become a surrogate

A Parent's Story
Cheryl Johnson, Willowbrook, Ill.

I always wanted children, but as I grew older I knew the chances of becoming pregnant would become harder. ARR had the philosophy I was looking for in an agency. The ARR team made me feel very comfortable as a single woman making a life-changing decision. I also was impressed by ARR's egg donor process. ARR did extensive background work as part of the process, ultimately matching me with two exceptional potential donors. They both shared my characteristics and values. I am now the proud mother of twin boys. My donor and ARR helped me create the family I always wanted.

Our Surrogacy Program

In order to make the process proceed as smoothly as possible, we manage all its facets in an all-inclusive program. The ARR Gestational Surrogacy Program is a comprehensive service that encompasses a wide range of services needed for a successful match. The program covers the following:

  • The surrogate's initial screening
  • Criminal background checks (for the surrogate and partner if applicable)
  • Psychological screening (for the surrogate and partner if applicable)
  • The match meeting between you, your potential surrogate, and a third party mental health professional
  • Forwarding of medical records and match information to your reproductive endocrinologist for approval
  • Establishment of short term life insurance for surrogate
  • Facilitation and management of escrow account throughout the surrogacy

We begin with a thorough vetting of surrogacy candidates and then careful consideration as to what factors would a successful potential match. Within this match, we include our facilitation of legal agreements and escrow arrangements through a reputable independent agency as well as the oversight of medical needs and milestones. We stay with you and your surrogate through every step of the way as we ensure all the details are attended to and no ends are left loose.
