• Celebrating 30 Years of building families!

Our Team

Since 1991, our Building Families, Inc. has been involved with helping couples create the family of their dreams through surrogacy. With over 25 years experience in gestational surrogacy and strong professional relationships with leading infertility medical professionals, our management team has unique insight to the needs of all participants in the surrogacy journey.

Our Program Director, Carol, founded BFI with the belief that personal support is paramount to both the Intended Parents and their precious Surrogates. This belief came from her own experience as a Surrogate 30 years ago. She decided then and still holds to this today that all of the Surrogates be local to her and her BFI staff. BFI is strategically located throughout Southern California for just this reason!

International IP Coordinator

Eva Maria first came to us, all the way from Sweden, in 2016 when she and her husband, Lars, began their journey to parenthood through surrogacy. Together they welcomed their first daughter through our program in 2018. Their journey was so wonderful that they decided to come back again for a second journey and thus became a family of four in 2021. While her professional endeavors lie mostly in sustainable and effective supply chain logistics, her heart is firmly vested in helping others build the family of their dreams. She has made it a passion of hers to advocate for those struggling with infertility and searching for surrogacy solutions in Sweden. We are grateful to have Eva Maria on our team and operating our Building Families, Inc. office in Sweden.
