as i was driving away this morning

as i was driving away from home this morning and my twin boys were waving and saying “bye mommy,” my heart began to melt and ache and i wanted to pick them up and squeeze them so tightly. i then realized that i am able to leave the house because of the type of work that I am doing – helping people with infertility create their family. the joy i receive is so close to my heart as I assist couples and individuals with their journey of IVF, egg donation and surrogacy.

my boys will turn 2 years old on Septemebr 8th. They are my every day blessing and I can’t wait until they are old enough to understand what mommy does for work.

Boys Are 2 Months Old Today

I knew it would happen, eventually. During 5 years of infertility and major disappointment, I knew one day we would achieve our dream of parenthood. My twin boys are 2-months old today. My little guys would not be here were if not for the assistance of a lovely, lovely surrogate and third party reproduction. We tend to only hear of the horror stories associated with IVF, egg donation and surrogacy. I’m here to vouch for an industry that creates beautiful families and enhances life.

My company is Baby Steps Fertility, LLC. I founded Baby Steps based on personal experience, my fascination with the industry and my compassion for the individuals, couples and Intended Parents that require fertility treatment and third party reproduction to create their families. My goal always is to guide you through the often harrowing experience of egg donation and surrogacy while saving you precious time and money. If you are thinking of embarking upon egg donation and/or surrogacy please visit www.babystepsfertility.com for more information. My sons are proof that anything is possible.

UPDATE:

With deep compassion, I am orchestrating an online auction to benefit the victims of the SGUSA/Michael Charles Financial tragedy. Joining me in this endeavor is third party reproductive attorney, Andrew Vorzimer. For those of you unfamiliar with what has transpired, SurroGenesis, Tonya Collins and Michael Charles Financial are being investigated by the FBI for allegedly absconding with over 3 million dollars of Intended Parents’ money in surrogacy escrow holdings.

This heinous act has devastated hundreds of people – Intended Parents, surrogates and egg donors. Life savings have been lost, along with couples’ dreams of parenthood.  Surrogates are about to give birth, egg donors are in the middle of donation cycles and there is no money to proceed.  For so many people involved, the outcome is looking disastrous. Money needs to be raised quickly.

This online auction will take place via eBay on Friday, May 1st.  There will be exciting and affordable items to bid on. No donation is too small, no donated item too insignificant. Along these lines, if you, your family or friends have access to items that we can auction off please email me at liz@babystepsfertility.com or call 310/880-9125.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and acts of kindness.
