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.

Round Three

My IPs and I have been working on their dream for nearly a year. In November of 2013 we started the process and now, a couple of attempts and disappointments later, we continue to fight to see their dream through and are beginning our third IVF cycle. We are hopeful that this will be the cycle that beats all odds and is successful.

I started Lupron today which will suppress my ovaries so that the RE can manipulate my cycle and sync everything to IM.  This will be a fresh cycle so when we transfer will be determined by how she responds to stim medications.  IM will undergo another egg retrieval once her follicles are mature.  As of now, our transfer timeline looks to be early November but we should know more in the coming weeks.
