Born in the USA — American Surrogacy
Pregnant with twins, Laurie Thompson is one of a growing number of Illinois surrogates who are carrying babies for couples from Europe and Latin America. Conceived with a donor's eggs, they are the children of a same-sex couple from Spain who turned to Thompson because paid surrogacy is illegal in their country. "There's such pride in knowing that I did this for somebody," Thompson says of her experience as a surrogate, which has also included a pregnancy for a married couple from Serbia.
