As most of you know, I am looking to be a surrogate again. I've been looking off and on for over a year now. I was matched last year, but it didn't work out. Not every match is a good match or the perfect match. You are committing to at least a year together, you don't want to settle. If it doesn't feel 100% great in the beginning, how will it feel while you're pregnant and then after the birth?
Some people think that it's just as simple as an Intended Parent (IP) looking for a Surrogate and a Surrogate looking for an Intended Parent. Not so simple.
Here's what I think:
- Personalities should be compatible
- You should agree on issues that could arise
- Both sides should feel good about moving forward
- You should agree or at least have some sort of idea of what you want as far as a relationship during and after
