A Discussion About Fertility Preservation for Pediatric Cancer Survivors

Pediatric cancer can impact families in so many ways. Not the least of which is the ability for survivors to have biological children of their own someday. In our latest blog, we interviewed Dr. Gad Lavy of New England Fertility to provide a deeper understanding of the options available to families facing this difficult diagnosis.

September was Pediatric Cancer Awareness month, a cause that resonates personally with many Growing Generations team members and clients. As an

We're excited about all the embryo transfers lately and hoping for lots of Summer babies next year! Surrogate Zlata shared this update from her transfer day with Dr. Kolb.

"Feeling really good about today! (Even though you can definitely tell by my face it was early in the morning 😂)"

You know, they say in surrogacy the early bird gets pregnant! (At least we're pretty sure we heard that somewhere 😄)

At 10-months-old Sierra already knows a good story when she sees one! 😍 Her parents shared this adorable photo of her enjoying Kim Bergman, PhD children’s book “You Began as a Wish”. It’s a great way to help children born through assisted reproduction understand the very special parts it took to make them who they are, beginning with a wish!

Today we have a #WhereAreTheyNow update from a trio our team has loved keeping in touch with over the years. Being on the journey to parenthood with dads Todd and Scotch is an experience we'll treasure forever. It's hard to believe it has been 11 years since we welcomed GG babies #861, #862, and #863 into the world and into our hearts ❤ Here's what their proud parents had to say when we checked in:

"It's so true, time flies. With all the anticipation and process of becoming a family one might think this is taking forever. Today that period feels like a microsecond. We are enjoying life as a family beyond our imagination. Our triplets are now 11 and we feel the growing pains of our hearts stretching to make room for joy. We couldn't have done it without you, Dr. Ringler and, of course, our angel of surrogate Kristy. Everyday we are grateful."

We’re here with another #WhereAreTheyNow feature from our GG family archives. This time we caught up with the Vaughn Woelfel family – dads Rich & Tommy, and their 13-year-old twins, Aiden & Austin (GG babies #645 & #646). When the twins were just a few years old, they took part in a family portrait series at GG. This summer they all had some fun recreating the image at the Family Equality Family Week celebration. Swipe to see what a difference a decade makes!

Thanks to the Vaughn Woelfel’s for sharing these great photos, and also to Rich for his continued dedication to intended parents worldwide as a fertility law attorney.

It was also the 1st birthday of the baby she carried in her first surrogacy journey 💕 Oh, and did we mention Kaylyn went into labor at dinner with her intended parents while they were celebrating her own birthday last year?! Now that’s what we call a special occasion! Here's to making more amazing memories on journey #2.

"The most important thing in the world is family and love." - John Wooden

We couldn’t agree more! And this #WhereAreTheyNow update has plenty of both. Here’s what dads Victor & Chris had to say about life with daughters Coco (GG baby #841) and Kiki (GG baby #1029) ✨

“Our girls are our life! Coco is 11 and Kiki is 9. They're growing up so fast and have become such strong, confident young ladies who definitely keep us on our toes. Coco is a talented soccer player and Kiki is a great dancer and they are both incredibly funny! While the pandemic has been devastating we have truly loved the opportunity it provided for us to slow down, spend lots of quality time together and create memories with our girls that could only happen when you're forced to spend almost every moment together for an entire year! Having our girls is the most incredible blessing and getting to raise them is a real privilege.”

Today's featured family is truly an inspiration 🌞 We got to know parents Ali and Dan London on their long path to parenthood. Both knew that "parenthood was non-negotiable" for them. Through their love and perseverance, with help from a GG surrogate, their dreams finally came true in December of 2015 when Daisy (GG baby #1382) was born. Here's how she's doing now:

"Our daughter, Daisy, is sunshine personified, our seemingly impossible wish come true," said mom Ali. "Daisy is a 5 1/2-year-old, kindergartner, who calls “making people happy” her superpower. We are forever grateful — and then some — to the incomparable team at Growing Generations and our hero GC."

RESEARCH ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF CHILD(REN) BORN VIA SURROGACY AND THEIR PARENTS' EXPERIENCES Hello! We're working on a very important academic research project about surrogacy, child development and the parents' experiences. We're looking for same-sex as well as different-sex couples who originally planned to co-parent together and are still together. The child must be between 1,5 and 10 years old, born via surrogacy, and genetically related to at least one of the parents. Completing the questionnaire takes about 30 to 40 minutes and you can enter a contest to win an iPad Mini. Here is the link for same-sex couples: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/NewFamily2Europe Here is the link for different-sex couples: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/DKSB8XD More details are available in the flyer attached. If your family fits those criteria, please answer our survey, it'll take about 40 minutes and will be of great help to us in this research. If your family doesn't fit those criteria but you know someone who might, don't hesitate to let them know about this research! If you have any questions at all, we stay at your disposal either on Facebook or by e-mail: [email protected]. If you would rather reach Professor d'Amore, the director of this study, you can do so by e-mail: [email protected]. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Have a great day! The New Family Project Team
It was an absolute delight for Kai and I to catch up with Kim Bergman in Tamarama on the weekend when she visited Sydney to talk to past and prospective Growing Generations Parents. It is around 17 years since I first started the journey with Growing Generations, having relocated back home from London and decided on starting a family and I went straight to Growing Generations as I had been reading about them for years, waiting until I had stopped travelling the globe and the time was "right". My son Ethan is now 16, in his final years of high school, has just started his first job (and this was the only thing that stopped him from being at the get-together as well) and is rapidly growing into a fine young man. It was a great afternoon meeting prospective parents, answering questions, and talking about the excitement that is ahead of them. The experiences so long ago came flooding back to me, and as I told everyone on the day, I couldn't be happier with the outcome. For everyone that knows me, I am not shy in saying that having my son made my life complete, no more chasing happiness in new jobs, new cars, new houses, travel etc. I had found the secret to happiness ! and things only got better after having Ethan, Kai came into our lives when Ethan was 2 and the family was complete. To anyone contemplating taking the step towards surrogacy, as a parent, as a surrogate or as an egg donor - all I can say is make contact, have the discussions with the team at Growing Generations, they made my dream come true. I would like to send my sincere thanks to Growing Generations, and especially to Kim Bergman and Teo Martinez who were involved with my case all those years ago and are still helping build families at Growing Generations today. and last but by no means least, a massive thanks to my wonderful surrogate and egg donor, you both know who who you are. #GrowingGenerations #surrogacy #family #happiness
im hoping i can join such a beautiful experience and give a family such a blessing of a child
Happiest of holidays, Growing Generations! You helped bring these two little miracles in our family 1 1/2 years ago!
Thanks Anna for the invite.
A wonderful organization made up of people who are professional & care.
Sir please contact no. My no is 9533033954
cant wait to have this baby of mine then hopefully be a surrogate through you all :) and give someone else the girft of unconditional love and family
Hi there! I'm a casting producer in Los Angeles working with a national TV show. We are searching for gay couples who are currently pregnant with their first child, ideally looking for couples in the Midwest, South, or Pacific Northwest (rather than a major metropolis), but we are open on location. If this sounds like you or someone you know in this community, and if there is an interest to share the story on national television, please reach out! I would love to hear from you and can be reached via FB messenger or email: [email protected]
Our first book "THE 2 BOYS WHO WANTED TO BECOME DADDIES" will be released end of 2017! Children books with stunning illustrations for LGBT parents all around the world.
