Are you a surrogate or an Intended Parent who has a nice blog that you update on a regularish basis?  I  would love to add your blog to my, “Favorite Surrogacy Sites” list.  I sort of lost some of old favorites in my blog re-design.  If you are interested, please add your URL to the comments section here or send me a message on my contact page!  Surrogacy is one of those things future intended parents and surrogates can not read enough about so the more resources I can link to, the better!
