Hi there ladies! I was wondering if any of you can give me advice on something. My BFF and I were talking the other day and she told me that she would have a baby for me with her egg and my DH's swimmers . I have a really bad case of PCOS and i do not O anymore . My question is can any of you help me or give me the legal advice about how we would go about doing this. I know she would have to give up her parental rights and I would adopt the baby . She is married as well and has 2 boys her self , so I know her husband would have to sign something saying hes not the father . I'm just not sure how this would all work. If any of you have advice that would be great!

Thanks for your time.

I'm not sure exactly how that would work, but I would assume you'd need to check out the laws of your state first and maybe contact an attorney that specializes in this sort of thing to walk you through the steps.

Welcome to the group, by the way, and good luck!!

It sounds more like surrogacy with a donated egg that adoption. You might check with the surrogacy board too. There are different laws on that kind of thing. But WHAT an AWESOME friend you have! I hope it all works for you and you have your baby very soon!

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

Thanks so much for your feedback ladies! I know she is the best friend ,other than my sis who has PCOS as well and has been ttc for 7 yrs . I cant believe she is willing to do this for me. I will contact a lawyer and see if they can help me figure this out.

In the surrogacy board I got one reply and she is having a baby for her SIL and she said she has to give up her prenatal rights at birth and then her SIL will adopt the baby. I think that is what we would have to do .

I am waiting to hear from my DH about what he thinks about this. I think he will be fine with it . He is in the Navy and currently deployed ,so getting in contact with him can be hard. I can only email him.

Thanks for the welcome and I wish you all the best in your adoption process !

Still haven't heard from him as of yet! I hate submarines sometimes lol I hope some time in the next week he will be able to email me. I did look up the laws in WA state about surrogacy and it is legal for both types. So we will be able to do the traditional one . I have never really talked to DH about this before ,cause I always thought I would be able to have another child of our own. Now that this is in reach I am happy . I hope he goes with it . I will for sure KUP!
