Agency reviews and comments
Family Source was wonderful to us. Zara's compassion and assistance was priceless.
Muy humanas y profesionales. Un gran acierto
They were wonderful throughout the whole process and were always there to assist when needed.
Solo decir, que fuí muy afortunada de encontrar a esta agencia y a sus magníficas profesionales que hicieron mi proceso mucho más fácil y en el que me sentí muy apoyada en todo momento
We are a man and woman couple and we had no need for an egg donor because we had our own embryos. We felt very comfortable and supported by our agency
My surrogacy agency exceeded my expectations and they are the reason why I have my beautiful baby.
Family Source were there for us from the very start, after years of IVF, miscarriages and surgery we didnt think we'd be able to have a family, we are from the UK and finding 'real people' that cared about us made us believe it was all possible. They were there for us every step of the way and we are still in contact 2 years later, they are excellent!
Solo tenemos buenas palabras para ellas. Su profesionalidad e implicación en el Proceso hicieron que todo fuese mas fácil. Mantenemos un contacto continuo con ellas, en la actualidad estamos esperando a Nuestro segundo Hijo y nos están ayudando Mucho.
