Surrogate at the ready!

posted by Jason Kottke   Aug 12, 2009

Jobless and saddled by debt from student loans, Leah Finnegan checks into becoming a surrogate mother.

I’m 23. I have a fresh liberal arts degree, $50,000 in student loans, and I can’t find a job. In the past, I’ve gotten through money-thin months by subletting my apartment or selling my personal possessions on eBay. But newly homeless and with my car, bike, and dressy trousers under new titles, I’ve nothing of worth left to proffer. Except, of course, myself.
