Kennerly Family 2017 .jpg

Through the extraordinary bond we share with our surrogate, Cat, and her family, my husband Wes and I are the parents of beautiful twins, a boy and a girl. I hold an MA in Clinical Psychology and I’ve worked for 14 years in finance and investor relations, and my husband is a US Navy fighter pilot. Our journey with infertility was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through, hands down. I’ve always been a perfectionist, and before this, there was nothing I had set out to do that I wasn’t able to accomplish. In infertility and multiple pregnancy losses, I felt like my body had failed me, us, and the family we were trying to build. There was a lot of pain and shame built into all of that loss, but ultimately it has pushed me to connect with others in similar situations. I credit this experience with helping me discover my true purpose—to partner with Cat and our amazing community of experts, in guiding aspiring mothers through their surrogacy journey.

My husband Silas and I have two beautiful children, and when I watched my sister struggle with infertility, I felt that it wasn’t fair. How could this thing that had come so easily to me be denied to others? Volunteering a year of my life to be a surrogate was a call from my faith, and one of those moments where you just “know that you know that you know.” I also learned so much from drawing on the support of a community of friends who understood what we were doing and came alongside to help us. I feel so fortunate that the relationship between our two families is such a powerful one—I’ve followed many career paths in my life, but the chance to start a project in partnership with Mary is one I’m passionate and excited about. I believe we can do great things together!

We feel honored to share your journey with you! 

Mary + Cat
