The Process of Surrogacy Abroad
Going through surrogacy in general and particularly, surrogacy abroad, can be very difficult emotionally. The great distance and the inability to be close to your surrogate throughout your pregnancy, can be challenging. Therefore, it is important to have a reputable agency like Lotus by your side on your journey to parenthood.
