We have been trying for 6 years and had two failed attempts with TS. We can’t do GS as we could not afford to go that road.

Traditional surrogacy is much different from gestational surrogacy. With traditional surrogacy, a woman is being asked to give up her own child. With gestational surrogacy, a woman is being asked to carry someone else’s child.
There are many gestational surrogates out there who have no emotional problems with carrying a child that has no relationship to them. They are able to clearly separate themselves from the baby because they know it is 100% not theirs. Many gestational surrogates know that they would not feel the same way were they going through a traditional surrogacy.
Add that to the fact that most agencies, laws, and lawyers are encouraging gestational surrogacy (at least here in the States) because there is no legal connection between a gestational surrogate and the baby she gives birth to. With traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother must sign over her rights to the child.
They are still out there, you just need to find them!
