if you had a friend who could noy concieve children or maybe a family member and this was tearing them apart would you have a baby for them? or would you just stand and watch them be unhappy?

I could never have a baby for someone else. I do not think that it would matter who wanted to have a child, because I could not do it. I do not think I could carry a child for 9 months and then give the child up. Even if I knew they would be in a very loving family, I could not ever give up my child. I would have too much love to give the child to someone else. This is just my own opinion. I know there are some people who would gladly do this for someone that they loved. I think it is wonderful that some are able to provide children to great couples.

I believe that people who were meant to have children, are blessed with them, one way or another. Those that were not meant to have children, are not.

No, I wouldn't. If they want a baby that badly, there are babies who need to be adopted. I know this sounds harsh, but people need to learn to deal with life and quit trying to force something that wasn't meant to be.

I could never have a baby for someone else. I commend people who are able to do this though. I just know that for me it wouldn't be right. I would never be able to let go when the time came and this would just cause problems and heartache for everyone involved.

If my friend asked me, part of me would want to say yes, but I have a fiance to consider. I couldn't say yes to my friend without discussing it with my fiance and see how he would feel about it. And if I couldn't for whatever reason, then I would definitely try to help my friend in any way I could.

There would be a lot of things to consider. How close am I to the friend? Even if it is a family member doesn't mean that there is closeness there. And that would be what it would take for me. I hate to see anyone be unhappy for this kind of a reason but I don't know if it started out me getting pregnant for them if I could end up giving the baby up. There is a closeness that a child and mom has while the baby is inside of the mom. So your question is a very hard question to answer and know if that ever happened if I would be strong enough to give the baby up.
