Welcome to 2018!
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I hope you find it informative. I wanted to introduce myself as well as the founder, Jen, as we will both be posting from time to time when we come across interesting topics, have questions, or even hear hot topics in regards to surrogacy. My name is Karen and I recently moved to Boise with my husband and two children. I have been "in" the surrogacy/third party reproduction world for over 5 years now and my passion for helping couples grow their families has grown tremendously over that time. I have been an egg donor (completed 4 cycles) and am on my second surrogacy currently. Jen has completed two surrogacy journeys and has worked within the surrogate community for years now both in support groups and professionally.
We would love to use this blog space as a place to pose thoughts, give personal opinions, address issues and concerns brought to us, and grow close as a community. If you have any specific topics you would like to see us address, we would love to hear from you. Some of the topics that I will go over in the next few weeks include, why Gestational Surrogacy is needed, the growing need for US surrogates for international couples, what the ASRM guidelines are and why we follow them, along with other topics that I can go more in depth with.
I hope your 2017 was wonderful and I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year! Let's start out 2018 on a good foot!
