I came across things I'd already seen, or even my own blog. Then a few friends' blogs and then a French site.
I've been interviewed by a French journalist and then someone wrote a review of my book in French. What I came across tonight seemed to be something new to me. Although as I read further, I realized it was by the French journalist who interviewed me.

For the neophyte forums have cabalistic air. Some seek the perfect IP's or Intended Parents (for parents of intent). Others rely on the days of pastel strips "2WW", that is to say two weeks between ovulation and insemination. Virtual gifts are exchanged. Finally, users will gratify regularly "Surro-angels" (literally an angel having substituted for parents to note), or simply "stork, stork. To that nickname emotional added more technical terms: TS for a traditional surrogate, GS for gestational (IVF). But the word remains the most popular gift. They are those who want it, and those who give. Before finding the ideal parent, surrogate mothers are in perfect portraits. "Heterosexuals' for SoniaCA" near me "Jennifer from Texas. Rihanna Oregon wants them "married or nothing", "magnet" for Kristal or "black or white, straight or gay, American or not" for Katarina Jr. More than the profile for these surrogates, the "donation", "joy brought home," the "right to happiness" prevail."See you on my blog! "Writes MariaSM Profile Daphne * Matched * MI (mother of Intent found a surrogate mother). Because after the interface cherry surrogatemothers.com, trade continued on blogs and social networks. "It is also through Facebook that I made about my book," says Jill Reeder, surrogate mother and author of The Stork's Helpers.The book chronicles the gestation of children to others is published three weeks ago, and already many blogs other surrogates would echo. Twitter also found surrogates like Prmama57, which relays on the platform of micro-blogging information on surrogacy (GPA) and the new notes from his diary online surrogacy. On the forums, the idea is different. Parents of Intent negotiate farm tariffs of gestation (from 15 000 to 40 000 dollars). "I've already been scammed by false surrogates, so I warn you: my first deposit will be light" clearly announces a U.S. Minnesota. A gay couple says Norwegian on the same forum that has gathered 18 000 in 2012, but he is already looking for the perfect surrogate non-smoker and very healthy. The topics on insurance issues for surrogate mothers are also common. How to be covered by his insurance, even if parents want to receive for the baby in another state? The issue of miscarriages and compensation also hold an important place in these debates over trivial. Surrogates for their part, marketers are struggling against the Indian branch of gestation at a lower cost. On the forums, representatives of low-cost agencies encourage parents to opt for an option àà Indian, no home and no huge severance expense.

It recounts the horrors of these plants, "denounces California on his Facebook status.About the blogs is more personal. Kristen just gave birth to Luke and Liam-twins, children of Joe and Ann. Before the couple, Kristen was first surrogate for other parents of intent. After the initial amniocentesis, a child is diagnosed with Down syndrome and the couple asked Kristen to stop pregnancy. The young mother tells this story on his blog. "My goal was also that the surrogate mothers think twice about signing their contract. If I knew how I would feel I would have changed the termination clause of pregnancy, "she says after one year. Jill returns to the birth of the first girl she wore: "I did not cry like my own children, I was just glad it's over." She continues: "At our request to all, the father and the mother of intention are quickly entered the workroom. I wanted to be with her parents immediately after birth but not ruled out either, so we talked about.But in the end I felt a bit neglected by parents, even if at that moment I was so tired that I said nothing. "Child psychiatrists and psychiatrists, including Serge Hefez, have often repeated that "surrogacy is nothing trivial." The intimate story of the pregnancy would be an outlet for surrogacy.

And she adds: "It's also full testimony. I want my own children can read it later and they see how I was able to help someone. "The testimony is also for mothers and women as bloggers. "I wrote my blog to let people know what being a surrogate mother in all honesty," said Jill Reeder. "I attended many forums to find other surrogates and I had seen many blogs, so I wanted to join this community with mine too," recalls Kristen. Mary explains that surrogacy is "a great event," and added: "I wanted to tell all my friends, but as I work, the internet gave me the opportunity to share this experience simply."Beyond the family, these surrogate mothers are choosing to go online to the public. Jill Reeder meant "truth." Mary ensures that Twitter account used to "disseminate information about this practice." Kristen says, "know" she "opened the eyes of many people, including strangers on surrogacy.
