In October of 2018, Mike and I (and our 4 kids) started a journey to help a couple become a family. The process began with an agency called Family Source Consultants.
After looking at a number of profiles, we found a couple our age with similar beliefs and values who had struggled for over 6 years to become parents. They chose us too, and we finally got to meet them in December of 2018.
We immediately connected and were on our way to becoming a surrogate for them.
First, Mike and I both had mental and physical health screenings, then a lot of legal stuff and paperwork to go through, and finally, we had to meet with their fertility clinic in downtown Chicago to confirm we were acceptable. In January 2019, we were officially cleared to go.
We had a wonderful experience and delivered a beautiful Baby Girl in the middle of COVID on April 24, 2020. I love sharing my experience and would love to help others who have questions. Looking forward to our next adventure.
