Family Choice is an Indiana surrogacy agency, however we serve parents across the globe and accept surrogates across the country. What makes Family Choice different?
PERSONAL TOUCH AND UNDERSTANDING
Family Choice has created a proprietary matching system, called Perfect Choice, that will better match the goals and outcomes of both the Intended Parent(s) and the Surrogate. This allows us to create more successful matches and alleviate some of the later legal negotiations and philosophical differences that can potentially break down a match relationship later down the journey.
FCS leadership has worked with clients from over 20 countries, and are not only familiar with the intricacies of international surrogacy journeys, but also thoroughly enjoy working with foreign Intended Parents to help their family-building dreams come true.
SURROGATE MENTOR PROGRAM
Family Choice has established a surrogate mentor program to guide our surrogates through their journeys. Every approved surrogate candidate will be paired with a mentor to support them on their journey. Our mentors are surrogates who have completed at least one journey with our agency and have been educated on the FCS process and approach. They are passionate about helping others navigate surrogacy and can offer advice and support from first-hand experience.
FOUNDATIONS OF SURROGACY
Family Choice has created a proprietary education program that all surrogates will be required to complete as a part of their qualification process. This program provides comprehensive education about the surrogacy process. Upon completion, surrogates will have the knowledge and information to embark on this life-changing journey.
MEET THE TEAM
Family Choice’s leadership has over fifteen years of combined experience as reproductive technology professionals. This level of experience is rare in our emerging and innovative profession, and allows us to provide an advanced level of service to our clients. We have worked with clients from all over the world and have encountered a multitude of scenarios, providing us with unique insight and experience to benefit FCS Intended Parents and Surrogates.
