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.

They say seeing is believing ...

... but hearing makes it pretty real too!

For the fun of it, I purchased a doppler to use at home this pregnancy. I've tried a couple of times over the last week and nothing but ... today I found one of the buggers! I think this would be the fetal heart tones of Baby A (on my left).

I just realized that I have a surro friend, preggo with twins, and she is a day ahead of you! She said term would be 9/14/12 - doesn't seem that far away :)

So happy for you guys....I love checking-in :)

I wanted to get a doppler this last go-around, but Michael wouldn't let me. He said I'd be freaking out if I couldn't find the heartbeat and he couldn't deal with my obsessing any more than I already did. LOL! He was probably right!
