When using an egg donor, it’s not uncommon for intended parents to feel concerned about whether they will be able to bond with their baby. Some people worry that since they have no genetic link to the child, building a connection with their baby will be difficult or impossible.
Missi has been with FSC for 14 years this week! Over the years she has worn many hats – from front desk to Case Manager to Business Development to Recruitment. She especially enjoys her recruitment role because of the empowerment egg donors and surrogates describe when they come to their decision to participate in FSC’s programs. Missi wants her donors and surrogates to be 100% confident in their decision and she takes great care in preparing them for the journey.
There are many reasons why people seek out a gestational surrogate. One of the most common reasons is when a woman is dealing with an infertility issue. For individuals and couples who are unable to conceive, surrogacy can help them create the family that they desire.
Sheryl will be with The Donor Source for 12 years in June 2020. “After all these years, I still look forward to going to work everyday as everyday is a new challenge. I still get excited when I can help someone find that perfect donor and it just works!!”

COVID – 19 Update
Dear Valued Intended Parents, Gestational Carriers, and Egg Donors,
As the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) spreads around the world and throughout the U.S., Fertility SOURCE Companies is actively monitoring the restrictions and guidelines that the CDC and our government have put in place to continually monitor the safety, health and wellbeing of our clients and staff.
For many couples and individuals, gestational surrogacy provides an avenue in which their family-building dreams can become a reality. Surrogacy can be used for several scenarios, including:
2020 will be Theresa’s 11th year at FSC. She finds so much joy in helping to create families: “The best part of my job is conducting the initial meeting between the intended parent and the surrogate. I love seeing their initial connection and hearing their stories. It’s very fulfilling to be a part of their journey.”
Becoming a surrogate is one of the most meaningful things that a woman can do for fertility-challenged and LGBT+ people who are looking to start or grow their families. Every year, hundreds of babies are born with the help of a surrogate. If you’re thinking about becoming a surrogate, you likely have a lot of questions about the process, including whether you would be eligible.
2020 marks Arika’s 15th year with FSC, and through it all, she continues to feel both joy or sorrow with each and every case: “I never get tired of hearing that a pregnancy is confirmed, I get giddy for everyone. The flipside to that is that when a transfer doesn’t take, or pregnancy is lost, my heart breaks. It’s empathy at its finest I suppose!”
As we enter a new year, taking stock of the past year’s ups and downs and preparing for a fresh start, some couples and individuals may be thinking of growing their family through third-party reproductive services — whether through egg donation, embryo donation, surrogacy, or sperm donation.
