I had the honor of being asked by CNN Headline News to write a short op-ed piece about my experience as a surrogate. I tried to play it cool, but what I really did behind my desk when the email came through was this:
The writing is a little stiffer than my usual gangsta tone, but given the fact that I was writing for OMGNATIONALNEWSY’ALL Headline News, I figured that a little formality was appropriate.
Seriously, though–as you all know, surrogacy is near and dear to my heart. Those of you who’ve been around for a while have seen me rip published news pieces about surrogacy to shreds, so it felt gratifying to be on the writing side of things. Please click over to read, then do me a solid and share the bejeezus out of it: What It’s Like to Be a Surrogate Mother.
For those of you who found my blog through HLNtv.com–welcome. I hope you stick around.

I’ve also written several general information posts about the surrogacy process. You can find those posts under the Surrogacy 101 category.
Finally, you can read eleventythousand posts about my personal surrogacy experiences under the Surrogacy Files category.
Word to your not-my-baby bird, yo.
