Merry & Bright

Christmas is this week and we’re here to say- it’s okay if what you’re feeling isn’t ‘merry’ or
‘bright.’ In this industry, you will see a lot of happy posts. Who doesn’t want to see the happy posts?! But, ultimately, surrogacy is not always the quick, easy, journey it appears to be on social media. This year we’ve had some losses, most recently GC Britney learned that though her HCG testing indicated pregnancy there was no heartbeat detected. We would appreciate it if you would take some time today to hold space for those in your life who may not be feeling the holiday spirit just yet. Positive vibes to all the families waiting for their baby!

#TBT

#tbt to this awesome post-delivery shot of Case Manager, Shannon and GC, Derek taken almost TWO YEARS ago! Every delivery is special, but this one was especially so for Shannon as she was able to be there as Derek’s support person. We can’t say it enough, but Shannon is one of the major components that makes BFI different! From medical clearance, to match meetings, to FET, to helping with meds, every appointment during the pregnancy, to having all the answers…Shannon literally holds our GC’s hands through every step of their journey. We’re not just saying that- watch the comments on this post! You’ll see GC’s and IP’s alike commenting…we just know it!

It Takes a Village!

‘It takes a village!’ This phrase has been used countless times to describe parenthood. But what about the parents that need a village to create their family? For many people, the idea is inconceivable…it’s something that happens to someone else. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Infertility doesn’t discriminate. The couples we help every day look just like you. They could be your friends, your family members, or your colleagues. Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples, but for many it’s a silent battle. Be kind; be mindful of your words. You never know what someone is going through even if you think you do.

We are so humbled to be a part of your village!
