Thank you for your advice! We are making some progress! We've been doing more research and we would have some more questions.
1. Regarding the psychological evaluation, we don't manage to find a 'reproductive' psychologist. Would the psychologist need to have any specific qualification or can be done by any psychologist that says "yes, I can do that"?
2. California, and North California in particular, is really REALLY expensive. We knew that but we didn't know it was THAT expensive. For this reason, we are comsidering doing the whole process in another state. We talked to other IPs that did the paperwork in NV and the fertility treatment in Texas. We've been reading that Texas recently made progress on surrogacy law but we are not sure if we are missing something. Would you have any advice here?
3. We are on a tight budget. Other IPs recommended that we should share an egg donor with other IPs. We've also heard good experiences about this. Any warnings in this regard? Any other considerations that we could help us keep the budge under control?
Thank you in advance!
