    We're looking for gay couples who dream of having a child and are exploring surrogacy. The producers of a brand new tv show want to help a gay couple go through the process of selecting a surrogate and egg donor. This upbeat show will explore the choices made by one lucky
    couple as they go through the process of getting a child of their very
    own. How does a couple choose a surrogate? What are the qualities they
    look for? What options do they have? Will both partners agree on what
    they are looking for?The show will focus on the experience from the
    couple's point of view from the time they decide to become parents to
    the moment that they have found the perfect matches in their donor
    and/or surrogate.If you are interested in this incredible opportunity,
    please email a photo, contact phone number, and a brief description of
    you and your partner to our casting department.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Sorry, this hits my 'ugh' button. Having gone through the process, it's complicated enough with doctors, lab techs, lawyers, counselors, and arrayed assistants. I couldn't even imagine throwing TV into the mix.

    Maybe OK if everything goes smoothly, but if it doesn't....eeesh.

    (My opinion, your mileage may vary.)

    I hope for participating the couple gets a nice chunk of money. I believe surrogacy is like 100-150k a kid?

    I already put aside a few thousand every year for a child. I will probably adopt but I think that will cost 50,000.00.

    Good luck with the show, it sounds interesting. Surrogacy is extremely expensive, though. And there's a huge amount of responsibility in raising the kid.

    For those low-income guys who'd like to have a kid, you can try to find a local lesbian couple (or even a single lesbian) who are looking for a possible father/sperm-donor, and are willing to do it at home the old fashioned way, with a turkey-baster or syringe. Make sure you pick carefully, and talk it over, cause it's a lifetime committment. And make sure you can afford it, you'll probably have to share expenses with the mother/couple. (You can say good-bye to vacations for the next 18 years or so, but there are lots of rewards, too,).
