When the Intended parent and Surrogate get involved in the process they normally hear two entirely different comments from friends, family, and strangers.
The Surrogates hear:
Your going to build a family for someone.
Your going to give the gift of life.
You are so special for doing that for someone.
And you get paid - what a bonus.
The Intended Parents hear:
Isn't that expensive?
How are you coming up with the money?
It seems so unnatural does it really work?
Do you really need more children?
Why don't you adopt?
What is so important about your DNA?
Is she going to keep the baby?
The baby is not really yours.
Aren't you playing God?
Some people just aren't supposed to have children.
Aren't you worried about the surrogate doing drugs?
Aren't you just using some poor women?
Aren't you being selfish?
Maybe, you should just get a puppy. That will cure everything.
I am sure that I have missed a bunch. Please add your thoughts in the comment section.
