Well if I had my choice, I'd prefer biological. It's the cheapest option, I get to experiance pregnancy and breastfeed not the mention there's no legal disputes over who's child it is.

Terry was about 3 and half pounds when the photo was taken, and what he has is a normal sized pacifier. Nice size comparison isnt it? lol

I don't think I can answer this question as I did not experience fertility problems.  I think I would first try to have a biological child and avoid the legal roadblocks and hazards that may come up with the other two choices.  With that said, having children was never something I felt I couldn't live without doing so I may have just opted to not have any.  It's hard to know.

No way! I've never seen a green paci that looks like that.

And he must have been tiny! How old is he now?

 knowing what I do about adoption (and surrogacy is a close 2nd), if I was unable to have biological children, I would remain childless.
