Long Beach PRIDE Festival

I attended Long Beach PRIDE this past weekend--my first time ever--and it was a blast!! I was determined to make a shirt that was surrogacy related and when I reached out to my surro-sisters, one of them had an extra shirt from her trip to SF PRIDE last year and she was more than happy to pass it down to me. 


Dont mind the droopy eyes....i was going off of 4.5 hours of sleep the night before!

Many people at PRIDE liked my shirt....and a few even asked "What does My Uterus is an ALLEY mean?". Oh boy people!! If my uterus was an alley, i'd be in big trouble. My uterus is in fact an ALLY--I am working on becoming a gestational surrogate for a gay couple--thus myself and my uterus being an ALLY. :)

I had an amazing time supporting the community, my mother, sister, and friends at the PRIDE festival. Here are a few of my favorite photo opps of the day!

I proudly support
My friend of 20yrs, Randy~~My Mom~~My Sister
My friend Randy and his husband, John

My sister and her girlfriend
Enough said.

I am determined to become a gestational surrogate for a gay couple. Whether it be my first journey or my second (my heart is set on two surrogacy journeys)....I will help a gay couple bring a child into this world.

And as one of my surro-sister's, Kelly, at Just the Stork once said---
 "I promise I will fight for your rights until the day I die."

It's been requested that I give an update, so here it is.

I have no update.

BOOO I know! I hate that I don't have anything good to post but, it is what it is, so I'm dealing with it.

I will leave you with this picture though. I was at the beach the other day flying kites with my kids and I stumbled across this lil guy. It immediately got my attention and the thought of "Anything is possible" came to mind and reminded me very much of what I am going through right now in this surrogacy journey. This lil guy is me, breaking through the sand, blossoming into something so beautiful. What ever my future holds with surrogacy, it is going to be beautiful and I can not wait.
