Sharda Solanki, 36, holds up a photograph of Dr. Nayana Patel and the twins she had for an Asian client, as she sits in her house in Anand, Gujarat, India on 9th December 2012. While her husband Kantibhai works as a security guard earning 5000 rupees per month, Sharda had made hundreds of thousands with 2 surrogacies that she did with Akanksha Clinic, instantly changing her family's lives and future. "Dr. Patel is a blessing for everyone, both parties. For us who had nothing, and others who had no children. She changed our lives." Photo by Suzanne Lee / Marie-Claire France
