Choosing a Surrogate or Donor
One of the first steps that a couple takes is to choose a suitable donor or surrogate. This can be accomplished by using a Donor or Surrogate Agency.

The agency will allow you to select your ovum donor or surrogate based on detailed information contained on the donor’s or surrogate’s file.
You will also be able to see pictures of the donor or her children. In some instances, some of these agencies will allow you to meet the donor if the donor consents to do so. In almost every instance, you will meet the surrogate.
