Thinking about being a surrogate

Well, I wanted to wait to do this until after having another kiddo or two of my own but now that won't be happening anytime soon (that's a whole other post LOL) so its been on my mind again lately.

Has anyone done this before or does anyone know a bit about it? I would definately be a gestational surrogate since my son's condition is most likely genetic. I'm just afraid that most agencies would reject me because of that altogether though.... even though nothing genetic could be passed on to a babe that wasn't biologically mine, kwim? Anyway, I would probably also really like to be a surrogate for a gay couple. So I guess I'm just looking for a good agency to start with. If none will accept me, I guess then I'll have to go about it independently but I figured an agency would be a lot easier.

Any suggestions?

Re: Thinking about being a surrogate

Thanks.

I emailed a few people last night that I found online that are looking for a GS (gestational surrogate). I know it will probably take awhile to find a good match but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Re: Thinking about being a surrogate

honestly, im not saure what to tell you, id talk to rhi, and oh crap, another mama here was /is a surro mama, too, besides tangy. she did it the way its biologically her child, so thats different than what you can do, so i dont know whether talking to her would help nor not. two or thre mama at the hc forums are surro mamas, i know that, maybe go hang out there and see what you can ask about?
i also know rhi was trying to start up some sort of helping agency, at least in indiana or whatever, i think thats where she is, lol, so maybe she could hook you up with one that could give you more info, etc??
