Where did the year go?!

So much has happened during the first half of the year and I’d like to give you an update on what we’ve been up to.

  • Just this month, in time for Father’s Day, three different pieces involving surrogacy hit the web. First, The Desert Sun ran a story (print/online) entitled, “Gay men looking to surrogacy for children”. Growing Generations co-owner Stuart Bell and GG Surrogate Lorisha McFarland were quoted.

  • A Q & A with GG Clients, and parents to triplets, Sid and Aaron was printed within Arizona Foothills magazine. The article, with adorable pictures can be found on Growing Generations Facebook Page.

Of course we have several stories and events coming up in the next part of 2014 too and of course, we’ll keep you in the loop!

Be sure to LIKE us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter @Growgen and/or join us on Google+ if you’d like to see news/events as they are happening. You can also celebrate other journeys, as we announce transfers, positive pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and births as they happen! FYI, the next GG Surrogate baby born will be #1241!

Lastly, if you are interested in being a part of future media regarding surrogacy, egg donation, and/or your own journey, feel free to contact me at email hidden; JavaScript is required.
