Our surrogate was never pregnant. Took our hearts and our money. Back to square one. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />. Why does this have to be so hard?

Oh no Oh no Oh no!!! Nona that is so terrible. It is beyond me why anyone would do that to another human being. My heart is broken for you and your family.

Dear Nona,
I am so sorry to hear this sad news. Have you reported this woman to the police or at least to surromoms online?

Best, Lenore

It would cost to much in funds to take her to court. I will just be much smarter in agreeing to work with another Surrogate.
She registered under several different names and was coming back on the Surrogacy boards. I didn't have to say a thing. The owners caught her and banned her IP address.
There were beware warnings posted on SMO and SSO about her. And other IPs had been contacted by her. So the warnings have helped.
Sooooo life goes on. I am not out! I am up and at it again. This time I am looking to adopt and a surrogate. Which ever comes first is fine with me. I am not putting all my eggs in one basket anymore. smile

i'm so sorry this happened to you! We found our surrogate through SMO and she's been awesome. We're close to delivering twins now. I don't say this to rub it in god forbid, just know there are lots of wonderful surrogates out there. I'm praying you find one soon! (((hugs)))
