surrogacy

Hello to all! I am a new member, and would like to know if anyone has info, or has experience with using a surrogate? I am fortunate enough to have gone through a pregnancy and delivered a healthy little girl, but have now been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and have been told it isn't advisable to have another pregnancy. Life is going on, but I am grieving my unborn, unmade child. My husband is fully on board with using a surrogate and is also still trying to wrap his head around the idea of me not being able to carry our baby.
I have been doing research on the web and laws for my state, but it feels like surrogacy is an idea that is far beyond my reach.
If anyone has any feedback or could guide me in some way it would be much appreciated!
