Benoit & Yannick

Paris, France

The gift that you are about to give in helping someone building a family is incredible. We would be so lucky to make this journey with you. We cannot wait to know you. Making this journey together would for sure result in a strong and unique bond between you and us. We would be there for you during the complete journey and hope that we will be able to build a strong relationship based on trust and sharing; somewhere you could feel safe and peaceful. We like to think of you as the fairy godmother of our child. We will make sure that you are part of his life and that one day he will understand the magical gift you made.

Shahar & Yaniv

Nes Zona, Israel

We think it’s an incredible thing what you’re doing and we can’t, still, fully comprehend it to the deepest level. We know it allows us (and so many others) to fulfill a dream, probably the biggest one. It gives us this incredible gift of caring for a child. Of caring.

We know it is a decision, an action and an outcome that will improve us as individuals as a couple, as a family and it fills our hearts with hope and optimism!

Voula & Jessie

Aurora, Ontario

What are the right words to say to someone like you? Someone who is offering a family the priceless gift of a child? “Thank You” just doesn’t seem adequate, yet we rely on those words to tell you that your existence truly gives us faith that better days are ahead. Whether you choose us or another couple/individual, please know that we think you are an extraordinary human being and hope you know that your loving and selfless decision to bring life into the world will give any family you choose so much joy. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends: all of these lives will be forever changed by your generous heart.

Joanne & Hooman

Germany

We think it is amazing and a real gift that some women are prepared to help couples who can’t have children on their own. We have the greatest respect and appreciation. We hope to find a surrogate who would be happy to help us finally achieve what we have been trying for so many years. This would be an exceptionally special dream coming true. It would be important for us to get to know and learn about this
special person.

We are both cheerful, open, considerate, kind, caring, gracious, respectful and warmhearted and these are the things amongst other I love about my husband and hope that you help us realize our dream.

Philippe & Jerome

Paris, France

During the pregnancy period, we would like to have a relationship with you (by phone or skype), just in order to share this incredible experience. We do not want to be too intrusive. If possible, we would like to be in the room when our child is born. After the birth, we plan on having a very open dialog with our child about he or she came to be in this world. We would be very happy if our child could meet you in the future as you are very important in his history. We will clearly explain to him that your generosity was key.

Michelle & Robert

Santa Rosa, California

We have been waiting for the chance to share our life with a little one. Our home is full of love, and we are so excited to start a new chapter in our life with a baby. Thank you for considering to be our surrogate. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better.

Mauro

Barcelona, Spain

I hope I can find a woman who can help me with this next great adventure of my life. Someone that I feel I have a connection with, someone we can stay friends with long term. Someone who is caring and kind, and who connects with who I am and wants to experience this journey with me.

Funny how I chose my egg donor. I just saw a few pictures and I could see a warm person with a big smile, happy with her own child already. It was just instinctive first before looking at the rest of the information. I hope a similar kind of click can happen with my surrogate.

David & Sebastien

Montreal, Quebec

We are looking for a chance to be parents, but we are going to need much help to do so ! Forever grateful, we would be very happy to give the woman who will do this journey with us, and her family, a place in the life of our future children. Even if it is from a distance. We have ideas of what surrogacy could be for us, but this is a work in progress, and we hope it will grow with the family we will meet, so we can decide together what is best, and everyone feels safe and respected. We are looking forward to getting to know you…

Joey

Woodbridge, Ontario

Despite the emotional and financial hardships that will most likely accompany me on this journey, I am certain it will all be worth it in the end when I hold my own child for the very first time!
If you decide on partnering with me in this wonderful endeavour, you will be providing me with a dream-come-true – one that I’ve been working towards for many, many years. As my surrogate, you will be instrumental in helping me achieve this dream.

Amir & Gilad

Tel Aviv, Isreal

A woman who decides to become a surrogate, needs to be a special woman. We know becoming a surrogate is not necessarily an easy decision to make, and the physical and emotional toll it takes from you and your family is high. But we believe in the good and the positive in people. We believe that if you feel you were fortunate in life, it is only natural you would want to share what you have with others. Giving is an important value we were raised on, and wish to pay it forward to our children. We can be almost 100% sure we share these thoughts with you, our potential surrogate.

Paul & Tabatha

St. Albert, Alberta

We hope to have a good bond with our surrogate and feel comfortable with each other throughout this entire process. How can you not get along or just fall in love with someone that is willing to give you such a wonderful gift? Having her come into our lives, would be a gift in itself. We would like to be engaged as much as possible, as long as she is comfortable. In all honesty, we don’t really know what we want in a surrogate. We just want her to be stress free and know that we are there for her. We can’t wait to meet our surrogate and start this amazing journey with her. Pick us… pick us… pick us. LOL. All we want is our surrogate to enjoy this exciting experience in the most positive way. Knowing that we will always be there for her in every way that we can.

