"As a mom I’ve experienced the pure joy and love from having a child, something that can’t be described or replicated. My hope is for all to experience that joy, if they have the same dream to be a mother/parent.
I’ve always wanted to be a mom and that desire was even more prominent when we had our first miscarriage. I had a glimpse into the possibility of this being a harder journey for me. It wasn’t until after my daughter was born that becoming a surrogate even crossed my mind. I would be lying if I said the fourth trimester didn’t push me into it. I struggled with the transition to having my daughter be outside my belly and often joked that I would love to be pregnant 100x if it didn’t come with the newborn lack of sleep after. That’s when my two thoughts collided, and I began my search to become a surrogate.
I came across Pathways To Parenthood Surrogacy Agency after I spoke to someone at a much larger organization. I loved the atmosphere Tina and Kerry provided. They cared about me, my family, my future while also caring about their intended parents. After speaking with me, they immediately knew which family would be a good fit - both times.
I am now on my second journey as a surrogate, and it is solely because of the positive, wonderful experience I have had at Pathways To Parenthood. They got to know me as a person and a mom. I felt valued and heard. My best interest has always been at the forefront of their decision making. Becoming a surrogate is a beautiful gift! It’s a gift that I have loved the opportunity to have, and don’t take for granted."
