Phoenix Couple Seeking Surrogate

I am contacted by people in all aspects of surrogacy,: for advice, for help, to find a match, etc.

When I was contacted by phone via a sign language interpreter, I was introduced to a very touching story with the cutest/sweetest couple. They wanted me to help get their story out there and I'm happy to do just that. Their story is already spreading, let's spread it around some more.



They were recently on the news- Support pours in for Phoenix couple seeking surrogate

Check out their GoFundMe page where they share a cute video, and I'm sure you'll fall in love with them and their story, just as I did. http://www.gofundme.com/9qlrq4

They are offering different reward levels for donations.

The Baby Chase by Leslie Morgan Steiner



Book Description

 November 5, 2013
From the New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Love comes a riveting new narrative about surrogate pregnancy from both sides of the equation—the parents and the gestational carrier.
Once considered a desperate, even morally suspect option, surrogacy is now sweeping headlines, transforming the lives of celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman and Elton John, and changing the face of the American family. But how much do we really know about it? And is it really as easy and accessible – emotionally, financially, legally and physically – as magazines make it out to be? We often hear about successful outcomes, but little about the journey – about the precious hope that starts it all, the ups and downs of finding a surrogate, the heartache and obstacles, the risks and expenses at every step, or the unbelievable joy when years of determination pay off. In The Baby Chase, acclaimed writer Leslie Morgan Steiner weaves three stories together — of a nurse, a firefighter, and the Indian gestational carriers and doctors who helped them — to provide one intensely personal look at what makes surrogacy so controversial, fascinating, and in some cases, the only ray of hope for today's infertile parents-to-be.

Rhonda Wile and her husband Gerry struggled for years with infertility. With perseverance that shocked everyone around them, they tried every procedure and option available – unsuccessfully – until they finally decided to hire a surrogate. While surrogacy was being touted as a miracle for hopeful parents, for Rhonda and Gerry, it seemed an impossible and unaffordable dream. Until they came across the beaming smile of a beautiful Indian woman on the internet… and, within a few short months, embarked on a journey that would take them deep into the emerging world of Indian carriers, international medical tourism, and the global surrogacy community.

Moving, page-turning, and meticulously researched, this complex human story is paired with an examination of the issues—religious, legal, medical and emotional—that shapes surrogacy as a solution both imperfect and life-changing.

Once Upon a Surrogate: The Stork's Helpers by Jill Hancock Reeder (aka ME)



4.45 of 5 stars 4.45  (stars out of 5)·   rating details  ·  11 ratings  ·  10 reviews
Have you ever wondered what is like to be a surrogate mom? Jill Hancock Reeder describes what it is like to be a “helper”- a stork if you will in children’s terms. Jill has been a surrogate before. She knows what it is like. Illustrations for the book are created by none other than her own children! It is simply beautiful!

If you or your children have ever wondered what is like to be a surrogate, I would highly recommend this book. You can catch a small glimpse of what it is like to be an incubator to someone who can’t have any children of their own. You can teach your children there is more than one way to have children.
And if you yourself are struggling to have children perhaps surrogacy might be the answer for you!

7 years? Wow! Happy Birthday Surro Baby!

On July 31, 2006 

I got sent home from the hospital and went to sleep. I was so tired.
I woke up at 4:00 AM on August 1st wimpering. I had never felt contractions that strong before. My husband heard me wimpering and asked if I was okay. I told him we better hurry and get to the hospital ASAP! I was in so much pain I couldn't talk very well so my husband called my IPs to let them know. (They had just flown in the night before and hadn't gotten much sleep either) We let my mom know what was going on. (She had flown in to watch our kids) The 20 minute freeway drive was spent with me death gripping the door handles of my hubby's truck. By the time we got to the hospital I thought I was going to die!! Well, they didn't send me home this time, but by the time they got me paperwork to fill out, it was too late for meds. It was time to have a baby. This was so different than my children's births. My first natural experience and she was born face up. Her parents were there beaming with pride over their little bundle of joy. All I wanted to do was sleep! Once I had rested, I was so overwhelmingly happy. I was awestruck. And when I finally held her it didn't feel like I was holding the baby I carried. Thank you to my former IPs for the amazing experience and memories! Happy Birthday sweet little 7 year old!  🎉🎈
You may not know me, but you hold a special place in my heart. ❤

Let's talk about surrogacy

The other day I was invited to join my friend Dawn Marmorstein on the premiere of her radio show. I rarely turn down an opportunity to talk about surrogacy and shed some light on the subject. (Especially when it's with someone I know and respect.)

I had a great time and hopefully we helped answered a few questions for those who want to know more about surrogacy. 

I do have to admit that I got a little nervous and upon listening to it later, noticed I said "you know" a good amount. (I'm only human)
Sometimes I get a little sidetracked with the questions too.

You can listen here-
