    Ashley And Dave - "It just all finally makes sense."

    Today, on the season finale of Hope Works, we’re wrapping up the season by introducing you to two of the proudest parents we know, Ashley and Dave. When we first met Ashley and Dave, they’d already been through some of the toughest days of their lives. They’d hit mountain after mountain on their journey to becoming parents, and it never seemed to get easier. They tried doctor after doctor. They flew from state to state meeting new fertility teams, trying new treatments. It was terribly hard, but they never lost hope. They’re now the incredible parents of a beautiful boy. With all that they went through, how did they stay hopeful? And what was it like to finally welcome their son into the world? Press play and let them tell you!

    Remember last season's episode with Chelsie, a surrogate in Wisconsin? Today, on a brand new episode of Hope Works, we are thrilled to introduce you to Michal, one of the dads who Chelsie helped to become a father.

    Michal is a dad from the Czech Republic who flew overseas with his husband, David, to meet their surrogate, Chelsie, over five years ago. Today, thanks to help from Chelsie, Michal and his husband are the proud dads of two beautiful twin girls. Michal always knew he wanted to be a dad, but before he met David, he had no idea how he’d become a father. And he certainly didn’t know that a mom in Wisconsin would totally change their lives forever. What was it like to build a family with help from across the ocean? Press play to hear Michal share his story!

    You can follow Michal and his husband David on Instagram at @dvatatove where they share their growing family. And listen to Chelsie's episode to hear her side of the story!

Cute and relatable

I love this podcast so far! I have been a surrogate before. I carried twins for my intended fathers and delivered a health boy and girl in November 2017. I am now gearing up to transfer a baby girl for my amazing new international intended parents. Surrogacy is so beautiful and I am so glad I came across this podcast!
