Welcome to my blog. I’m Robyn. I was born in October ’74 (so I don’t have to keep upping my age every year.) I’m married to Kris, my military guy that married me, a pagan hippie. I have 4 children, 3 living, I work fulltime as an IT business analyst (aka – computer dork) and I have worked very hard to get out from under obesity. This blog was originally about the weight loss journey, however now it is about my life. After having lost my 2nd child, Anily, during her full term delivery after a perfectly normal pregnancy, I got involved in a group called “Missing Grace”. That is a group that helps people through pregnancy and infant loss, infertility, and adoption. Through this group I found an agency that helped me to do something about all the infertility I saw around me every day. I signed up as a gestational carrier (surrogate) for a local couple.  The Twin boys were born in March of 2009.  As my blog continues, it is now in the aftermath of the surrogacy.  I’m working to re-lose those last 20 pounds and then who knows.  Maybe another surrogacy?  Maybe that tummy tuck I’ve been dreaming of?  I guess we’ll just have to see.   In the meantime, I’ll blog about my life. My stillbirth, parenting, weightloss, maintaining, working, surrogacy, whatever else happens, life.

  1. Hi Robyn,

    I just read your blog and I like your writing.

    I’d like to propose something to you – please send me an email so I can give you the details, I think you might be interested.

    PS: You can see my email when you are logged in to the “Manage -> Comments” section of your blog. Please don’t share it publicly as I don’t like spam. Look forward to hear from you.

  2. Hi Robyn,

    I like reading your blog. I think it is really a noble thing to do – to carry a baby for an infertile couple who couldn’t do it for themselves. It’s such a great gift to be able to get pregnant naturally. I think many people don’t understand surrogacy, unless they are faced with an ‘infertile’ situation. And they wouldn’t understand why a surro would do what they do either, until they themselves need a surro mom. But I’m so sure all IPs out there are very thankful to their surros who have made their dreams of becoming biological parents come true.

    Thank you for doing this.

  3. Robyn I’d love to talk to you – can you please email me? I’m starting a surrogacy journey and so excited yet the first test came out negative – I’m sooooo bummed and would love to talk to a like-minded person… hope to talk soon.
