About Me

My photo
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.

Mother's Day with Mixed Emotions

As I come to visit my blog on this Mother's Day I have mixed emotions. I'm overjoyed to know A (FIM) is celebrating today with Giovanni toddling around - I'm sure keeping her very busy. Playing a part in that miracle makes my heart full beyond words. I am saddened of course that K (IM) didn't get better news this past week but I am hopeful that when next year comes around she too will have the title of mom-to-be or even Mom on this very special day.

To all the moms in waiting, the moms-to-be, the birth mothers, the mommies with angels in heaven, the mothers of children young and old, the grandmothers, great-grandmothers, aunts, surrogates, teachers, child care providers and any women who has played a special role in the life of a child - may you be blessed.
