The right time for being a surrogate is different for every woman. Some women get the urge to be pregnant and that makes it the right time for them, other women want to be able to help a couple or family and that makes it the right time. While others may have been through a rough time in their life which has since resolved itself and now they want to be able to give back. There is no one thing or time which makes a woman know that the time is right for her to be a surrogate. For many surrogates it is something they have considered or thought of for a long time and then it just feels like the right time to go forward. If the time is right, you will be excited about each step and you will take the responsibility willingly, giving it your full attention.
