"Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things." "I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
— Lewis Carroll
Jennifer White is the Co-Director of New Mexico Surrogacy. She has her B.S. in Justice and Public Safety. She’s on the paralegal committee for AARTA and is the brand new chair of the Social Media and PR Committee for SEEDS. She’s married to Ryan, a Lt. Colonel in the US Air Force, has a daughter, Katy (12), and has two small and crazy dogs named Pickles and Olive. Oh and she has a playground in Amersham, England named after her because she spearheaded the fundraising for it (yeah…she’s that awesome).
Why she started working in surrogacy
“I worked with Ellen Trachman for years (oh, and I've known her since the moment she was born) on the legal side of surrogacy. We realized that there was a huge need for compassionate care in this area and a spark was set."
Why she’s passionate about working in this industry
“I am in infertility survivor. Our daughter is an every day miracle. I understand the pain of wanting a child so badly and it not happening the way you dream it will. Gestational Surrogates are angels on earth that help dreams come true and I love being part of both sides of the process.”
How she’d use her surrogacy compensation
“I'm a saver, so I'd likely save it. But I also love to travel so would probably use some on a luxurious trip to somewhere exotic.”
What kind of intended parents she’d want to work with
"I have to admit that I fall in love with every Intended Parent I talk to. I can't remember the last time I made it through a consult without thinking: ‘If I could be your surrogate, I would!’ Sometimes I even say it out loud by accident!”
