Family Source is a proud sponsor of the Men Having Babies South Surrogacy Conference, which will be held on March 3 & 4, 2018, at Austin Marriott South, 4415 South Interstate Highway 35, Austin, TX 78744.

Men Having Babies (MHB) is an international non-profit organization that has helped thousands of gay men worldwide become biological parents. After two successful events in Dallas, their 3rd Texas conference will be offered in Austin, featuring practical and personal peer advice and opportunities to meet a wide range of leading providers from the USA and Canada. The Gay Parenting Expo will feature both surrogacy and adoption / foster care resources.

Based on feedback from attendees the program has been extended by starting earlier on Saturday, allowing MHB to add several sessions, and allocate more time for Q&A and socializing.

We are proud to note that the Austin conference is once again receiving wide support from leading LGBT establishments and groups in Texas including the Dallas Voice, Rainbow Roundup, Cathedral of Hope, The Handsome Father, and the Teddy Bear Party.

In-depth programs will offer insights from the latest studies about contemporary gestational surrogacy, insurance, budgeting, medical and psychological aspects of surrogacy. Proceeds from sponsorship and exhibiting fees will benefit the Gay Parenting Assistance Program.

While the event is organized by gay parenting organizations, non-gay prospective surrogacy parents are welcome and will no doubt highly benefit from the practical and personal peer advice offered by community activists, medical and legal experts, parents and surrogate mothers.

Admission is $25 per person in advance ($35 at the door – space permitting) and includes meals and refreshments throughout the weekend.
