This is goodbye (for now)

Going to take a little break from this blog for a while.  Time to re-group and focus on some areas in my life that have been neglected...like exercising, my other blog and school (starts Tuesday).

While I have very much enjoyed living my life for the world to see, it is time (for a season) to live a bit more privately.  Hope to update with pictures of both sets of twins as they come!!

Much of what I have written has been transformative for me.  I have grown deeply, loved much and learned many lessons about life, love, friendship, beginnings and ends.  I hope one day to come back to this blog and compile it into a book or surrogacy memoir.  For now, I need time away in hopes that when I return to it, it will be vibrant and new.

Love to all who have read for the past 3 years-


  1. Melissa, I am a first time surrogate, pregnant with twins. I have read your entire blog here and have thoroughly enjoyed your honesty and your insight. Thank you for sharing, I just wanted you to know that it meant something to me.

  2. Thank you Jen!! Best wishes to you as you continue on in your pregnancy! I know you are going to feel such joy as you deliver these babies to their parents!

  4. Hi Melissa, I just finished reading C&C's birth story and much of your blog. I am a friend of "Aunt C", T's sister. You are a truly amazing, wonderful woman. An inspiration! We share similar beliefs, but I have to say that, living in LA, I'm surrounded by like-minded individuals. You're doing all the hard work by having and living the same beliefs in the Bible Belt! Sending love, joy & strength to you and your beautiful family! Can't wait to meet those beautiful babies!

  5. There are no two ways that India is the world leader in attracting patients from across the borders for medical treatment in India like shipping frozen embryos to india, surrogacy cost in india, Surrogate mothers India, Surrogacy in India, Indian surrogacy, gamma knife, brain surgery at best hospitals in India.

  6. Dear fellow blogger,
    I have been following your blog on surrogacy and wondering whether you would like to add one another's links to our websites? I would add a link to your website on my own surrogacy blog site and you would add mine. This would increase the traffic flow to both sites! Let me know if you're in!

  7. Hello Melissa,

    Came by to say thanks a ton for writing such a beautiful blog posts. I read them and still want to keep going through more. Wish you come back soon.

  8. Surrogacy is really a great medical technique that helps those who are failed to conceive due to any medical or genetic problem. Surrogacy in India is the best option and affordable too. This is a boon for couples who want to have their child despite of any issue that stops them to conceive.
