    Dear Jean-Francois,

    I hope you’re well.

    Are you able to send this notice out to your network as it might be of interest to men looking to start a family. My client Families Through Surrogacy is a Not-For- Profit. It’s in the ‘What’s on’ Section of Boyz Magazine today. And Gay Star News will be running a story.

    Interested in starting an LGBT family through surrogacy but don’t know how?

    In the UK approximately 50% of those engaging in surrogacy are gay singles or gay couples.

    Scott is UK/Australian, his husband is Bavarian.  Their son Charlie was born via US surrogacy. They got to know their surrogate, egg donor and husbands well and will stay in touch as Charlie grows up. They were granted parental orders in January.

    Adam is a business change management consultant. He and partner Christopher are creating their family using an increasing popular hybrid model – a surrogate in Canada, with the IVF occurring in the US.

    Neil and Andrew live in Northern Ireland, have been together nine years and work in banking and travel respectively. They looked at many options before meeting a UK surrogate through an online forum in April 2015. Their son was born in November 2016 via gestational independent surrogacy after four years of planning.

    These are a few of half a dozen couples who will share their experiences at Families Through Surrogacy’s fourth annual UK conference at 155 Bishopsgate, Liverpool St on 11 March 2017. It’s an event which puts parents and surrogates front and centre, sharing honest appraisals and real-life journeys.
    It also allows prospective parents to hear about the latest developments from surrogacy experts from around the globe.
    “We are seeing a rise in gay couples accessing surrogacy in the UK,” said Sam Everingham, parent of two girls born through surrogacy and Founder of Families Through Surrogacy. ”But there remain many who prefer to be able to compensate their surrogate which isn’t allowed in the UK, so engage overseas, or who just can’t locate a surrogate at home. For them, the decisions are getting harder as certain countries have chosen to close their borders to intended parents and the legal hurdles are becoming more challenging.”
    The annual conference brings together intended parents, to discuss how to engage safely and responsibly amidst this flux.  Says Everingham. “The conference is a once-yearly chance to learn about surrogacy, and about how to minimise the chance of things falling over.”
