A Surrogate's Story:
Cindy

I gave birth to twin boys with a wonderful man. But he was not my husband. He is a single dad and I was his gestational surrogate. I know what we did was unconventional, but it felt right. There are so many people (gay or single) who would make great parents and deserve the opportunity. So we just figured we'd like to help. We found ARR through our local newspaper and decided to give them a call. The process was wonderful, and ARR treated us like part of their family. The most rewarding experience of my life, besides my own son being born, was seeing this new father hold his sons. His mother couldn't stop thanking me. We've already been able to see the boys once since the delivery and their father is adjusting quite well. We intend to stay in contact, even if it's just the occasional Christmas card or school photo. This experience was exactly what we had hoped for. So many worthy people are out there looking for help in creating their own family.

Our Approach to Matching

We welcome you to contact us or submit an application. After this, an ARR representative will get in touch with you to discuss the next steps. We give you a detailed introduction to ensure you and your family are comfortable. We then provide you with a checklist of required documents to the process may begin.

Once we have the necessary information, we schedule a meeting with you and your partner (if applicable) to explain the medical, legal, and matching process. During this meeting, we address all your questions and review the entire surrogacy process. If you decide to move ahead, we take the next steps to match you with intended parents.

We take a very thoughtful approach in matching you with prospective intended parents. Once presented with a suitable match, a meeting with the intended parents is scheduled. If you both decide that you would like to work together, we move on to the final medical and legal aspects of the match.

The compensation for a first-time gestational surrogate starts at $30,000. There is additional compensation in special circumstances such as multiple-births, C-section, etc. All compensation is kept in an insured escrow account, independently managed an escrow agency. This compensation is paid to the surrogate at specific milestones throughout medical procedures and pregnancy.

Becoming a surrogate and helping people complete their families will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. We want to help you every step of the way. Contact us to learn more.
