Grooooooooow babies!!

How 2 men + 2 women - sex + science = 2 babies!!

This is the funny, heart-warming, tearful, inspiring, and shocking truth about my journey to have a child.

How a man, another man, a woman, another woman, a couple lawyers, a few doctors, a psychologist, a couple social workers and some agencies make a baby.

Success - Part Two

Woo-hoo!  I feel successful again.  This time I don't have my blog to thank, but my agency.  My agency recently contacted me and mentioned that there is a couple in another state considering surrogacy.  The process is overwhelming and they wanted to talk with someone who has been through the experience.  They asked if I would be willing to talk with them.

um...let me think about tha--


I'm thrilled to be able to share my experience with other people.  I'm a little jealous of surrogates who get to "mentor" other surrogates and find surro sisters.  Can I now dub myself an Internded Parent Mentor or a Agency Big Brother?  C'mon, people, I need a cool name for myself. 

This couple read my blog as well as several other blogs I'm connected with and they mentioned that the blogs have been extremely helpful as they try to fully understand what they might go through.  So, on their behalf, and as my first official duty as a Dad-To-Be-Advistor (I'll keep working on the name) I will thank of you bloggers for helping to make a difference in at least one couple's lives.


  1. Awesome, awesome!! I've talked to only a few potential surrogates and what a great feeling it was. Talking about something so life-changing and amazing... ahhh, it's a good thing.

    There is no doubt you will do a kick butt job at this new call of duty. I love reading your thoughts and daddy adventures.

    Keep us posted!

  2. I am incredibly honored to have made it on this blog! As half of the couple mentioned, I wanted to thank you for being such a terrific resource for me. Sharing your story, and being willing to serve as a mentor for people like me (essentially a total stranger) is truly an amazing thing to do, and I don't have the words to thank you enough. I only hope that someday-- after we have also successfully started a family of our own-- we can 'pay it forward' to others, too. From the bottom of my heart... thanks.

  3. Awesome!!!

    Just refer them to my last blog post, and tell them no need to worry about the rest ;0)

  4. Great News Michael, we at The British Surrogacy Centre of California wish you all the best in your surrogacy journey :)
