The Surrogacy Journey Continues……

By: Markay Mason

In my previous blog post, I shared the beginning of my surrogacy process and how I found my surrogacy agency, Pathways To Parenthood. Their expertise ensured that I was matched with the best intended parents ever! It was very important to me that I shared the amazing surrogacy journey with the right match. It was important to Pathways To Parenthood also, and they made sure it was the best match for all parties.

After the matching process, all the remaining steps in the surrogacy process went very smoothly. From the medical evaluation at the fertility clinic, to navigating the legal process, to preparing for embryo transfer, Pathways To Parenthood was there every step of the way.

And then there was the embryo transfer! It was a success-we were pregnant! Because my intended parents had experienced so much loss, they did not want to know the outcome until I was really, really pregnant!  Soooo I kept my exciting news secret.  I felt like I was going to burst with excitement and joy!  But I kept it secret from them until the 6-week ultrasound. I will never forget the look on my intended mom’s face when she saw her little bitty baby on the screen! It was the best surprise ever!

Each passing day, week, and doctor’s appointment, I am feeling more and more joy anticipating the birth of this very special baby boy. My heart is so full, and I am so anxious and excited to give my amazing intended parents the best gift.  He is going to be such a light in so many lives-including my own. As we get closer to my due date, I am fully understanding why they call surrogacy a journey.  It has taken me to places I could have never imagined. It has been such a humbling beautiful experience.  I can’t wait for this little boy to be born.  Stay tuned….

Before I go, if you are considering becoming a surrogate, especially if you live in Kansas or Missouri, Pathways To Parenthood is your go to for expertise in surrogacy.  They will provide reliable information about all aspects of surrogacy.    Plus, they care about their surrogates and it shows!  Give Kerry a call at 913-469-5500 or email her at
