  1. Traci, Thank you so much for the information. I have been in contact with Ashlee and she is making the process very easy to understand. I am so glad asked for help on this forum. Julio
  2. Hello Traci, Thank you for all the information! The wife and I have been torn about going to Kiev, Ukraine. We have heard of a few agencies that have been around for 20yrs but we rather stay local where we can monitor our babies progress. Would you happen to know of any agencies that are affordable with great reviews? We feel as tho every time we type in affordable surrogacy agencies into Google we always get overseas or the same 1 or 2 agencies. Either Circle or world wide surrogacy, we are willing to travel if that will help our chances. I am afraid of the whole process and forgetting sonething.. think an agency doing everything is the way to go.
  3. Hello Everyone, I am new to the forum and wanted to ask a few questions about surrogacy in/around NY area. A little bit about our situation, Me and my wife have been married for 6 years and together for 12. We had always put off children because I wanted her to finish her masters and I wanted to save for a house to raise our children in. Five years ago my wife began feeling exhausted and out of breath doing normal everyday duties, because of her age (28 at the time) many healthcare professionals stated it was all mental and maybe needed rest and or vitamins. Three years ago we met with an amazing pulmonary specialist who diagnosed her with Pulmonary Hypertension which is a disease that affects the lungs and has a very high mortality rate. Luckily we caught it early on and with the medication she is currently on it's allowing her to resume daily activities, she still has difficulties walking long distances or up stairs but she is able to cope. The down side of pulmonary hypertension and the medication is my wife will never be able to carry children safely, She would be risking her health and the health of our fetus. I am a NYC Firefighter and unfortunately my insurance does not cover surrogacy in NY nor is surrogacy legal in NY so we were left with paying out of pocket to create our own embryos (20k). We are looking for affordable surrogacy agencies in our area. I have looked into three and they all range between 80-100k with our own embryo. I understand this will be an expensive journey but I would like to keep the mental and financial burden to a minimum especially for my beautiful wife. I have also looked into overseas surrogacy in Ukraine but still need more information and feedback. Please Help
