Got PRIDE? These Surro's do!

Last weekend a few close surro-sisters came into town for the Long Beach Pride Festival. Fun times!!! Our weekend was filled with lots of food, laughter, and small talk. I love having the opportunity to spend time with these girls that I have come to know so well and have grown so close with.

Dinner with the girls at La Creperie
Our shirts this year said "Filled with PRIDE".
Very fitting, considering our uterus' are/were literally "filled" with pride as we carry a baby for gay men.
Stacie's husband created the design and I absolutely LOVE it.
If you're interested in purchasing one of these rad shirts, you can do so here:


Rock on, dude!!!

It shouldn't have to be earned... :(

OK, who's IPs are pictured on the poster? ;) And how cute is Grandma!
Love this!!

I've known this man since the 3rd grade.
When he came out in high school, I told him I would carry his baby.
Not knowing what Surrogacy was at the time, just that I wanted him to have the opportunity
to be a parent and have a child of his own if he chose to. My offer still stands.  
And last, but certainly not least, my dearest surro sister AMY was in town for her
medical clearance for round #2 (coming this Fall) so she was able to stay the weekend
and celebrate with us at PRIDE!!
She birthed 8lb boy/girl TWINS last November into the arms of their loving and ever so handsome Daddies.
In case you missed it, that was 8lbs EACH!! Whoa baby!!
God love my Minnesota Sister.

I love the pictures! I am so glad you guys had such an amazing Pride weekend! As someone who is blessed to be able to hold his daughter because of a woman who was willing to give the gift of fatherhood to two gay men I am completely touched by your pride, suppport, and love. Thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart.
