US Surrogate Carrying for an Overseas Parent
What is it like to be a surrogate in the US carrying for a overseas intended parent.  A surrogate with Agency for Surrogacy Solutions shares her experience.

“I can’t thank the Agency 4 Surrogacy Solutions enough for yet another successful surrogacy journey. I feel very blessed and extremely lucky to have met such wonderful people in all my journeys. While the Intended Parents were here we got together for dinner, we all made lasagna, which was amazing and my son and the IP’s daughter got to play. On another day they wanted to tour my shop where we do glass blowing so everyone came to the shop and I gave them a tour. I had one of the guys at the shop make them a beautiful vase for them to take back home, they really enjoyed the tour. On Saturday we went to my sister’s house to meet the rest of my family. It was my niece’s birthday and everyone loved meeting everyone. We definitely spent a lot of time together. They arrived home today and I miss them already. What a journey it has been and truly a wonderful one to say the least!! Thank you so very much for partnering me with such wonderful lovable amazing people!! And thank you for all the support that was given to me during my journey. Thank you so much!! I really love Agency 4 Surrogacy Solutions that is why I recommend you to all my friends that want to do surrogacy, I wouldn’t choose any other. Thank you!”
