I want to be one! I am done having my children, tubes are tied. My kids are 3 and 6. I want to help someone have the dream I do. How do I start? Where do I begin?

  • Well the fact that your tubes are tied is going to be an issue, contact an agency that deals with surragogates! I hope it works out for you what a great gift!
