Surrogacy's been coldly and unjustifiably called baby buying and baby selling. But those insensitive terms do not tell the inspiring tale of a couple fiercely wanting to become parents. "A Gay Couple's Experience with Surrogacy: Intended Fathers" is the moving true story of a gay couple's decision to have their child through a surrogate mother. With humour and emotion, the author traces their intense experience from the initial decision to have a child through surrogacy on through the entire pregnancy and birth. "A Gay Couple's Journey Through Surrogacy" chronicles this couple's no-holds-barred account of the emotional toll, the legal matters, the financial concerns, and the ultimate fulfilment of parenting a child. "A Gay Couple's Journey Through Surrogacy" reveals the author's answers to these questions: why surrogacy over adoption? which type of surrogacy - traditional or gestational? what were the issues when choosing a surrogate? how much does surrogacy cost? what living expenses are included in the cost? what are the emotional and financial reasons that surrogates choose to bear another's child? what are the pitfalls in choosing surrogacy? what are the legal issues - what to beware and what to consider "A Gay Couple's Journey Through Surrogacy" is a touching memoir that reveals the challenges that face gay and lesbian couples who may be considering either adoption or surrogacy.
