How Long Did You Know Your IP's Before you signed your contract?

First set of IPs: I started thinking about the idea of being a surrogate. I mentioned to my friends. One of my friends told me that her brother and sister-in-law had a child via a surrogate and had frozen embryos and wanted to try for another child. We lived in the same town, so it was perfect. She introduced us. We knew each other for over a year before we signed contracts (that's the one I voted on). We were researching certain aspects and just taking our time.
Second set of IPs: I met them through my first set of IPs. My FIM's parents were friends with my last IM's parents. That's how I ended up with a couple in New York. We knew each other about 4 1/2 months before signing contracts. Knew each other, as in meeting by phone first.

2nd IPs met through NESS in the summer and we were pregnant by the new year
3rd IPs I met through an AAS ad we met within a week or so and it took about a month or so to sign due to testing being completed
4th IPs I met through NESS and took less than 6 mos before we were signing and getting pregnant. WOOHOO!
My 5th IPs will be my 4th IPs ;)/> I've known them for awhile now and will sign contracts whichever day they want me to ;)/>

I met my second set of IP's through my RE. I was the first non-family member surro the clinic had ever used, and he was so happy when we had success with my first IP's, so he thought I might be able to help the new IP's. He was right, and I love him for thinking of me and helping us find each other!
