Finding the right surrogate for you

In choosing a surrogate, I would go through an agency, because they've already done all the pre-screening. And then there has to be an intuitive part where you meet the person or see a picture. Something has to draw you to that person. And that's where the magic begins. I met our surrogate, Angela Whittaker, in India. And it was a very beautiful experience. The environment we were in all conspired to bring us together. And so when I saw her, and I saw the way that she was, I just knew that I wanted her to have my baby. And so at one point, I just asked her, and she told me, oh are you kidding? Get away from me. Don't look at me that. And she went back to her room. And she had a dream that she had our baby.
