The Surrogacy Program was established in 1991 by Shelley Smith, a licensed Marriage Family Therapist in California.
Surrogacy is an incredible human experience. The Surrogacy Program takes great care in matching surrogates and couples who will have a remarkable journey together. We are often told by our surrogates and couples how perfectly they were matched. We recognize that although destiny has a hand in the process, compatibility and sharing the same dream are elements that also affect the experiences of our clients. All of our recipient couples as well as our surrogates are very well screened and undergo psychological counseling. We work only with couples who have a valid medical reason to need a surrogate mother and have a significant chance of achieving a pregnancy.
Our Recipient couples are full of gratitude for the great gift they are being given and want to share the pregnancy. Typically, our couples and surrogates maintain connections during the pregnancy and in years to come. Our loving couples come from California, throughout the US, and from all over the world. They are wonderful and dedicated parents who long to have a family with your help. The couples we have worked with in The Surrogacy Program are not confined by race, religion, sexual preference or nationality. They all share one common unifying principle: a deep love of family.
