Fay Johnson is the Program Administrator in the California office.
She is the proud mother of two children born with the help of surrogate mothers in CSP’s program and is available to couples in our program as a source of guidance and comfort.
Fay Johnson doesn’t believe in luck, but credits fate in bringing her to CSP. After years of unsuccessful infertility treatments, Fay’s husband Bob made a call in 1988 that was a wrong number – the ‘wrong’ number was answered by Bill Handel and a week later, Fay and Bob came into CSP for a consultation. At that time, Fay worked in the film industry in an office about one mile away from CSP, and yet had been unable to find any companies dealing in surrogacy. After all they had been through trying to have children, Fay will never forget their consultation and meeting with Bill Handel and Dr. Hilary Hanafin. “I knew that this was the light at the end of my tunnel, and I knew that with the help of CSP we would become parents!” Fay and Bob went on to have two children with CSP, a daughter named Lily, and four years later a son named Chase.
Although Fay was raised in the Boston area and still returns to New Hampshire every summer, she loves living in California. Most of all though, she loves being a parent.
