need some suggestion?
Hello everyone. I want to share my story with you all. I hope this will help other aspiring parents avoid making the mistakes I made. I had heard a lot of great things about surrogacy. So, when we decided to have a child, we automatically decided to go for this option. We already knew I couldn't carry a child. I had a heart condition that made it impossible. We started searching for different surrogacy clinics. Our first mistake was to settle for the most economical option instead of the best one. We went to Peru. There we got in touch with a private surrogate. Everything went by smoothly. However, two weeks before delivery, she told us that she had decided to keep the baby. There was nothing we could do. According to the law, she was free to make that decision. Now we are back at square one.

Hello, I know how angry you and your spouse would be. Well, can you name the clinic or any middle party which was involved in the process? As far as I have heard through some colleagues, that when they went through the surrogacy, they signed a proper contract between the surrogate and the couple themselves. She was not paid completely until the baby was not delivered. This is a very unfair act that she showed. If she wasn’t sure to give the baby, why did she said yes for carrying the baby for 9 months? This is against the law, she is not completely the biological mother of the child.
