Finding A Surrogate

My recent guest  on the radio show In Search of Fertility was Sandra Lippard of Family Forward Surrogacy.  For those who need a surrogate, it is not always easy to find one.  Family Forward Surrogacy can help make that happen for Americans and for women from other countries.  The agency recently appeared on French TV.  The French TV crew arrived to spotlight the arrival of French women who are coming to America for a surrogate.  In France it is illegal to use a surrogate.  Once their babies are brought home they are not even recognized as French citizens. In the United States not all states allow surrogacy, but at least the baby is recognized as a US citizen.


Gay Couple Child Question

Legalizing gay marriages means the relatives are clamoring for grandchildren.  Gay male couples are either adopting or using surrogates.  The New York Times recently quoted one eager grandmother to be as planning for her son and his groom to each donate their sperm to a surrogate.  She was being equitable and wanted each of their genetic lines to continue.  She also was unabashedly promoting her baby plans during their wedding. Unfortunately, her son doesn’t even want children.  But there is always the honeymoon to try and convince them.
