Family Source is a proud sponsor of the Men Having Babies Florida/Latin America Surrogacy Conference, which will be held on June 9-10, 2018, at the GALLERYone – A DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel, 2670 East Sunrise Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 33304

Men Having Babies (MHB) is an international non-profit organization that has helped thousands of gay men worldwide become biological parents.

For the first time, the conference will also offer content for Spanish-speaking prospective parents who are interested in learning how to work directly with Family Source or other US/Canadian providers and explain how to avoid the financial and ethical disadvantages of using additional layers of intermediaries. FSC has enjoyed working with many prospective parents from Spain, Latin America, Central America and South America. Mariana Martinez, our Director of Client Development, will be on hand to discuss the surrogacy process with those who speak Spanish.

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.
