Cindy, a very prominent Chinese woman, and I had been emailing for several weeks, just going over the basics about surrogacy in China and the entire process. There was so much more to the process that she had imagined and she had many questions. Even after a few weeks of emailing there was not much that I knew about her.
Over the course of time and a few meetings in person, I learned that she was an older, very prominent woman from China. She desperately wanted to have children, but due to her age she was not able to conceive. She had tried many IVF cycles herself, all of which ended with no success. Hence her need for a surrogate. She like many women in her situation were at first hesitant with me. But they soon understood that I was there to help and they put their trust in me.
To me Cindy was very brave. She was coming to the US from China, and spoke no English at all. Her husband was only in the US for about three days, and Cindy stayed behind wit
