Item description for Surrogacy Was the Way: Twenty Intended Mothers Tell Their Stories by Zara Griswold...
Surrogacy Was the Way: Twenty Intended Mothers Tell Their Stories documents the true stories of twenty women who had children via surrogacy. Surrogacy is a complete possibility in today's day and age, but anyone considering this route to parenthood should know the pros and cons. The women featured go to surrogacy for a variety of reasons, ranging from Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH) to cancer to unexplained infertility and everything in between. Some of the journeys go rather smoothly-while others are filled with one obstacle after another. Some of the women have children already and want to add to their family, while most are attempting to become moms for the first time. What they all have in common, however, is that every woman whose story is told knows what it's like to be an intended mother-the term for the "mother to be" if and when a baby is born. And all of the women ultimately end up having a child (or more) through surrogacy. When I first started researching surrogacy, I was fortunate to find several Online support groups. As I gave and received support to so many other women I became fascinated with the extent to which people would go to simply have a baby. I realized that their stories-our stories-needed to be heard; thus, the idea for this book was born. For the millions of women who have been touched by infertility in some way, or know someone who has, Surrogacy Was the Way will open their eyes to amazing possibilities. It will show them that they do have options, and with persistence and faith, they can achieve their dreams of motherhood after all.

Surrogacy was the way Apr 5, 2007
Informative and wonderfully detailed, the stories are all enriching and compelling, each with its own personal touch.
Wonderful collection of surrogacy stories! Jan 10, 2007
I was very happy to finally find a book that covered the stories of women that chose surrogacy as a family building alternative. All the stories were heartfelt and inspiring and I was glued to the book from beginning to end! As an experienced surrogate to twins, I know first hand the emotions and rewards that come with a successful surrogacy arrangement. Great book Zara!! Two thumbs up! :)
A Must Read!!! Oct 26, 2006
"Surrogacy was the Way" is a must read for anyone considering surrogacy as a family-building option. I read the book soon after I found out that my gestational surrogate was pregnant and it helped to relieve some of the anxiety I was feeling. I liked that all of the stories had the "happy ending" and that each woman seemed to genuinely share her worries and concerns about going through the surrogacy process. Reading the stories alleviated some of my own nervousness about surrogacy and it helped me to feel that I was not alone. I found it to be inspiring, calming, and real and I am so glad that Ms. Griswold wrote it. My mother, who also read the book, was so moved by the stories that she cried. There is no other book like this one out there and I am thankful that it came at the right time for me.
Amazing book! Jun 15, 2006
Surrogacy Was the Way is a wonderful book for anyone who is considering surrogacy, in the middle of a surrogacy, or just wants to know more and be supportive of a surrogacy. The book will make you cry and laugh. You will find at least one story in this book that will remind you of yourself.
The book is made up of 20 short stories (which are perfect for a busy person like me!) and is so easy and enjoyable to read. I would highly recommend this book!
