This chapter provides an analysis of the ways in which fathers and adoptive mothers perceive surrogacy. Theorists opposed to surrogate motherhood might cite differences in the class backgrounds of surrogates and couples as yet another reason that surrogate motherhood is problematic. The adoptive mothers had all spent several years attempting to conceive, availing themselves of the most advanced reproductive technologies. A major obstacle posed by an adoption solution is the length of the waiting period, which can be as long as five to six years. All programs recommend eventual termination or severe attenuation of the surrogate-couple relationship, but the recommendation remains a suggested course of action rather than a directive. An additional barrier in the adoption process is posed by the discriminatory practices of some private adoption agencies.
