APPLETON (NBC26) — Lacey Popke likes to say she has two moms: the one who gave her life and the one who raised her.
“I was told that I was a surrogate baby because my mom couldn’t have her own kids,” she said. “It turns out that her eggs were even rotten.“
Almost 28 years ago, her mother Annette’s cousin, Rachel Tolmacs, offered to carry a child for her.
“The one thing my mom always wanted was a little girl,” said Popke. “And she hoped and hoped and hoped. When I finally came out as a girl, she was so excited.“
