Identifying a surrogate is different. You will be given a profile, which consists of a medical history, personal motivational, and pictures of a surrogate. If you decide the profile is a good potential, you will meet with her and her husband/partner, along with a CCI representative.
Couples that do not live in California must still meet with the surrogate before moving ahead.
