Testimonials From Surrogates
I became a surrogate after a dear friend had done a journey and I saw the happiness and joy it brought both her and her IP’s.
I have had the best experiences helping my wonderful IP’s become parents: TWICE! They got their little girl and their little boy and now their family is complete. I can’t believe how easy it was to match us. I guess Circle knew that our personalities were perfect for one another! I never thought I would do anything like this in my life, but it’s one of the most rewarding things I have ever done for another person. The staff I worked with are AWESOME! I LOVE Elinor and Emily they’re great at what they do and Rachel is an awesome supporter and counselor. I’ve said I’m complete with my journeys, but if I ever changed my mind, I would certainly want to work with these 3 lovely ladies again! I could not have had better parents to help either! We are all so happy and thrilled. The hardest part of the journey wasn’t the pregnancy in mid-summer, (even if I did whine, haha) it is saying goodbye to my friends so that they can go back home and raise their beautiful children. THANK you all for being part of this experience!
Thank you! This has been an amazing journey and I feel extremely blessed to have taken part in Nir, Assaf, Ron and Jonathan's life. There are no words to describe the amazing feeling I have right now. This has been a truly incredible experience. I am also excited to see updates as this beautiful family grows old together. I wish everyone the best as we slowly end this journey together :)
Thank you very much Elinor for the beautiful roses. Please thank all the staff as well. While I don't want to downplay carrying a baby for 9 months. I think I had a pretty easy job. Circle really is a magical place. All of you make connections for families to go from dreams to reality and you all care so much that everything runs as smoothly as possible. I can't thank you enough for making this choice as easy as you did but giving my family and I an amazing moment in our lives we can be overwhelmingly proud of.
Thank you again for the gorgeous flowers and thank you for bringing such wonderful people into our lives especially Albin, Volker and amazing little Oskar!
Thank you so much for your help through the matching process. You have made me feel very comfortable and at ease with this process and yet I've never even met you. I can't say enough positive things about you and your agency to this point. We are kind of stunned by how fast it has gone however it doesn't feel rushed but organized and professional. We are really more excited than I think we thought we would be about this surrogacy journey at this point and I think a lot of that has to do with how much we really enjoyed meeting my IPs and their son, who was so cute and so good during our chat. We look forward to learning more about them and their lives. Again thank you so much for making this as stress free and enjoyable as possible.
Thank you all for your support through this journey. It has been absolutely wonderful and this couldn’t have happened to 2 more perfect people to become daddies. The guys already have the most wonderful sparkles in their eyes every time they look at her. They are both great people and have the most beautiful daughter!
Everyone is doing well and thank you for the beautiful flowers from Circle.
I cannot imagine doing this journey with anyone other than Circle, and my IF's have also expressed the same feelings. Within 24 hours of completing my questionnaire, I received an email from Jeni. She always responded quickly to my emails, and when I began to hesitate about being a surrogate because of my fear of the injections, she talked me through my nerves and helped me to realize this dream come true would be so worth it.
Each representative I have talked with at Circle since my initial screening with Jeni has been the same. Fatima, Alicia, Elinor, and Emily Sonier...everyone is friendly, everyone is quick to return phone calls or emails, and everyone seems so knowledgeable. Again, I know I'm still early in my journey (our first transfer is next month), but my IF's and I continue to talk about how smooth this process has been. We could never imagine navigating this road without the expertise of Circle.
I am very happy and wouldn't trade anything in the world for my journey. It's brought me closer to my husband and gave me two other little ones to love :) This is one happy Mama and one happy Surro mama ;)
I began my journey with Circle Surrogacy in May of 2010 and what an amazing journey it has been! The staff has been wonderful and really made the process smooth for me. They were very kind and always made themselves available.
The first profile that was sent to me turned out to be the perfect match. I could not have been more blessed to help such an amazing couple build their family. I knew becoming a surrogate would be rewarding but not nearly as rewarding and amazing as it turned out to be. This journey was truly a life changing experience for me and for my family. A huge thanks goes out to the staff at Circle Surrogacy for doing such an amazing job. They helped make this experience one I will hold dear to my heart forever. I had such a great experience I plan on continuing to work with Circle in building more families.
It has been a pleasure working with your Agency for three amazing journeys. Your staff has always been great and attentive.
I will be sad to not have surrogacy as part of my life going forward. It's something I have always been passionate about and enjoyed sharing with curious people.
Thanks again for all Circle has done.
I wanted to send you and Circle a huge thank you for the beautiful flowers as well as for all the support I received during the surrogacy. It has been several days since I gave birth and I am feeling great- or at least very good ... Mostly I wanted to thank you for introducing me to Mike and Brad. In so many ways and for so many reasons- I feel lucky to have them (and now Patricia) in my life. Since giving birth I have also realized how many people- especially kids- were affected by the surrogacy.
It is very rewarding to think that in my little corner of the world there is a generation of kids who will not think twice about a mom carrying a baby for another family, or that a baby can have two dads.
My experience as a surrogate and working with Circle has been nothing short of spectacular. I was matched with amazing Intended Fathers (now proud fathers!) in November, 2010. They are amazing men that I am now proud to call family. We transferred in March of 2011 and were thrilled to find out that we were pregnant with twins. Our pregnancy was incredible in every way and we delivered healthy and beautiful babies at 35.5 weeks. Over the course of our journey, I developed a real passion for all things surrogacy. I became very active in the surrogacy community and also discovered that I loved speaking with those outside the community about the beauty of surrogacy.
I have a truly amazing, happy life, but when I am able to be a part of something as special as surrogacy, well, it doesn't get any better than that for me.
Well we are due with a beautiful baby girl! Our ultrasound to find out was a month away, but my guys were going crazy not knowing! So I found a place in Chicago that does 3D ultrasounds and they had different packages. They bought the gender check package & I bought the DVD as a surprise for them (they will see her this Sunday, during our Skype session). The DVD will be the first time my guys will see her in action. They have only seen pictures.
All is well. I'm 18 weeks now but I look like I'm 6 months already!! My guys are so excited!! They just started working on the nursery and are getting ready to start interviewing nannies. They also started working on a name for her and have started recording themselves reading stories in French so she can listen through headphones on my belly. I truly never thought that when I met them in March that our relationship would have such a great bond. Circle did an amazing job matching us :)
Being a first-time surrogate, Circle has made the experience so fast and easy for me! The team has been absolutely amazing throughout the matching process. Whenever I did not feel comfortable with a potential profile, the social worker was very patient and understanding with me. She immediately began looking for a better fit for me, and because of her, I am now matched with an amazing couple who I am proud to be able to help. Thanks Circle! :)"
