Stephanie had her own journey through infertility. After eight years of treatments including more than 10 artificial insemination procedures, three surgeries, three miscarriages, and 13 IVF procedures, she finally realized her dream of having children when a surrogate carried her twins. Stephanie also had to adopt her twins because the state where they were born did not recognize surrogacy.

If you are considering using surrogacy to grow your family, it is important to know up-front what to expect from a legal standpoint.
