Hey, Olivia. It is amazing that you are going to have a baby through surrogacy. I totally agree with you. Research is very important here. It is important that we choose a reliable clinic for ourselves. Surrogacy isn’t something one should ever feel weird about. You did not choose it for yourself. Infertility is very common and it can happen to anyone. When your child grows us, I think you should tell him how he was born and not hide anything. I have a son who I had through surrogacy from Ukraine. I have decided to tell him everything little by little as he grows up. You shouldn’t hide or alter any information like this from your child. They deserve to know. It would be a shock to them if they get to know about it from a different source. Good luck.
