A Letter from Our President

On behalf of all of us at NAFG, I want to welcome you to our site.

I know that you have found us for a very important reason – because you hope to expand a family or give of yourself to help others realize their dream of having a child. These are highly sensitive – often private – pursuits and they deserve the attention of experienced professionals.

I started NAFG because I felt that a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to surrogacy and egg donation would be a great benefit to carriers, donors, and intended parents alike. The practitioners with whom we are affiliated are all well-established leaders in their respective fields, and represent the very best of the scientific, medical, legal and mental health communities. In addition to an impressive base of knowledge, all have a warm and confident manner and are very approachable.

To function at a high level, a fair amount of selectivity is necessary. We screen our gestational carrier and egg donor candidates extremely carefully and apply stringent protocols to the evaluation process so that only the most qualified, most likely to succeed carriers and donors are accepted into our program. We also spend a considerable amount of time with prospective intended parent(s) – educating them on the process and addressing their concerns, in order for them to have a full measure of understanding before they decide to start with us. Once a part of the NAFG program – either as carrier, donor, or intended parent – you can expect conscientious and personal attention from everyone here. My role as president is to ensure that we always provide the best possible experience for you.

I wish you well.

Sanford M. Benardo, Esq.
Co-Founder and President
