The best and most important question to ask a surrogate is that why they chose to be one. This question will help you know about the mental status of the woman.

We searched for a surrogate by ourselves. It was a very tiring and time-consuming process. At last, we got our surrogate. Now, finally, we can get started with the procedure.
