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.

Beating the Baby Bust Blues

Well nothing takes care of the disappointment of a failed cycle like a new plan. I was very excited to get an email from Carrie our IVF coordinator with information about our next try. Since stopping all meds after the disappointing beta news, my period arrived right on time and last week I was instructed to start BCP immediately to synch K and I up for a fresh cycle. I'll start Lupron this upcoming Saturday and IM will begin her protocol soon too.

The new calendar has the egg retrieval tentatively set for June 21-25th with transfer to follow between June 24-28th.
