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.

Great Start

Just a very brief update. K and I both had monitoring appointments today and all is looking good. I started meds a little over a week ago - tomorrow the estrogen protocol begins that will thicken the uterine lining in preparation for the lil buttons that we hope to transfer in a couple weeks. IM is now beginning her protocol that will stimulate her ovaries to produce multiple follicles, which we hope will result in a number of eggs to retrieve and fertilize. She's also trying acupuncture and massage this time around - figure it can't hurt. We are off to a great start and keeping everything crossed that this will be a smooth cycle with a perfect outcome. Keep us in your thoughts!
