  • I know there are groups on here regarding this subject. I'd suggest you join one of those groups and ask questions as then you'll be sure to find many women who have experience with this =)

  • I know a woman who has been a surrogate mother twice. Gave birth to twins both times. I dont think she sees the kids much now. She just had it in her mind that they were NOT her kids and she was okay with that. She is such an amazing woman. I will ask her for some information. Also as the above poster stated there should be some groups on here about this subject. Best of luck to you!!

  • sometimes it doesnt work out so good. sometimes the parents say they will let a person have pictures and such but then they dont. kind of sad. i know there is a person on cafemom like that.
