5 years ago today, I earned my wings

August 1, 2006 is a date I will always proudly remember. It will always make me smile and warm my heart and bring the sweetest tears to my eyes. On that day, my 1st surrogacy adventure came to an end as little S______ was born. That day I earned my wings as one of God's angels on earth. Happy Birthday S______!

Much Love,
