Rhonda is a retired, two-time surrogate from the Central Coast of California. She is married to her very best friend and together, they have two beautiful, intelligent kids.
Rhonda has her AA in American Sign Language and is also an aspiring writer, who has written various interest/opinion/informative articles for newspapers as well as All Things Surrogacy. She has finished the fourth (or fifth!) draft of her first novel and has recently received its edited version. She is currently cleaning up the final draft to attempt to have it published in the very near future! Aside from being a mom and writer, Rhonda loves gardening and adores her chickens! She’s also a history nerd who loves to travel, camp, hike, kayak, and read.
Rhonda began her surrogacy journey in 2011. After a few bumps along the road and some momentum-halting obstacles, she delivered two healthy and beautiful twin girls for an incredibly loving and kind same-sex couple from Los Angeles, in 2013. They have become a part of one another’s family and see each other as often as they can.
In 2015, Rhonda delivered a handsome, blue-eyed baby boy into the grateful arms of his mommy, daddy, and big brother, who reside in London, England. They have maintained friendly communications and exchange stories and pictures several times a year.
Rhonda considers surrogacy to have been one of the greatest experiences and achievements of her life and would love to help another woman experience the gift of making someone’s dream a reality.
She asserts that there are many life lessons to be learned throughout every journey and says,
“Surrogacy is one of the most kind and giving acts we can perform for another human being. You haven’t known true, organic, unfiltered giving until you have seen the love and awe in the eyes of a parent when they hold their little one for the very first time.”
