These are a few of the requirements:

  • 21 to 44 years old

  • Given birth to at least one child

  • Enjoy being pregnant

  • Desire to help others create a family

First, let me applaud Meryl for all that she does at ARTparenting. From beginning to end, she was there for me in fulfilling my purpose. Becoming a surrogate had always been a thought in the back of my mind and I’m so grateful that Meryl could make it a reality.

Seeing the look on the IP’s faces when they held their son for the first time was priceless. I’m blessed to have been able to help complete their family. Without a doubt, I’ll do it all over again!
