On Sunday, August 21st, 2016, Family Source Consultants staff, Intended Parents, and Surrogates gathered together for the agency’s 2nd Annual Family Celebration Picnic. The event was held at Gilbert Park in Downers Grove, Illinois and featured fun, games, music and good food. Dozens of people came out to celebrate all the miracles the agency has created over the past decade! The event was an opportunity for Surrogates to connect with the Intended Parents they helped as recent as a few weeks ago to years ago. Intended Parents came from the Chicago area, surrounding states and even as far as Spain and Italy to be a part of the celebration. FSC Surrogates also brought along their children to meet the children they carried for nine months for their Intended Parents. Thank you to all who came out to be part of the event!
