Hello, I am 19 years old. And I went through menopause at 9 years old. I have always wanted to become a young mother and to go through the whole process of carrying a baby. I have a rare chromosome disorder called Turners mosaic Syndrome, and my ovaries are no longer usable. But I was told by my doctor that my uterus is perfect! I know a couple that has been trying to get pregnant for about 13 years now. And I want to help them. Am I too young?.

Yes, you are too young. You MUST be 21 or older to become a surrogate mother in the United States, to legally enter into the surrogacy contract. Period.
With your medical issues, you might not qualify to become a surrogate mother, even if you have already found intended parents. When you are old enough, you will need to talk with their clinic to see if they would accept you.
