I'm so excited but maybe prematurely. My husband and I were looking into adoption recently. We have had 4 surrogacy offers. The 1st is my friend who is 40 (not ideal). The second is my sister who also has PCOS, thus more likely to miscarry, although she has had 2 babies and no miscarriages, and is 36(not ideal). Then my mother who is 67 (far from ideal)! But now a neighbor has volunteered. She is very regular and fertile, has had 2 girls and no miscarriages and is only 33! Her offer was over drinks the other night. I sent her an email today to ask if she would really consider this. Until now we never considered it an option due to $. We've spent a lot with 6 clomid cycles and 5 invitros. Without an ideal surrogate it wasn't worth the risk. Adoption would cost $25,000. We'd spend at least that on a surrogate pregnancy and could be left with nothing if she didn't get pregnant. I hate to put a price tag on having a child but unfortunately our funds have run out. Have any of you seriously looked into surrogacy? What were your findings and experiences? I'm scared and hesitant but hopeful for one more chance to have a biological child.
