“There is no love that is more deep and true, than the love for your child.” – Anonymous

LGBTQ Parenting info for gay dadsAt Extraordinary Conceptions, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to be a parent. Since opening our doors in 2005, we have helped numerous people in the LGBTQ+ community around the world become parents through our egg donation and surrogacy services.

Our team stays current on LGBTQ parenting laws so that you can feel safe knowing that we will guide you through every step of your journey to parenthood and help you find the egg donor and/or surrogate mother that are best for your family.

Because of laws in certain states that only recognize parentage between married, heterosexual couples, we will show you surrogates in states that are established with “surrogacy friendly” laws that will protect you as a single parent or non-traditional couple. Our team is happy to connect you with experienced attorneys that specialize in family and reproductive law so that you can make the safest decisions for your family. If you haven’t made a final decision about the IVF Clinic, let your coordinator know so that she can recommend clinics based on your unique needs.

Our secure database currently have over 3,500 available egg donors and surrogates for you to review and choose from. All of our candidates have completed our rigorous admissions process to better ensure their health and safety. This includes their online profiles, personal interviews, background checks and more. We strive to make the process easy and straight forward so that you can focus on becoming a parent.

To get started, simply click on the button below to submit your Future Parent Application. After that you will have instant, FREE access to our exclusive egg donor and surrogate database. Within 24-48 hours, one of our experts will get in touch with you to answer your questions and help you take the next step in building your beautiful family. If you would prefer immediate assistance, feel free to call us directly at (760) 438-2265.

We are proud supporters of the LGBTQ+ community and we are happy to share any and all of the resources that we can to help people become parents. Make sure you check out the links below to some great websites and organizations that may be extremely helpful in your journey to parenthood.

Here are some tips from an Extraordinary Surrogate who has given birth during this difficult time. Even though this was not the ideal situation or the way she planned her surrogacy birth, she says she loved it so much and wants to do it again. ❤️

Our 1st surrogate to give birth during this time of uncertainty was able find the beauty of how she changed someone's world for the better during a time where the world is changing by the hour. Thank you Briana for sharing your story & uplifting us, as this is also another blessing from you. ❤️ “Some of you know this, some don’t. On Sunday I delivered a baby. A baby that I grew, carried, & protected for the last 9 months. A baby that was so wanted by her parents that they tried for her for years, & underwent many trials along the way.
I was a surrogate. Their bun, my oven. I never posted on social media about it, until now. I also didn’t tell many people unless it happened to come up, unless they asked, or until it became obvious. So many people want to offer their opinions & I wasn’t up for explaining myself, & didn’t feel like I needed to. Most people that knew were incredibly supportive & some of you deserve the biggest thank yous ever. J, B & A especially were the hugest helpers. And of course Andy Carder who has been nothing but supportive.
It has been the most incredible experience. The beginning was scary, not knowing what to expect, the procedure, being unsure if it was actually going to work, the medications. It was emotional, & nerve racking.
The pregnancy was the hardest, most exhausting one I’ve had. I was so sick some days I couldn’t get out of bed but to do anything but throw up. I had migraines, morning sickness, hip pain, caught every little bug known to the city & still had my own 3 kids to take care of. And the end was terrifying. I was nervous. I was anxious. And as with any birth, I was in pain. But we did it.
That precious baby girl & I made it through our journey together.
I grew her & she grew me.
I was so excited to see her parents meet her & I’m so glad I was there to see her mom hold her for the first time. They are so in love. I may not have changed the world but I changed their world. I’ve never been happier for someone I didn’t really know. But I’m so so excited for their family.
Surrogacy has been an incredible journey. I’ve learned to lean on people, help people & love in a way I’ve never known before. I’m so happy I did it.”

EXTRAORDINARY CONCEPTIONS CELEBRATES
15 YEARS!

15 years ago, Mario Caballero and his wife Stephanie founded Extraordinary Conceptions after having their twins via surrogacy during a time when there was not a lot of information about this option to build families. Their mission was to educate all parties involved; intended parents, egg donors and surrogates, and help them navigate their way to successfully create their families. The twins are now 18 and will be heading off to college and Extraordinary Conceptions has proudly helped thousands of people around the world achieve success through surrogacy and egg donation. Cheers to the first 15 years and we are look forward to growing and assisting thousands more!

We are sheltering-in-place with the kids and homeschooling them. Each week, we come up with a motto for the week to help us with motivation and meaning in our lives. As part of our routine, I read my daily meditation to them. Monday's reflection read: "If you can imagine it, you can achieve it.
If you can dream it, you can become it" - William Arthur Ward.

As a leadership coach, I am always working with clients to help them uncover their authentic selves and their true desires. I help clients deconstruct the years of learning and messages from the outside world and go internal to figure out what they really want for themselves. Part of our work revolves around conjuring up peak moments & happiness from the past, visualization of what they want, and dreaming big about their future.
What are your dreams? Can I help you see them?

Super easy kids cauliflower, carrot and peas with cheese sauce. Perfect for those fussy little ones who refuse veg. Great for the adults too.

You can see the step by step guide in my highlights.

I hope you have had an amazing day!
