    Christina,
    A girl I went to highschool with is currently a surrogate for a couple that she has never met. I follow her blog and it really truly is an amazing story...she is absouletly in love with the path she has chosen. Just thought I'd share that! :wink:

    Thanks! I've had a friend and a cousin say they would do it for us, but it may have been just to be nice. Who knows if they would really do it once we're ready. That really is a tremendously giving thing to do.
