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.

We Have A Date!!!

I HAVE A CALENDAR (almost)!!! Since RE/IPs decided against a fresh cycle and the plan is to now do a frozen embryo transfer (FET) with the two beautiful blasts that were vitrified we can move things along a bit faster. According to the nurse coordinator - my soon-to-be written calendar - will have meds starting approximately March 26th with a FET scheduled Monday, April 25th (the day after Baby G's first birthday). K&S won't be there unfortunately, they'll be in Hawaii. At first we hesitated thinking we might reconsider and push everything back to May but, I told IM it isn't so much them being there for the procedure that is important but more so sharing in the excitement, anxiety and all the other emotions that go with transfer. Since they were ok with it and I'm ok with it we decided to stick with April but plan to get together - face to face - in the days before they leave to share in all those pre-transfer emotions. I'm lucky that Daisy, my best friend and fellow surro, will get to be my companion and I can rub her twin belly for good luck. It will certainly be a nice distraction for IM to be sunning herself on a warm beach while we make our way through the TWW. I'm so hoping that the highlight of their vacation will be the news of a BFP.

Only catch is we have to get through contracts, which haven't officially even been started yet, and submit them to the clinic by March 23rd for meds to start on schedule. Praying we can pull it off!!
