Dear expert,
I considered to be a surrogate mother to a very good friend of mine. I've signed the contract, am on the meds and IVF takes place next month......

Now I've met the most wonderful woman and she said that she will leave me if I go through with this...what should I do? I can not break my promise to my friend but do not want to loose this wonderful woman. Please don't tell me that, if she really loved me she will stay with me regardless.....I understand why she does not want me to do this.....

Hi Let Me Be, welcome and thanks for your very post which has generated diverse responses. However I'd like some more info, so please post again and answer the question - why does she not want you to this? You say you understand her reasons and I'm curious what these are - how do these reasons impact on her, on you, on your friend and on the child? Also, what does your contract with your friend say about your deciding not to go through with the process?
