As a surrogacy and egg donation agency we are constantly humbled by the amazing network of formal and informal support systems we work within to help individuals succeed on their pathway to parenthood. The world of assisted conception is truly in an exciting time of growth– law, culture, and technology are in a constant dance of speeding ahead and catching up with one another as all seek to keep pace with the passion of those looking to share their hearts and resources by growing their families.
With an awareness of this in my mind, Fertility Source Companies wants to not only offer family building services to the LGBT community but also to support the community in which those families exist. We’re starting by supporting The Center Orange County (which is the most local LGBTQ resource center to our administrative offices in Irvine) and their upcoming Open House MURAL Party this Saturday, November 17, from 12-6pm.
The Center Orange County’s Open House MURAL Party is a day of community unity, shared space beautification, and collaborative art making. The Center OC, in a collaboration with other community organizations, will be painting a large scale Orange County LGBTQ history mural and is inviting the community (that means you!) to join them to help paint, see The Center, learn some LGBT Orange County History, and enjoy a day of music, food, and activities with your family! The event is FREE, open to the public, and food sales will go to planning more community events!
If you’re local we hope you come out with your family and enjoy the day!
