I am on my 3ird pregnancy and have 2 healthy children (ages 3 and 6) and this time I am having twins. My SIL can't have kids (long story) and has wanted them for a long time (she has been married 10 years and they have been trying to start a family ever since).
She has asked me to surrogate for her a year go, I said no. Now she asked (seriously, not joking) if she could have one of the babies. She doesn't get what the big deal would be since me and DH would still have a baby ("you weren't trying for twins" she said), she would have a baby and the kids would still be close.
This woman is coo coo for coco puffs. First she asks me to surrogate for her, then she asks for one of my babies????
Many of you are suggesting they adopt
They could afford to foster to adopt, which is basically free, but you wait a long time for a baby and then, often, the baby goes back to the parents, so they don't want to do that. But as far as regular adoption, they don't have the money for it.
Some have suggested hiring a paid surrogate, they can't afford that either.
