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.

Surrogacy Together

Awhile back I made a post about Sharing Surrogacy and how I have a passion for educating and helping potential gestational surrogates and intended parents navigate the process.  A campaign was started somewhat recently bringing attention to just that very cause and I wanted to share some information.

Surrogacy Together; Mission Statement; Surrogacy Together is non-profit organization based in San Diego, CA. Our Mission is to share inspiring stories about the Surrogacy community with the world.  We will educate and advocate for Surrogacy by sharing our uplifting, compelling, and empowering personal stories.  We will share stories about our successful Surrogacy journeys and our happiest moments.  We will create a visual story through our Photo Campaign sharing "What Surrogacy Means to Me" with the world.  We will host events to educate future Intended Parents and Surrogates about the process and how to get started.  We will provide financial grants to individuals and couples that otherwise would not be able to move forward with Surrogacy.  We will host annual Celebrations to share our joy with everyone that has helped us Co-Create our "Family through teamwork".

I've revised a previous post from my blog to share on their site. It gives a glimpse of my surrogacy journeys and described what it means to me to be a surrogate. (A Journey of Love & Passion Towards Parenthood)  I couldn't imagine having a more worthwhile passion.  I am so very proud of the 3 beautiful lives and 2 special families I've helped create through the surrogacy process and I'm forever grateful to have had this life changing opportunity.

Please visit their website for more information.

Thank you for posting this. I have a friend who is a single guy trying to become a dad but cannot financially handle surrogacy on his own. I see this agency can provide help. Hopefullly it'll work out for him one day soon. I appreciate the lead!

Thanks for sharing our information. We have helped two couples already. One just had their transfer and are in the middle of the two week wait and the second one is a few weeks away from their transfer.

We will be taking applications for additional individuals/couples soon.

The best precious gift in this world is to be parents. Spreading happiness through surrogacy is a good thought.
