I live in Miamisburg, Ohio with my husband, Todd, and our three boys, Noah, Owen and Dylan. I have a deep appreciation for coffee, dark chocolate, non-toxic living and kindness. I think there is beauty in everything around us as long as we’re open to seeing it and we’re all capable of helping someone else as long as we’re brave enough to try!
I was a gestational surrogate and gave birth to a sweet baby girl in June 2019. When I started my journey, I was worried I would be faced with a lot of negative opinions, and thankfully, I was wrong! Most people were extremely positive and talked about what a selfless gift I was giving. But I believe surrogacy is just as much a gift for the surrogate as it is for the Intended Parents. My IF showed me so much confidence and trust, knowing I would take care of his bundle of joy. And I got the front row seat to watch his dream come true when she was born! My journey began with our match and didn’t end at birth. We check in with each other and update each other regularly. My journey continues with an extended international family!
