A True Surrogacy Story – Don’t Let This Happen to You!
“When I was new to surrogacy, having just become a gestational surrogate, I almost made a horrible decision. I was so eager to get started and become a surrogate mother that I almost put my family into a devastating situation.
It was only because I had chosen the right surrogacy lawyer for myself that I didn’t sign a horrible contract that I would have regretted.
I met a wonderful local couple who we seemed to have a lot in common with. We decided to proceed with the surrogacy, and I began to take the tests their clinic required as our lawyers put together our contracts.
After their lawyer had submitted the final contract to my lawyer, my lawyer called me to let me know there was a tiny error that needed to be fixed.
It seemed like a typo.
The contract they gave us said that a DNA test would be completed after the surrogate pregnancy, upon the baby’s birth. If it was found that either the intended father or the intended mother were not the biological parents of the child, then the intended parents had the option of walking away from the child, and the surrogate (me) would be responsible for paying back all fees associated with the entire surrogacy, including the couple’s attorney fees, clinic fees, agency fees, and every other expense for the entire journey, and would also be responsible for the child.
Now, that type of wording was pretty standard in a contract, to protect the intended parents in case the surrogate breaks the rules and gets pregnant with her own child, but there was just one problem: the couple was using an egg donor.
The intended mother could not possibly be found to be the genetic mother.
We let them and their attorney know that there was an error here, but they all refused to make the changes. My lawyer told me that this left a loophole in the contract so that the intended parents would be allowed to reject a less-than-perfect child.
When I mentioned this to my intended parents, they just kept saying that that wasn’t what they intended, yet no one would fix it. After two months of arguing about it, I finally walked away from the arrangement.
I could not put my family at risk like that.
In the end, they never even paid for all the testing that their clinic required. I was left with bills of almost $2,000, and my lawyer never got his fees. My lawyer worked for me pro-bona, and eventually recovered my expenses from the intended parents. I was so glad to have had a lawyer who was able to find that typo, and potentially save my family from a devastating situation. I can’t imagine what would have happened if I had signed those papers.”
