Agency reviews and comments

Response
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.
no.
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
We felt that agency was very unprofessional and was telling us "what we wanted to hear" instead of the facts. We became very close with our surrogate and she was attacked publicly on a message board because one of the agencies employees did not agree with her asking for advice on late compensation she received. We were advised by our lawyer to remove our escrow from the agency and use an independent escrow company (this was after a confirmed pregnancy). The agency employee then called my husband and was complaining (very immaturely) that our surrogate was trying to turn us against the agency. It was all so juvenile and ridiculous. Besides these personality conflicts, the agency was late to get the surrogate her compensation payments, took a long time to respond to emails and phone calls, and was not very organized with documents, tests, etc. It got to the point where we all agreed that we were better off taking care of things on our own.
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!
We were happy to work with them, Zara (the owner) is very professional but also is a great person. We felt all the time that we were guided by professional and honest people.
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.
