We know that choosing to be a surrogate is never just about the financial compensation.
Surrogacy is not merely an amazing reward and selfless act of giving; it is an incredible opportunity for both you and your family!
From paying off personal debt to starting a college fund for their own children, women who choose to be a surrogate with A Host of Possibilities have used their compensation for numerous ventures that help improve their families’ quality of life. Some have used the funds they received to move their family out of a rental and into their first home. Others have used it to help them attain their degree without needing to take out student loans or to pay off student loans already accrued in their past.
There is no end to the opportunities afforded to you and your family, with the compensation you receive, for helping others who have run out of options. In fact, the owners of A Host of Possibilities used funds received through surrogacy, to help start their own company so that they can continue to help others for many years to come.
A Host of possibilities does not believe that every surrogacy match is the same. Therefore, gestational carrier based fees (the amount of money a woman is paid to be a gestational carrier for intending parents) can vary. We understand that some surrogates will need to be reimbursed for certain expenses that arise where others will not. Accordingly, we will review your requested base fee and expenses with you to be sure that they are reasonable and fair to both you and the intended parents.
