IN HER OWN WORDS
Share your reasons & motivations for pursuing surrogacy:
I want to be a surrogate to be able to help other people who have had trouble having a baby, fulfill that dream of becoming parents. I love my children so much and can't imagine my life without them. I want other people to experience parenthood who wouldn't be able to otherwise.
What would you like prospective Intended Parents to know about you?
I would like for my prospective intended parents to know that I am very excited about being a surrogate and cannot wait to meet them and start this life changing journey together.
We believe that everyone deserves a family, tell us about yours:
I am married and we have two girls, Malaya, who is almost 7, and Madeline who is one. Malaya has started playing soccer this year and she loves it, she is in first grade and loves going to school and learning. Madeline started solid foods now and loves to bounce!
Who will be your greatest source of support through this journey?
Friends and family are extremely supportive of my decision
How will the financial compensation for being a surrogate help you and your family?
It will help us to be able to pay off our debt and to put a down payment on a home for our family.
Please share your expectations of the surrogacy process:
I think that it will initially involve a process of meeting with different parents before being chosen to be a surrogate. Then it will involve a number of doctor appointments and finally having embryo's implanted. After that it will be a bit of a wait until we find out if they took, if they did implant then I will be pregnant and enjoy being pregnant for 9 months. If the parents want to come visit and speak with the baby while I'm pregnant that is great and if not that is understandable too. After a healthy and happy pregnancy I will give birth to their baby and then they will be able to take him/her home.
