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.

Happy Fall Y'all !!

A couple of weeks ago we meet up with K&S and the boys (GSx2) for a day filled of fun at the Pumpkin Patch.  We thought we were going to be rained out but actually we just missed the dreary weather and the sun came out for our get together.  There were animals galore of all varieties, Ryan and Mason loved watching them - especially the giraffe!  They cruised around in the stroller while my girls ran about exploring all the neat sites and activities.  We are definitely going to make this a yearly get together and I can't wait to watch the boys join in on the fun as they get older.

The boys are getting so big and have been on the move for some time now.  They cruise around things without any trouble and have been taking unassisted steps as well.  They are both lil chatterboxes talking lots of jibberish but no real words as of yet.  They are hitting all their milestones and doing great!  K says she's been getting them out more and awhile back enrolled them in a play gym where they get to socialize with other little ones.  They keep everyone busy and on their toes.

The family recently said goodbye to their Au Pair Jackie who has been with them since just before the boys arrival.  She was a great help to K&S as they adjusted to parenthood and took such good care of the boys.  Their new caregiver joined this bustling household a couple of weeks ago and it sounds like the transition is going well.

I just love spending time with these guys and I'm looking forward to possibly seeing them again over the holiday season and also hoping to connect with A&T and Giovanni (GSx1) soon too.

Be sure to check out the pictures.  You can find photos of our afternoon together under the RECENT album. :)
