Louisa Ghevaert concludes in the article "UK surrogacy at its best can be a life-fulfilling, life-creating exercise.  It can be the fulfilment of the hopes and dreams of a family, it is an expression of altruism, and it can deliver a biologically related child. But the handing over of a child is a hugely significant event for everyone involved, and there is no getting away from that".
