When Kacy was 24, she volunteered as a “Big Sister” to Inez and saw her once a week until she was 18. The two remained in touch after their time in Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and Kacy adopted a son and Inez had 2 children of her own.
Kacy wanted to have a second baby, but her attempts to get pregnant were not successful and decided surrogacy was going to cost too much. She and her husband had given up on the idea until Inez offered to be her surrogate. 9 months later, Inez gave birth to Kacy's twin boys. Kacy says their families are very close and their children consider each other cousins.
"I just want people to know how important mentorship is. It can bring about beautiful things," Kacy shares.
"Big Sister" Kacy says when Inez offered to carry a baby for her she was shocked and did not think it was a real offer, and still today she is in awe of what generous and caring thing Inez did for her and her family.
"It warms my heart seeing them," Inez says of Kacy's twins.
