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 Sweden, Norway, the UK, and the rest of 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 nappies, 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 in the UK, 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 from all over Europe and bring the dream of parenthood a reality is a true honor. I love my job!

FAQ's

As you consider parenthood through surrogacy, you may have questions. We’ve been helping parents navigate their journeys for over two decades and have answered almost every question out there! Below is a small sample of the questions that we have been asked.
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.
How does the matching process work?
Once we have accepted a surrogate applicant into our program, our matching and legal teams determine possible matching options based on a variety of factors, including: the state she lives in, whether she has insurance, and the matching preferences from both intended parents and surrogates.

We will send the redacted profile of the intended parents (with no identifying information) to the surrogate. If she expresses interest, we will send her profile to the intended parents, similarly leaving out all identifying information. Once the surrogate and the prospective parents express a mutual interest, we will put them in touch by telephone, Skype or email so they can begin to get to know each other.

After communicating with each other, the surrogate and the prospective parents meet in person at their mutual convenience: at the surrogate’s home, the intended parents’ home, or some place in between. If the surrogate has children and/or a partner or spouse, the intended parents meet them as well.

An IVF physician medically screens them after a match is made. If for any reason the surrogate doesn’t pass the medical screening (which is rare), Circle Surrogacy presents a new match free of charge.
What does the legal process involve before and after the birth?
Circle’s legal team coordinates with local attorneys to ensure that you are properly matched with a surrogate in a state where you can accomplish the necessary legal work to finalize your parental rights. You will need to have wills finalized prior to the embryo transfer that ensure that a guardian is in place to care for your children in the event of your death. (If you live in the United States, Circle’s legal team can draft these for you.) Once you are matched, we negotiate contracts on your behalf with independent attorneys who represent the egg donor and/or surrogate. Circle works with local attorneys in the states where the surrogates reside in order to accomplish the legal work necessary to secure your parental rights. 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.
 Testimonials from our Swedish parents

Testimonials from our Swedish parents

Well, I guess we have all kinds of feelings. All of them positive. It has been very emotional. It is a major milestone in our lives and we feel both excited, joyful and relieved. We are so grateful for what Circle and the team have helped us to achieve. Fantastic!!! The boys are beautiful. Very similar but not identical. Douglas is a little bit bigger than Ian but both of them are of good size. Ian was first out so I guess he is the big brother. – Patrik

Thank you for helping us to be parents to this wonderful little boy! It has been a wonderful journey! We love you all! You have, with your skills, professionalism, and kind hearts, made this the best journey any parent can have while waiting for their child! - Anne and Magne

We couldn’t have asked for more from Circle. They were by our side, guiding us step by step, through out our journey to become parents. We have never regretted that we choose Circle to make our dream come through. - J&A
