I hate to have to share this, but this woman has broken so many hearts and I know we "the infertile community" are even more susceptible to this fraud than anyone else. I want the word out so that everyone knows she exists and has done this to so many couples.
She fooled Blue and I for 24 hours… We were preparing for IVF2.1 and it just
seemed like fate that she contacted S.I.F about a baby girl. Even Blue got excited and that makes me sadder
than anything else. Luckily for us both
S.I.F and I got a strange feeling pretty early on and followed our guts, which
led us to a trail of broken hearts, fake babies, and fraud that cannot be
prosecuted by law.
After this article was published another family contacted S.I.F about “Jessie
Lynn”. This family spent months “with”
her, their story is the most heartbreaking I’ve heard. Jessie encouraged them to decorate a nursery,
asked them to send her pictures of the things they bought for their new baby
girl, even encouraged them to tell their 3 year old that they were about to
have a sibling… Truly awful person.
So, please don’t harden your hearts to the magic of adoption by accident
(because it really does happen sometimes!) but be careful and guard your hearts
because not everyone in the world is kind.
