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.

Almost Time

Over the last couple of days the little embryos have been watched and 3 of the 4 are continuing to grow. I'm not sure of the details regarding number of cells and grade but the RE has recommended we do a 3-day transfer. Although a 5-day transfer at the blastocyst stage would have been ideal, since there are only a few viable embryos it's best to get them back into their natural environment and out of the lab. We are hopeful one of these "maybe babies" will be strong enough to implant and a pregnancy will occur. Tomorrow at 7 AM we'll head to the clinic for what we can only hope will be the last attempt at making K&S parents. I'll update tomorrow with more transfer news. Sticky thoughts appreciated!!
