This is something I don't know that much about except that more and more people are seeing surrogacy as a definitive alternative when experiencing fertility challenges.
At the time that we were unable to have children a friend of mine did offer to be a surrogate for us. Although the offer was an amazing show of our friendship it was something that i would never have considtered. We personally felt that we did not want to go this route, but at the same time I realise that it may be the only feasible route for others to become parents.

If you have a story about Surrogacy that you would be willing to share with others please let me know. This is a very scary road for some people to follow and knowing that others have done it before and hearing their stories really helps along the way.
