    • Description:

      The traditional Filipino family consists of the husband, the wife, and their progeny. However, some couples may encounter challenges in trying to conceive children due to infertility, physical disability, disease, or other physiological complications. While adoption is an option for heterosexual couples, couples of the same sex, or even individuals who want to fulfill their desire to be parents but cannot do so, it is not always what they prefer if they want to have their genetic imprint on the child. Adoption has become the less popular alternative because oftentimes, it involves bringing into the family fold a child totally unrelated to either of the intended parents. In addition, the comprehensive regulations governing domestic and international adoption has prompted more couples to opt for the less tedious and unregulated practice of surrogacy to achieve their reproductive goals.
