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.

Blogging for Surrogacy

As part of the Surrogacy Together - Blogging For Surrogacy campaign I'd like to introduce you to a few new surrogacy blogs I've recently started following.   Thank you ladies (and gentlemen) for sharing your stories!

Newer to me blogs ....
  • Unexpected Grace  This is our kinda normal.  The norm of love and life in a petri dish. Our family's story of faith, love and determination thru 9 IUI's, 8 IVF, and 8 miscarriages ... not to mention dealing with all of that in the mist of 7 overseas deployments.  Gearing up for the exciting new journey of IVF #9 and the selfless heart of a gestational surrogate and her family.  Where there is a will, there is a way ... and unexpected miracles.   
  • New York Stork Exchange  Documenting a first journey through surrogacy.  Kristen - a 26 year old mother of two and wife to a solider is carrying for a same sex couple in New York, NY.  
  • It.Started.With.A.Bump  The bumpy road of a surrogate, military wife and mother of one.  Kristen was a surrogate for a family member and they all welcomed sweet Liam early April 2013.  
You can find links to these and several other wonderful surrogacy related blogs in the right margin under "Blogs of Interest".   Enjoy!

Hi! I found your blog awhile ago and have really enjoyed reading! My husband and I have recently started our surrogacy journey as intended parents - a friend of mine from college is our surrogate. We're both blogging thru the process if you're interested. :)
