On Shady Grove Fertility’s Facebook page 12,000 participants gather to share their experiences and offer advice. Well, one couple, Marc and Andrea had a very long and difficult journey that happily ended almost two years ago with the birth of their twins. Andrea was active on the page from the start and was able to relate with so many other patients and patients to-be with similar questions and concerns. One of the women Andrea met on the page was Sandi. After realizing they lived close to each other the ladies decided to meet for lunch and found that besides the topic of fertility, they had so much in common. Soon Andrea’s husband Marc and Sandi’s husband Phil were included for a double date.
Almost three years ago Andrea and Marc received the best news: Andrea’s latest round of IVF was successful and she was pregnant with twins. Andrea and Marc wanted deeply to share this joy with their close friends Sandi and Phil.
Only three months pregnant, Andrea and Marc decided that they would help Sandi and Phil any way they could. When Sandi and Phil shared that they would require a gestational carrier, Marc and Andrea already had a solution: Andrea would be Sandi’s surrogate.
Now, with their own beautiful babies turning two this February, Marc and Andrea are getting ready to give Sandi and Phil the best gift ever: twin babies of their own.
The Shady Grove Fertility Family is so excited to welcome Sandi and Phil’s babies in 2014!
