Every so often women will approach me and ask if I think they could be a Gestational Surrogate. They may have read about my three journeys online or they've heard about me or another surrogate and they are intrigued. Really intrigued.
Usually, it seems to be a quick "check-in" of . . . "I'd be a good candidate, right?" before they apply. Sometimes my answer is yes and other times, I already know, that they aren't going to be accepted for one reason or another.
The list I'm going to share isn't about the minimum qualifications for my agency, Growing Generations but is about the traits that I've noticed (exceptional/awesome/amazing) surrogates have.
An AMAZING Surrogate is . . .
willing to be inconvenienced
able to see the "big picture"
supportive (of her IPs)
supported (by family, friends, etc)
able to keep her eye on the end result
If you think you've got what it takes to be, not just a surrogate but an AMAZING Surrogate, please take a moment to visit Growing Generations' online application. There you can find out if you meet the minimum qualifications, since you already know you possess some of the traits they would love their surrogates to have.
Experienced Surrogates . . . . if you have any traits to add to the list, please do so in the comments!
