Updated November 2018: My name is Leslie, I’m currently 32 and have two daughters, they are 7 and 8(almost 9). I have been married for 10 years to my wonderful husby. We also have two dogs, a yorkie named Apollo, and a chiweenie named Archie.
I decided to become a surrogate because I wanted to be able to help give a family the same joy I have when spending time with my girls. I can’t imagine what some of these families have gone through trying to conceive a child of their own. I had such wonderful pregnancies and absolutely loved every minute of each one, and I’m looking forward to getting to share the experience with such a wonderful couple.
I get the question “won’t it be hard to give up your baby?”, and the answer is absolutely not! I’m going into this knowing that this baby (or babies) is not mine and getting to spend time with my IPs and experience and share their excitement helps make this journey all the more special, especially since, by a crazy twist of fate, we got matched with family for our first journey.
I have been a surrogate 3 times now. My first journey I carried boy/girl twins who turned 3 at the end of October. My second journey I carried a little girl who turned one in July, and unfortunately my third journey ended in miscarriage and the IPs only had one embryo so we don’t get to try again.
