Not long after I had started my company in 2016, I got an email from a woman in Germany. Her name was Saskia Veigel. She wrote to ask if she could speak with me about my company, telling me that she was a director who wanted to feature surrogacy in a documentary they were filming. Initially I was a bit standoffish and expressed my disinterest. I was so used to the misconceptions in Europe of surrogacy and I didn’t want to be a part of any tailspin that occurred from a taboo issue in Germany where it wasn’t even legal.
When same-sex couple Asish Purushan and Krishneel Lall decided to have their baby at the Michael Garron Hospital (formerly Toronto East General Hospital), it was because their surrogate, Mazyline McCarthy, insisted on it.
She’d had her own children there and said the place “felt like home.”
This two-time surrogate mom is offering other options for parents who want to start their own families. It began with a vision and is now flourishing into miracles.
In Less than two years, these complete strangers have grown into family of a new kind. Together they’ve created a miracle that will be a part of them all in a unique way.
