The long road to Lola | The Seattle Times

Faced with a painful medical condition that threatened her fertility, Gloria Chueca Puerto-Mendoza didn’t have the luxury of time. Would you spend four years, and all your savings, without a partner to help?

Photographer/videographer Erika Schultz and I followed Gloria and Lola’s story over five months, filming their journey from the NICU to their home in Bremerton. And I wrote the text story for print to go with our video story and images.

Full story: How far would you go to be a mother? This young woman had to make a sudden decision.
