and to ask for a wish, a hope a prayer...
a friend of a friend of mine had 2 textbook pregnancies and decided to do possibly the most selfless act on earth and become a surrogate mother. She chose (or was chosen? I don't know how this works) a couple who has lost TWO sets of twins.
She is in her second trimester, and today at the big u/s the baby was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome. She is very worried, and feels guilty, and is very unsure of how this pregnancy will continue, and doesn't have a lot of say in any of it.
Oh, my. I can't even begin to understand the complications of this.
