The birth of Fernando on April 28, 2016 changed the status of Jeri’s Couple from Intended Parents to simply “Parents”. It sounds simple and on the surface it may seem so. But it was a trek of 13 years of bumps and many bruises that finally led them to Building Families and the comfort of their Surrogate Family.
Jeri, Terry and their kiddos were so moved by the experience that they have adopted Fernando and his parents into their family. In Jeri’s words, “I have truly become a part of their family as they have become a part of mine. I have yet another wonderful sister!”. To mark their bond, Jeri & the new Mom, Naiara, had matching “sister” tattoos done.
