

We caught up on the last few weeks over a couple bottles of wine and talked into the very late hours of the night.

Baby G has had a few babysitters in the last month and A&T have been able to enjoy a few short evenings out alone. Sounds like everything went well, they have a lot of friends and family who can't wait to help out, he's been in very good hands while mom and dad are away.

IF just wrapped up work for the next month so they all have a bit of time to enjoy a couple laid back weeks before IM's maternity leave ends. She'll go back to work in August so it'll be just the guys hanging out at home for some male bonding until early fall when IF returns to work too.

IPs have a couple of their first trips with "baby on board" coming up. They'll be visiting friends & family in Michigan next week and then early August it is off to their favorite city, New Orleans, with Grandpa and Grandma along too. Wishing them lots of luck with their first adventures away from home!!

I'm in disbelief that Baby G will be 3 months old this next week! Where has the time gone! Can't believe that tomorrow (Friday) marks 12 weeks ago that I went into labor and the second phase of this journey began. I know I say it nearly every update but I can't express enough how blessed I feel to have been a part of helping such a wonderful couple create their family. My heart is full.
