shady surrogacy agencies exist, intended parents beware!!
Yesterday the New York Times carried a story about a Mexican surrogacy agency that took intended parents money, but failed to deliver on it promises.
Many points illustrated in the story are vital for all intended parents. First, if you are looking to save costs, think long and hard about going outside of California or the United States. Second, be certain you know and properly investigate your agency and potential surrogate. Assure that they have professionals running the business who have great reputations and all is legally correct. Thankfully, in California, there is a regulatory scheme that can prevent much of the harm shown in this story.
