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.

Negative Beta

We were disappointed to get today's negative beta results. I had a feeling the news wasn't going to be good as the lines on the HPTs kept getting lighter over the last few days, meaning that the hCG in my system was just residual from the trigger I had to inject a few days before transfer.  So on this cold wintery November night here in the Midwest, I'm spending the evening with a bowl of popcorn, a roaring fire and a glass bottle of Moscato.

Hopefully we can put a new plan to work after the holidays and start over fresh in the new year.

Here's to better luck in 2015.
