Being a mom has nothing to do with biology or
the path we choose. During this time, we’d love your support for us and our journey.


Everyone’s journey is different—the decision of who
will carry is up to my partner and me alone. Instead,
you can share our excitement, and ask me how I’m
feeling about this next step.

My journey is personal.

are lots of different options like IUI, IVF, surrogacy,
and yes, adoption…but maybe we just aren’t there yet.


You don’t know if I’ve been trying for a while or
problems I may be facing. Frankly, it’s no
business. Instead, let me come to you with
that news.
