Erin Boelhower, 33, from Woodstock, Illinois, endured nine IVF transfers and more than 600 injections over the course of three years trying to get pregnant with husband Matthew, 33.
Erin and Matthew were left devastated after suffering a string of miscarriages, but never lost hope that they would one day become parents.
Their dream finally became a reality when Erin’s best friend Rachel Checolinski, 34, gave them the gift of a lifetime and offered to be their surrogate.
In January, two of Erin’s embryos were transferred to Rachel’s uterus. That same month, a test revealed she was pregnant.
The pals spent the next nine months side by side and Erin was at the hospital with Rachel, herself a mother of three, when she went into labor with baby Scottie on September 19.
