Escrow Management for Surrogacy Arrangements

The journey to parenthood through gestational surrogacy can be demanding mentally and emotionally. Our staff strives to ease the burden on intended parents as much as possible so that they can enjoy the journey and focus on the pregnancy and building their family. We facilitate communication between the intended parents throughout their journey and provide support and encouragement. We encourage intended parents to retain an experienced reproductive attorney so that the legal burden of the arrangement rests on the shoulders of a trained professional. Similarly, we encourage intended parents to retain a reliable escrow fund manager so that the burden of providing reimbursements and monies to their gestational carrier and third parties is off their shoulders as well.

Our office recommends Surrogate Fund Management, LLC to handle intended parents escrow. All funds held by SFM are fully insured. Based on the requirements and provisions of the Gestational Carrier Contract, SFM collects and scrutinizes receipts and gathers all supporting documents needed prior to making reimbursements. SFM also consults intended parents, as necessary, prior to reimbursing substantial expenses submitted. Finally, on a monthly basis, SFM provides a detailed account statement to intended parents so that they remain aware of disbursements being made from their account.

In this way, SFM removes the financial aspect of a gestational carrier arrangement from the shoulders of intended parents and fully assures the clients that their money is secure.

HelpUsAdopt

Helpusadopt.org - Does Not Define Family and Supports LGBT Adoptions
HelpUsAdopt was created by adoptive parents Becky and Kipp Fawcett in 2007. The Fawcetts were so grateful for the fact that they had the financial means to adopt their son Jake in 2005 that they looked to make a donation to an existing organization that would help ease another family's financial burden. However, what they found were organizations that defined family and adoption. Armed with this knowledge and their belief in family undefined, they decided to create a grant organization that does not define family or adoption --- Helpusadopt.org was born.

Helpusadopt.org is a national 501c3 financial grant program that helps couples/individuals (regardless of race, religion, gender, marital status and sexual orientation) with the costs of their adoptions (domestic, international, special needs or foster care) by awarding grants of up to $15,000.

A Surrogate Agency with a Personal Touch

Reproductive Possibilities offers a personal touch that can only come from someone who has gone through the process themselves. Melissa Brisman personally experienced the process of locating a surrogate and fertility clinic, as well as navigating the legal challenges and arrangements necessary to help her build a family of her own. She not only found her way through these challenges, but continues to pave the way for others as well. This experience and the joy of finally holding her children in her arms, inspired her to create an agency focused on guiding Intended Parents and Surrogates. Contact Us today to start your journey.
