Would I go through surrogacy again?

A lot of you have asked me why have I done surrogacy abroad and would I do it again would I of know what I went through? The answer is yes! A million times yes! I’ve gone to the moon and back for these kids, and I would do it all over again. On November […]

Meeting my Baby Girls

What an unexplainable feeling, it’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Let me just add that it’s now hard for me to write a blog. It’s taking me 4 hours to just pull up the word document, between feedings and diaper changes but I wouldn’t give it up for the world. Meeting my baby girls has […]

“Prepping for the shower

I have to say that doing something so traditional as a baby shower is really bringing joy to this very anxious time in my life.  As it gets closer to the time, things are starting to get real.  The preparation for twins is intense! Not only am I getting my house ready for them but […]

“No Place Like Home

From when I can remember I wanted to run away. Ran from who I was, or who I thought I should be; Ran from where I was, always searching for something that, still to this day have no idea what it was.  I started modeling at 15, and that lead me to live all over […]

“Brave or Natural?

It’s funny the reactions I get from people when they find out I’m having twins on my own. They are amazed that I would even think of starting this journey. “You are so brave.” I keep hearing. “I can’t believe you’re doing this on your own!” I don’t see myself as brave. Wanting to have […]

“Is Surrogacy Legal?

I was surprised by how many countries consider surrogacy illegal. I hold an Italian and Canadian passport, and when I found out my surrogate was pregnant in Kenya, I contact the Italian embassy to find out what was needed to get my babies passport so I can take them with me. So I call, and […]

“Breast vs formula

I know it’s still very early but as you may have understood from my blog, I am a planner. So I’ve been reading a lot of information online about breastmilk vs formula. A number of health organizations recommend breastfeeding as the best choice for babies. They say that breastfeeding helps defend against infections, prevent allergies, […]
