Hi There! We are Alex (35M) + Kate (30F), a married couple living in Mercer Island, WA. We’ve been together for 9 years, married for 4, and both work full-time in the Tech industry.
We are looking for a GC; someone located in the PNW (WA/OR) is preferred as we are COVID-conscious and would prefer not to risk anyone’s health by flying frequently in the coming months.
Outside of work, we spend a LOT of time with nearby family (weekly ‘Big Sunday Dinners’ with my parents, brother, SIL, 6YO niece and 3YO nephew; plus monthly visits to my in-laws on Bainbridge Island). We also love Geocaching, cooking, and playing board/card/strategy games. Personality-wise, I’d describe us both as ‘outgoing introverts’. – easy to get along with and love spending time with close friends and family, but also love a weekend relaxing in PJs on the couch. We are open and honest; there’s no question I’m not willing to answer. We are truly an open book!
WHY WE ARE LOOKING FOR A GC:
I’ve struggled with chronic back/spinal issues since I was a teenager, and had a pelvic fusion surgery 3 years ago. As a result, I’m unable to physically carry a pregnancy per Doctor’s orders. Fertility-wise we do not anticipate any problems in terms of successfully retrieving viable embryo(s) – but we need your help with the remaining part of the process :).
As mentioned above, we are family-oriented and have a huge local support system. We’ve both always wanted to be parents and are very close with my local niece and nephew. Watching them grow up from baby to toddler to 1st grader (!! how time flies) has really cemented how excited and ready we are to do the same with little ones of our own.
We are fairly early in the GC process / surrogacy journey but are extremely serious about moving forward and are prepared to start with the legal and medical next steps; however, we are hoping to find ‘the one’ first so we work together throughout the process.
We are willing to be flexible on timelines, especially if our GC is not local to PNW – due to COVID we may prefer to wait for an in-person meeting, but we can work out a commitment arrangement to work together in advance if needed.
-Must be in a stable living situation and have had at least 1 healthy pregnancy
-Must have own surrogate-friendly medical insurance
-Must be willing to undergo a background check (yourself + any adults living with you)
We will offer competitive compensation and are willing to negotiate flexible contract terms as required.
Please feel free to reach out and get a conversation started!
