Couple of questions about DE

I am considering DE with and anonymous donor. Will probably go through Foot Steps to family for the donor since that is the clinic my RE uses most.
Was wondering if anyone was familiar this Foot Steps to family and if so what was your experience? I have heard that it is $4000 just for the agency fee and think that is kind of high for a fee. What were your agency fees?
I have been looking at donor profiles. Some of these women have previous cycle that they have gotten anywhere between 30 and 50 eggs. Do you usually stay away from these ladies? I would think with that many a lot of the eggs wouldn't be mature.
How do the clinics screen for the donors? Do the donors get drug tested to make sure they are not as my DH puts it "crack whores"?
My husband is having an issue with DE because he feels that he is with me because I have traits that he likes. He thinks it is weird to do DE because the child will not inherit any of my traits. Did any of your husbands have any of the same issues?
I know this is a big step and a couple of months ago I was for sure I would do donor egg but now since i am faced with this, I am really on the fence. I know I have seen lots of ladies have good success with DE so that makes me more hopeful.
Thanks for your input.
