I'm 34 and am the mother of two rambunctious kids of my own. I met my husband when I was only 18 years old and we've been married almost 12 years. My family is my world and I would be lost without them! I own and operate my own custom cake company, The Cake Box Miami. I documented my surrogacy journey in Miami, Florida on my Instagram Surrogacy Diaries.
I can't remember a time when I didn't think about being a surrogate. It has always been something that was placed in my heart! Looking back, my mom always instilled helping others into our lives growing up, and I definitely think that made a big impact on my decision. My aunt also almost became a surrogate when I was younger, so that might have planted that first seed.
I was most anxious about meeting my IP's in person. Even though we had met via Zoom and had emailed for several months before the transfer, you just never know! They are amazing. I was also really nervous about the injections, but, they really weren't all that bad.
At times I wondered what legacy I would leave behind for my children and I hope watching me go through this surrogacy journey has taught them to open their hearts and help others if given the opportunity.
