To be honest, it doesn't make one lick of difference to me why a person is a surrogate. If their reasons aren't altruistic, I don't have a big problem with it. Like a pp stated, she enjoys being pregnant. I think it sounds like a great deal for everyone. A family gets something they want and a someone gets to be pregnant again. Some people might do it for money. I have a job that I get paid for. I teach high school students. I love it most days. If they took away my paycheck and my summer, you better believe I would be finding something else to do.
NP correcting the wording and taking a few to sit and think instead of lash back irritated. I guess my thing was that just because she likes being pregnant, it didn't take away from what she's doing. That's really not something surrogates like to hear at all.
I AM looking for a new job, lol, and I get paid decent now. I just hate it, so I kinda get what you are saying there...lol Except I don't deal with kids. I deal with adults....all. day.
Mom to many
