Meet Brett Griffin-Young: International Outreach Associate and parent through surrogacy

Hello! I'm Brett Griffin-Young, Circle's International Outreach Associate. I'm here to be a resource and a support person for intended parents (IPs) in Switzerland and throughout Europe. Getting to play a small part in so many IPs' experiences on their road to parenthood is both humbling and an honor, so much so, that after my own surrogacy journey I felt compelled to join Circle and help others.

In early 2008, my husband and I realized what was missing in our life and decided to look at options to create a family. We turned to surrogacy, found Circle, and in 2009 in Denver, Colorado fatherhood was upon us! Before we knew it we were knee deep in diapers, baby wipes and bottles and couldn’t have been happier! Shortly therefore after, we decided to have another child. Our daughter was born in 2013, whom we adopted at 8 months old. Since we had such a great experience with Circle Surrogacy, we are currently embarking on our third child (2nd surrogacy journey).

I’m so appreciative that Circle has given me the opportunity to draw on my personal experience to help others understand surrogacy as a family building option. To be able to assist intended parents bring the dream of parenthood a reality, is a true honor. I love my job!

FAQ's


As you consider parenthood, you may have questions along the way. Don't worry. With 20+ years of experience, we've helped parents navigate surrogacy and their journeys to parenthood, and have answered almost every question out there!
What is the cost of surrogacy?

The cost for gestational surrogacy ranges depending upon the program chosen (we have a variety of programs to choose from) and whether a donor is needed. The ranges include: all agency fees, attorneys’ fees, screening and surrogate fees, and insurance costs. They do not include IVF costs. To find out the costs of our various programs, please click here.

What is the matching process?

The matching process is the first stage of your journey and begins with an initial call or Skype with your Program Coordination team to choose an IVF clinic and an egg donor (if needed). The next step will be to find an appropriate match with a gestational surrogate who has completed our comprehensive screening process. The average time frame for completing a match with a donor, clinic and surrogate is between 1 – 4 months and is based on your preferences and legal matching requirements.

What does the legal process involve before and after the birth?

Circle’s legal team coordinates with local attorneys to ensure you are properly matched with a surrogate in a state where you can accomplish the necessary legal work to finalize your parental rights. Once you are matched, we negotiate contracts on your behalf. Your surrogate and your egg donor (if needed) will have independent counsel. Depending on a variety of factors, your surrogacy legal work may include a pre-birth order, a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity, a judgment of paternity, a custody orders, or an adoption.
