Surrogate Picnic: Denver, Summer 2011
On a sunny afternoon in June, our Denver-area surrogates and staff gathered for ConceiveAbilities' second annual surrogacy picnic. Nearly 60 people attended for a day filled with sun, fun, and lots of ice cream!
The event was the perfect opportunity for the surrogates and their families to share their experiences and learn more about the process in a laid-back environnment. The sense of community amongst these amazing women truly sets ConceiveAbilities apart, and we are grateful to each one of them - and their spouses and children - for taking part in such a special journey.
"Being a surrogate is such an amazing and special thing and it is so refreshing to be able to share it with people who have been through it as well, or are about to go through it." -Paula
"It was great to get to know the other surrogates better. We see each other at monthly meetings but it was nice to be in a casual environment." -Rebecca
"By the time I left I had all my questions and more answered. Everyone was so warm and friendly. It made me really excited to work with an agency that cares so much about making this an amazing experience for everyone involved." -Amanda
"The picnic actually convinced me that I want to be a surrogate again!" -Paula
