Agency reviews and comments

Response
Being one of the first couples working with AFS, it was a bit of a gamble for us - yet it turned out to be the best decision we've made. Firstly, it felt like working with persons (all former surrogates) instead of an entire industry. Being matched in no time (we understand that today it takes a few months) to the best surrogate we could possibly dream of, and getting answers right on whenever we needed something in the warmest most effective way - we highly recommend working with AFS.
The founder had been a surrogate and is part of a same sex couple. These contribute to the agency's experience and their ability to connect with us—we feel comfortable working with them. We liked the fact that the agency was small yet very professional (we wish that they'd grow and continue to be successful, but not lose that small agency, direct human contact touch). They were always very responsive to us. And were on top of things: when interacting with other parties (medical clinic, insurance, attorneys on both side, etc. and of course the surrogate) and (the two of) us, they were effective in managing appointments and interactions, and struck a good balance between providing gentle prodding to move things along (thanks for all the regular reminders) and giving us space and time for our busy lives. (It does help a lot if the intended parents (or at least one from the couple) were prepared to be very organized themselves.) The surrogate and we both felt we could turn to them privately for questions and concerns—sometimes you need a neutral party, this being an important function the agency serves. We felt that the agency tried to balance our interests and help all parties involved. The relationship between the IPs and the surrogate and trust are developed over time, and in the end it still depends it seems to a significant extent on luck (we were lucky!). We did hear from our surrogate that she felt supported by the agency and support was regular and steady. We felt the agency's price was reasonable.
AFS was our choice. They are very personal and deeply understand and believed in surrogacy. The fact that most of the staff were surrogates themselves meant a lot. The way we see it, a good agency takes care not only in you but also in your surrogate, introducing her to the surrogate community and holds her hand through this huge brave journey of hers and her family. Since the first time we met with Carey from AFS, we immediately clicked. Carey and her agency staff was everything we could have dreamed of. First and most important is that we got an amazing match and that what made our journey a very special life changing experience. Our match was perfect for us, accurate and organic. We connected strongly to our surrogate and all along AFS was there to support whenever needed. AFS were highly professional, always available, knew what to do even in the most complicated situations. Always had tons of patience to every little question we had. Not once did Carey came up with creative ideas for us, she was involved in every single step of the way. It's a long and unexpected journey and you really want to feel that you have a good team behind you that will walk with you all the way through. Someone with experience, common sense, highly intelligent but also very down to earth and practical. Someone strong who will fight for you and will know how to communicate and intermediate through many culture challenges (we're not US citizens). Someone who would be happy for you, who will really be excited for you when your babies finally come to the world. And that is AFS and their spirit, an agency with a huge heart. We feel so lucky and grateful.
We had an excellent experience working with Carey Flamer-Powell and the entire All Families Surrogacy Agency's team. Their professionalism was beyond words, everything they promised was delivered and all with a very personal touch and constant care. We were especially impressed with the help we got during the process of selecting the GC, negotiations with her, the truly amazing GC care and support, monetary updates and full transparency - all were wonderful indeed. We highly recommend All Family Surrogacy agency and wish all future dads a wonderful journey with skilled captains like we had. Best of Luck! Us
Very friendly to the IP and extremely helpful for the GC. They support and assist in a lot. Create a supporting group for the GC which is very important. Quick to respond and a lot of the time proactive about tasks that needs to be done.
This agency was one of the best decisions we did during the process, back then we were one of the first ones for the agency so the matching time was very good, they matched us with the best surrogate, the service and attention in general was very good and attentive
We were very happy with All Families. They were incredibly supportive and always there when we needed them. We were their first complete journey so we felt pretty special. We were always treated like family and not just a business client. Carey is a workaholic in a good way and was immediately responsive to all our concerns. I would give complete ten stars in all categories except that because we were their first clients I think they were still finding their feet in some areas so they were not completely sure on things like how best to go about newborn insurance. But that said, they worked their butts off to figure things out for us and in the end it worked out. Very very happy we went with AFS.
סוכנות הפונדקאות שלנו AFS היא סוכנות שיודעת לעשות את החיבור הנכון בין ההורים המיועדים ולפונדקאית שלהם. יש להם הבנה איך להתאים גם את הפונדקאית למרפאות השונות והם מאוד ישירים ואמיתיים. יש יחס אישי ברמה שמנהלת הסוכנות הותיאה רישיון להשיא כדי ללחתן אותנו בארה"ב כשהיא שמעה שאנחנו רוצים להתחתן בארה"ב. הניהול האישי שלהם, הדאגה לכך שלא ייחסר אף מידע בתהליך ושמירה על קשר רציף בכל הקשור להתנהלות הכספית לאורך כל התליך הוא פשוט לא אמיתי וברמה שבאמת לא מכירים. ממליצים בחום. Translation: ​Our agency AFS is an agency that knows how to correctly match surrogates with intended parents​. They are straightforward and honest and know how to match surrogates with clinics as well. They have a real personal touch--so much so that the agency's director went and got certified to perform marriages when she heard we wanted to get married in the US, just so she could officiate our wedding. They personally manage your journey and make sure that you have all of the information necessary throughout the process. They are in constant contact with you about your escrow account and the financials. The service is done so well, you've never experienced anything like it. We highly recommend AFS.
We highly recommend All family surrogacy! Very professional, did a great job in matching us with an amazing surrogate. Also our surrogate is very comfortable working with AFS which is very important for us !
