Surrogate means substitute, and a way of assisted reproduction (ART). Normally surrogacy is a method for couples, who are not capable of giving birth to their own child due to numerous medical and health reasons such as infertility status of woman, repeated miscarriages, absence of uterus and some other medical problems like High Blood Sugar, BP, and kidney and heart disorders. But in present scenario, gay and lesbian relationships are also into existence and these relationships are considered legal in the eyes of law, so gay couples also wish to start their families with the help of gay surrogacy programs.
The gay, lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender community has also searched to surrogacy as a mean of commencing a family. On the other hand, some countries and states restrict surrogacy to married couples only. In the US, homosexual marriages are not legal, making this a hard barrier to cross. Adoption laws also fluctuate relating to same gender couples, which spaces more complexity on couples selecting surrogacy when many situations deem surrogacy and adoption to be very parallel. Though, surrogacy is a beautiful substitute for gay and lesbian couples as it permits at least one of the prospective parents to have a natural or genetic connection with the baby. Becoming a proud parent is an around the clock job for lifetime. Everyone who wants to be a parent should get ready and arrange this very cautiously, thoroughly and carefully. Parenting is a conclusion you take for whole life and parenting comes with a whole lot of duties and responsibilities with it.
