Close to a year ago, Ana Perez, 29, posted a question on her Facebook page: Hey, guys, if you had the opportunity to become a surrogate mom, would you? Though many of her friends went ahead and left their comments, one childhood friend stored the idea in the back of her head. Ana spent the following weeks researching the role of a surrogate, considering whether she wanted to do it or not. Then, one day, the childhood friend contacted Ana and asked to meet for coffee. The two women talked about the process at Starbucks. Ana says that her friend, who was looking for a surrogate, told her about all the shots and medication that were involved. Having been cheated out of money by a woman claiming to be a surrogate, Ana’s friend had made it a point to know all there was about surrogacy. “Within hours of talking with her, I knew I could do this,” says Ana. The couple has given Ana permission to talk to Mamiverse about the experience, but prefer to remain anonymous for this story.