Alicia & Marc

Brandon, Manitoba

We want you to know that we fully acknowledge the sacrifice that you are willing to make to enrich our lives. There are no words to express how honored we feel that you are willing to give us and our baby the gift of life. We want you to know that this gift reaches far further than the two of us. You will be blessing Scarlett with a sibling and if you yourself have a sibling, you know that there is no better friendship, no stronger bond in the world. We dream of the moment our baby will wrap his or her tiny fingers around Scarlett’s. We want you to know that you will forever be recognized within our home as family. We will celebrate you and honor you in our family’s story. We can imagine a time in the not so distant future when you are joining us for milestone celebrations.

Tatiana & Suhaib

Edmonton, Alberta

I really think there is an empathic person out there that is willing to help couples who’s circumstances didn’t give them children on their own. When I stepped the first time into a fertility clinic and I heard about mother/surrogates, I thought for sure there wasn’t many women who would do this for someone. It must be hard to give your body and feelings to somebody you barely know and to grow their child that you know will not live with you. But please know that we are well-rounded, happy, kind and very honest, loyal and trustworthy. Our surrogate will be part of our family and will be treated with the utmost care and respect. I really hope there is an amazing person out there who would want to speak with us and get to know us more. Warmest wishes!

Jane & Terrance

Rorketon, Manitoba

If you choose to join us on this journey as our surrogate, this story will unfold with the help of you and your family, and we will want our child to know the amazing people who made it all possible. Throughout the pregnancy, we would be interested in the many daily details, hearing about how you are feeling, the medical appointments and ultrasounds; this is the part of the journey we have never had a chance to experience yet! If we live within traveling distance and enough of a connection develops, it would be wonderful to be able to spend time together. If we don’t live within easy traveling distance, through the years you will be an important part of our child’s birth story and we would like the child to be able to meet you and your family at some points during their childhood. In any case, we would make every effort to have some ongoing contact as the child grows up, regardless of distance, if that is something you would welcome.

Dan & Elad

Vancouver, British Columbia

Your choice to give this huge gift to people who are strangers to you is incredible. We will be very happy to meet a woman who is willing to do such a thing. We strongly believe in partnership, communication, and building relationships. We will be very pleased that our relationship will deepen as the process progresses and want you to become a part of our life in the future if this is something that you desire. We greatly appreciate your choice and we intend to support you throughout the whole journey. It is important to us that you feel safe and relaxed. We will be happy to talk and communicate at any time to and provide you with all of your needs.

Christine & Dick

Ottawa, Ontario

They say it takes a village to raise a child, but for some, it also takes a village to create a child. Our village is one filled with great friends, whom we adore, and loving family and community, who are praying and hoping that one day we will be gifted with the joy our heart’s desire; becoming parents. We are missing a key person in our village and that is a beautiful souled, selfless and loving woman who is ready to help us create our family.
If you are interested in joining a village and hearing more about ours, please do reach out and connect, we’d love to hear from you.

Shay & Hannes

Berlin, Germany

We strongly believe that an amazing woman who would willfully give the gift of life to our baby out of such a pure and loving place is also the one who would deliver the right emotions to it. We know that the unborn baby can feel you and listen to you during the pregnancy, which is why we believe that you would essentially shape it’s very first foundation as a human, for which we would deeply and eternally be thankful for!
To us, doing this journey together with you means that our bond goes way beyond just the pregnancy. When we think about this, we imagine a relationship for life. During the pregnancy, the little we can do in re-turn for you, the woman who would give us the most precious thing in our lives is to take care of you and make sure that you have the best possible conditions, safety and comfort, which is why we, for instance, picked a highly professional and successful fertility clinic, which always puts safety first.

Gavin & Moritz

Toronto, Ontario

Ideally, we would like to have a close relationship with our baby’s surrogate, and welcome her and her family to remain a part of our children’s life, if she/they desire. That being said, we do appreciate that some surrogates prefer not to become as closely involved in the life of the child or children they will carry – it is something we are open to discussing. Ultimately, we know it is important that we, our child’s surrogate and her family all speak openly about respective needs and preferences and build a relationship of honesty and trust with open lines of communication.
Thank you for reading this profile, but more importantly, for considering undertaking this incredible journey, be it for us for another family. It is such an amazing gift!
