High school friend, 43, surrogate for classmate’s baby

Charla Jones for the Toronto StarAfter nearly a decade of infertility, a stretch of heartbreak during which Erin and her husband, Jason, had heard no so often as they tried to conceive children, this new hope staggered them.

It took six months after the wedding for the Toronto couple to digest Shelagh McKee's offer [to be a surrogate] as a viable option. By then, the owners of a small Christmas decor business had spent about $100,000 over a decade on fertility treatments and procedures, a substantial sum for the pair, who are not wealthy and diligently saved their money.

Erin summoned the nerve to email McKee, a mother of three, to ask if she was still serious about surrogacy. I didn’t want to phone her and put her on the spot, Erin says. McKee's typed reply came in block letters: ABSOLUTELY.

McKee is due in early August. The baby is the biological child of Erin and Jason (they asked their surname not be used to protect their privacy). The baby is being carried in the womb of a 43-year-old who says her friends are good people who deserve happiness.

It's probably the most powerful infertility reversal system ever developed, and currently the best-selling e-book of its kind on the entire Web!

After 14 years of trial, error and experimentation, I finally discovered the answer to infertility and developed a fool-proof system to getting pregnant the natural way - no drugs, or surgery necessary.

It took a lot of research to get to where I am today, to know exactly what works and what doesn't. Yes, after desperate trial and error, countless of useless treatments, disappointments and agony, a simple holistic system opened the door to my new and much brighter life of motherhood.

I was also excited to see that my other infertility related symptoms had diminished. After years of waiting I was finally free from Infertility! I have become a proud mother of two.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
