IN HER OWN WORDS
Share your reasons & motivations for pursuing surrogacy:
I believe everyone should have a family. I feel blessed that I can help a deserving couple or person have a child of their own. My first journey was a wonderful experience and I look forward to this one being one as well.
We believe that everyone deserves a family, tell us about yours:
My little family consists of me and my daughter. She is 9 years old and she is my everything. My father and step mother have been a great source of support in my life. I do not know what I would do without them. I'm am the oldest of my siblings, I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters.
Who will be your greatest source of support through this journey?
My father, step mother and sister.
How will the financial compensation for being a surrogate help you and your family?
I am a single mother and take care of all of our financial needs. I get no support from her father. Being a surrogate helps me by helping to pay for my daughter's education, she is in Catholic school. It will also help with home major repairs that are needed. I plan on having the roof replaced on our house and replace the fence.
Please share your expectations of the surrogacy process:
I expect everything to go smoothly. I never had any complications with either of my pregnancies. I have faith that everything will turn out great.
