Not only am I lucky to be able to help a family grow, I am also lucky to work with Meryl and her team. Meryl has this way of making you feel like her number one priority at all times. She has an experienced and knowledgeable team that are a welcome breath of fresh air and kindness.
The whole process of surrogacy can be overwhelming, especially the first time, not knowing what to expect. But with Meryl and her team I am proud to say it was a wonderful, painless and enjoyable process that created many beautiful memories!
