Family law can often involve some very personal and difficult issues, and so it is refreshing from time to time to hear about stories where the circumstances, involving appropriate legal planning, ensured a successful and happy ending. Along those lines, our readers here in North Carolina may be interested to learn about a recent successful surrogacy arrangement that left a family feeling closer than ever.
The story has a familiar beginning. A woman and her husband tried everything to get pregnancy; after many unsuccessful attempts to conceive naturally, the couple tried in vitro fertilization, which also failed to end in pregnancy. Just as their hopes of having a child started to slip away, her sister - married with three young children - reaffirmed her willingness to carry the child on the couple's behalf. After some consideration, the couple took up the offer.
