I came across the agency, Colorado Surrogacy, a little bit before Christmas. I was given contact information when I was looking into having a baby with my wife Mariah. I told the lady on the phone, who was Jennifer, about my previous surrogacy journey. I informed her of my doubts with this agency. She gave me a little info about their program and how they have a IP’s (intended parent) that I may be interested in. She gave me insight on this IP in particular and I told her, “yes.” I knew I was the person for the job right then and there. After a few more minutes of conversstion, she ended the note on making sure I got private insurance and to go online and fill out the basic application. Due to the fact I just recently switched jobs, I was not aware if my position was benefits eligible. A few days passed and I didnt put much thought into it. I found myself in my bosses office going over my floor orientation schedule. We started talking about my position and come to find out, I was eligible for full benefits due to being full time (I thought this whole time I was PRN). Once I was home, I filled out the quick online application and called Jennifer back ASAP to make sure she received it. Of course, she did and I reminded her that I was still interested in the IP we discussed days ago. On 12/29/2016 I received a email from Jennifer, who is part of the team, about my welcome packet and the steps needed to be done. This is the full email disclosed:
