MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE
We had a dream -- we wanted a baby. We knew we couldn't have one on our own. I had a hysterectomy. We found Kathy and Greg and Surrogacy Specialists of America, LLC agency, and they helped make our dream come true.
We met with Greg and Kathy on a Saturday afternoon in May 1995. They explained everything in great detail and answered our hundreds of questions. They were very understanding and patient with us. We talked a lot on the phone for the next couple of weeks, and then we decided to go for it. They told us of a surrogate that we might be interested in. So we went to Houston and met her. We thought she was the perfect person to help make us a mommy and daddy.
In August we began the medical procedure. Then we found out that we had a baby due in March. We were a very big part of the pregnancy. We went to doctor appointments even though she lived in another state. We saw our baby three times on sonograms. And we were all in the delivery room the night she was born.
Kathy and Greg stood by us and were there every step of the way from start to finish, and we still keep in touch. They never once faltered or let us down. They supported us as well as our surrogate and made what could have been a very uncomfortable situation a delightful experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Our little girl just turned two, and she is wonderful, perfect from the top of her pretty curly haired head to the bottom of her adorable little toes. Thank you, Kathy and Greg, for making "Dreams come True."

A PERFECT MATCH WITH SURROGATE
I guess first off, thank you so much for the perfect match with our surrogate. It was such a pleasure to have her as the one to carry my children. She did such a great job and took great care of herself. Also, a big thank you to you for having this agency for people like us that need help. I don't think this would have ever happened if it were not for you and Donna. You have brought lots of joy to our family. We appreciate everything. I will send you pictures soon.

A SURROGATE SAYS THANK YOU
I want to thank you for all that you have done for me since I have started with your association. You set me up with two wonderful couples. I couldn't be more pleased to have worked with both of them. Thanks for the beautiful flowers you sent to the hospital too.
Thanks again for everything,
DONOR'S ARE SPECIAL
Thanks for lunch on Friday and also the gift. I had a great time meeting other donors. Everyone is so nice. Kathy, you can almost call yourself a miracle worker. You keep telling the donors how special we are, but I think that it is you above all that is special. It takes someone with a very big heart to do what you do. I'm really glad I met you and I'm honored to be able to call you friend.
AN EFFORTLESS MATCHING PROCESS
Chad and I both agree that we feel so good about our decision to go with you. You have made the finding a surrogate matching process so effortless. We are comparing our meeting yesterday to what could have been months of screening and questions and heartache, just to get to the point where we cay say - YES we are comfortable proceeding with this arrangement. It may be silly to say, but I think that we really connected with Sherrie. I feel like she is the very caring and open person that I-- we were hoping for. Thank you so much. We look forward to seeing you again.
Brenda and Chad
HONEST AND CARING TO SURROGATES
I have been working with Kathy Stern and SSA about four years as a surrogate.
I have always been satisfied with the way Kathy handles all aspects of my surrogacy arrangements. She is a wonderful mediator when or if anything arises that I am not sure how to handle. Kathy is an honest and very caring person and I am very pleased with my experiences with her and SSA.
SSA OFFERS GREAT SUPPORT
I Wanted to give you some feedback regarding the support meeting. To tell you the truth at first I really didn't know what to expect and I had the mentality that I wouldn't get anything from it...but I REALLY enjoyed it and found it to be VERY helpful. It's nice to be able to talk to other people going through the same things you are. My husband and my family are very good to me...but it's different talking with others that are actually going through the motions. They all had a lot of input on questions that I had...and they were very helpful in many ways. I look forward to the next one and want to say THANKS for having such a great support system in place for us...It REALLY does help.
