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.

Summer Fun With The Surrofam

Last night we had a wonderful visit with A&T and Giovanni, my first surrofam.  Great dinner, drinks and conversation as always.

This little guy is growing up so fast!  He and Izzy (our youngest daughter) had fun running around the yard, swinging on the playset, riding bikes and just being silly.  It was a gorgeous day and the kids had hoped for a chance to bring on the slip & slide, but we got distracted by ICE CREAM!  We could all hear the familiar music of the ice cream truck nearby ... it was so close yet so far away. LOL Thanks to IF who chased it down in the neighboring subdivision the kids all got to enjoy a cool treat after their meal.  Yum!

As the night went on we caught up on life and also reminisced a little about the past and how our friendship has evolved.  We went from those first awkward encounters to what now can only be described as extended family.  It's a relationship I feel so blessed to have and have absolutely enjoyed watching Giovanni grow.

We visited into the early morning hours and said our goodbyes until next time ... hopefully we'll make a visit out their way soon and be able to meet up again before long.

Summer has officially begun!!
