Parenthood: A Journey of a Lifetime

Your Impact as a Surrogate

Joyful, funny, breathtaking, magical. These are the words I would use to describe parenthood. I believe raising a child is not just the journey of a lifetime. It is the journey of life itself. It happens differently for all us. And none of us can do it alone. That’s why I do what I do.

My own path is full of twists and turns.

I have always been passionate about family. I couldn’t wait to become pregnant, to have a baby, to relive the wonder of childhood, and to share what I’ve learned with someone who was discovering the world for the first time.

Years ago, I taught pottery. I loved connecting with people through art and helping them find the freedom to express themselves. Soon, I was in graduate school, studying to be a therapist. A career was born, and time went by.

At a certain point, I made a decision. I was ready to start a family. My family. On my own. I never thought I would have a baby through surrogacy. But I stood at a crossroads, where modern science and maternal instinct met, and took the biggest step on my journey to motherhood.

I have lived the journey you are on as hopeful parents and I have seen the thrills, and complexities that surrogates experience. That’s the understanding I bring to my agency. I am committed to supporting parents and surrogates – and to guiding people who are passionate about the birth process.

For clients hoping to become parents, I know you have big questions about the process and the experience. I did too. That’s why I’m here. Let’s talk about your story, and take the next step together. Like I said, none of can do it alone.

Surrogates, you have been a part of my journey, too. I know firsthand that you are making dreams come true for parents who are longing to have a child. And I know you have your own stories, and your own hopes, too. My job is to help you achieve your goals in the best way possible for you, and to match you with parents who share your expectations and values.

In surrogacy, no two journeys are the same. But I can promise you this: I will do everything I can to make you comfortable throughout the process. I will tell you every truth I have learned and lived. I will be there for you, day and night. And the journey will be like nothing you imagined.

Additional Information for International Parents:

USA Surrogacy International will connect you with an attorney (if you do not already have one) that will help guide you through all the paperwork and documents needed to bring your new family home. The word “International” is in our name by design. We know that you can expect to be in the United States for 4-6 weeks after birth, until the baby is able to board an airplane. We will be with you during this time as well.
