Many Missouri couples may find themselves struggling to find a way to have children of their own. In decades past, the alternatives may have seemed limited, but in today’s world, there are many options. One of these options is called a surrogacy agreement.
In recent years, several celebrities have attempted to help change the stigma that was once attached to surrogacy. It used to be believed by many that women who offered their services to carry a child were doing so for the money in an attempt to relieve personal financial woes. Quite to the contrary, it has now been shown that one’s financial status shouldn’t always determine her ability or willingness to be an adequate surrogate.
There are now many agencies that might be able to help a couple chose a healthy, stable woman to carry their child. One of these women, a mother from Missouri, explains that she felt called to help couples that desperately wanted a child, but had been unsuccessful on their own. Other surrogates prefer to help same-sex couples with many being in same-sex marriages themselves.
If a couple is considering a surrogacy agreement in the hopes of having a happy, healthy baby, they may not know where to begin. One step to take might be to contact an experienced attorney. An attorney can help protect a client’s legal rights throughout the surrogacy process and ensure that offers of surrogacy are legitimate. With a knowledgeable lawyer on the team, couples can begin to enjoy the process and look forward to the day their baby is born.
