Meet our friend Jessica Kern.
Jessica is a lovely, extremely well-spoken young woman who was born through a surrogacy arrangement. Jessica's adopted mother, who is Korean, tried to keep the story of her conception a secret from Jessica.
For Jessica, her story "is a perfect example of what can go wrong when science and the culture of entitlement meet - pitting the selfish desires of adults against the ultimate well-being of children."
"There needs to be more education on the downfalls of surrogacy," says [Jessica]. "I think that it's too easy to look at surrogacy from the point of 'What are my wants, what are my desires and how do I get them met?' But it's a lot harder to look at how it could possibly affect the child."
We don't often hear from the children born by surrogacy, but Jessica is willing to share her story.
