My Surrogacy Journey
My dream of having a family of my own was made possible through assisted reproductive technology (ART) and surrogacy. After learning that I could not carry a child myself, my husband and I were devastated and overwhelmed, but our desire to have a child was strong. So, we decided to pursue IVF/gestational surrogacy to have a baby.
Thirteen months after starting the process, our surrogate gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I cannot begin to describe the flood of emotions I felt when my daughter was placed in my arms. I will never forget that day, and my husband and I will forever be grateful for our surrogate. Three years later, we had another wonderful surrogacy journey that resulted in the birth of our son.
Because I am an infertility survivor and mother by surrogacy, I know firsthand what you will need – support, guidance, communication and a smooth process – and what you will go through when starting your family. My experience also helps me guide you through the financial, emotional and legal aspects of ART and surrogacy.
I can say with confidence that few (if any) attorneys deliver the unique insight I can bring to your journey. From knowing what to expect during the surrogacy process to preventing and resolving problems with your chosen surrogate, I share information, ideas and advice learned as an attorney and as an intended parent.
