A: From time to time we receive phone calls from Intended parents saying, I found a Surrogate online, she seems really nice, but what should I be looking for????
The answer isn't as simple as it seems:
The usual criteria, has kids, is in a stable financial situation, and doesn’t have a criminal record.For CFC< The usual criteria isn’t enough.We pride ourselves on the Sisterhood, and Support that we offer our Surrogates.It starts even in the early stages of the process.It starts at The “Hello”.We connect any potential Surrogates with a Tribe of other women who are considering Surrogacy, alongside those who are currently Surrogates.We do this to encourage a dialogue that will begin by seeing others enjoying, struggling, or curious about, or involved in the journey.
Surrogacy is about so much more than Handing over the baby.It is a profound Right of Passage for women, a true giving of self, and how does one know that they are ready for a Surrogacy??
During our Intake call with either Angie or myself, you will be challenged by our In depth questions, asking the “who”, “what”, “when”, “why”, and “where”.
Who- Who do you see yourself helping?
What- What do you want to get out of the Journey?
When- When works for your family to proceed?
Why- What is your motivation for being a Surrogate?
Where- Where do you see this relationship going in the future? Where would you like your Intended parents to be located?
We ask these questions not to be nosy, but we are often curious to find out more about you, as a person, to ensure that we are helping you to find the best suited Intended parents, and to help you get the most out of your journey.
We always want to ensure that we are working with all parties best interests in mind, and so for that reason, our screening of the Surrogate not only protects the Intended parents, but also allows the Surrogate to sort through questions that she has, to ensure that she is working with a couple who shares her values, beliefs, and is looking for a similar relationship.
