"I completed a surrogacy and was able to buy my first home for me and my daughter"

A single mum helped a couple have a child through surrogacy - which allowed her to buy her first ever home. Teale Kelley, 27, was able to buy a house for her and her daughter Ella, 10, after earning £56,721 ($72,000) as a surrogate for a couple. Teale used a surrogacy agency, which handled everything from the matching process to the intricate legal process. In December 2023, she gave birth to a baby boy, and two months later, she was able to purchase her £401,300 ($500,000) four-bedroom home. Teale always knew she wanted to be a surrogate and has always loved helping others.
