Growing Generations provides surrogacy and egg donation services within the U.S. to clients from around the world. We bring together all of the necessary pieces to offer one seamless process, and have guided thousands of clients, from over 60 different countries, through one of life’s most inspiring journeys.
Our mission is to build families around the world for everyone and anyone through surrogacy and egg donation. Our purpose is to deliver an experience that everyone involved will treasure forever.
Surrogacy and egg donation allow for gay and straight couples, as well as single men and women, who cannot produce viable eggs and/or carry their own pregnancy, to have children. Families created through surrogacy and egg donation do not match the conventional method for creating a family. But we believe that it takes something other than biology to create a family.

Growing Generations 2016 Scholarship
What is family and what does it take to form one?
- John Sadler (University of Central Oklahoma):
“Just because you are biologically born into a family, does not necessarily mean you behave as a family. Family is work and effort and it takes a lot more than birth to put the full meaning into effect.”
- Krista Schulte (University of Utah):
“A family is more than just demographics; having a foundation of love, trust, commitment, and encouragement- with a little crazy too- is what makes a family a family.”
- Maylene Rodriguez Scott (University of Massachusetts):
“Not only has history proven that the concept of family is fragile, my own experiences have proven that family cannot be restrained simply to societal norms or biology. Instead, family is fostered by emotional ties and the shared meanings that people attribute to those ties.”
