After 5 years of trying to conceive a baby through 8 unsuccessful rounds of IVF using her own eggs and donor eggs and with unexplained infertility and possible autoimmune problems, multiple surgeries and a million different medications, Ellenor and her husband decided to stop wasting time and money on things that weren’t working for them. They jumped into surrogacy in the Ukraine with Lotus and were extremely lucky to fall pregnant with their now 12 week old daughter on their second transfer. She was born 5 weeks early and spent 22 days in NICU. Ellenor has  an ongoing relationship with her Ukraine surrogate.
