No longer do individuals or couples have to resign themselves to being childless. The intense drive to become a parent is understandable, but what motivates a woman to carry another person’s child in her womb, endure the rigors of pregnancy and the intense pain of childbirth only to hand the baby over to people she may never see again? Surrogate Stories explores the realities of one the most intimate relationships: that between a surrogate mother and her intended parents.
We follow the unique journeys of first-time surrogate Gina, mother of four, who is pregnant with twins for another couple; Kelly, mother of two, who is entering into her third surrogacy at the age of 25; and Glenda and Bonnie, mother/daughter surrogates who share an unusual bond. We meet the intended parents and surro-babies born to these women, learn who hires a surrogate and why, and delve into the fascinating world of Surrogate Stories.
