Adoption in this country has a boat load of problems like the expense.a lot of hard to place children to adopt and the easiness of birth mothers(and fathers being able to change their minds many months after the child is placed. What a stab in the heart to the adoptive parents.

First I want to thank you for your reply. Second, I made a mistake. I was a traditional surrogate. The movie is about gestational. I would love to share my story with others. I do think this is a wonderful gift to give a couple or person who are unable to get pregnant and deliver a child the "usual" way. I think that adoption is an option for some but anymore I see that having a whole lot of problems which is for another topic forum.

I understand the "need" for the film. I know there are risks and miracles, living in a country where adoption means having to accept a child chosen for you... I'd rather be a surrogate for someone.

I was a gestational(my egg) twice and none of these issues came up during my experience. I did not do it for the money,just the blessing of giving a couple a child that they could not have on their own due to medical issues. The most important thing that has to be remembered and watched is to do the surrogacy(both sides) carefully and check all parties involved very carefully. If a woman is doing this for the money primarily to me that is a red flag. Likewise if the couple is doing it so she doesn't want the bother of being pregnant or afraid of losing her figure that is another red flag. I hope this movie shows the positive side of surrogacy not just the negative.

Very interesting and enlightening. I like the part about Foster kids and adoption as good way to make a family. There are enough out there that need a good home,
