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.

What an Amazing Year!

No other word can describe this past year ... it has been nothing short of AMAZING! One year ago today my IM and I held hands as we went through a third transfer, a third chance to dream, wish and hope. After two failures it was hard to not wonder if we were in for another disappointment but we all stayed positive and prayed. One year ago today a lil man, literally only cells big, came into our lives and we didn't even know it yet.

Happy Transfer Anniversary A&T and Baby G.

Today also marks the end of a chapter. I had decided that this week would be the end to me providing breast milk. Over the last 4 months I've supplied him with nearly 30 gallons of liquid gold! I'm very proud of this accomplishment and want to thank my IPs for the opportunity to stay connected and continue providing for him beyond the womb. It's a little bittersweet but after 365 days of nurturing sweet Baby G I'm glad to have my body back. Besides the chunky rolls to show for it I'm hoping the benefits keep him healthy through his first cold and flu season.

The surro family will be out for a visit and final EBM pick up later this week. I'm looking forward to some cuddles and seeing how big he's grown in the last month. His four month well baby check is just around the corner too so I'll update again soon.

This is happiness
