Here is the story of our inspired beginning . . .
In the summer of 2011, Adam & Frank Golden set out to create the family they had always wanted by embarking on their first journey through surrogacy. Concluding several months of surrogate matching, clinic appointments, and taking careful consideration to select the perfect egg donor, they could proceed to that next big step!
By February 2012, Adam & Frank were finally at the clinic for an embryo transfer that would be a forever life changing event. After squirming through a seemingly long and impatient two week waiting period, their Surrogate tested positive! Nine months later, baby Sophia Marie Golden was born and placed into the arms of her two Daddies.
Frank Golden has a B.S. in Management and over 17 years of expertise in consumer psychology, customer service, and business operations. Throughout his career in various roles Frank was tasked with developing innovative processes to streamline the customer experience. Inspired by the success of his own journey to become a father Frank partnered with his Husband Adam to establish a third-party reproductive consulting agency: Golden Surrogacy. The pair now works passionately to assist all loving couples and individuals who wish to follow in their footsteps.
In Frank’s role as Agency Director, he meticulously oversees the each surrogacy journey in his program from beginning to end. Frank believes heavily that all parties to a surrogacy arrangement some element of chemistry, and be passionately committed to the same pregnancy goals.
Frank served on the Board of Directors for Path2Parenthood, as Vice Chair, and is also a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). In addition, Frank is a professional member with RESOLVE, The National Infertility Association. Golden Surrogacy is A+ accredited with the Better Business Bureau. In furtherance of promoting education for gay parenting options, Golden Surrogacy is a major supporter of the not-for profit organization Men Having Babies; listed as one of their highly rated service providers. Frank has become a leading resource for those who wish to pursue a path to parenthood through surrogacy.
Adam is the Director of Operations, exclusively managing all aspects relating to HR, finance, policy enforcement, and IT infrastructure. He is a graduate of Purdue University, having obtained a B.S. in Information Technology.
As members of the LGBT community, Adam and Frank are the proud parents of their 4 year old daughter, Sophia and newborn son Silas. They have been Intended Parents on three separate gestational surrogacy journeys over a span of 5 years to finally complete their family.
Adam’s unique perspective, having been through the process numerous times, combined with a meticulous eye for detail make him the best advocate for our Intended Parents. He understands the delicate bond between Intended Parents and Surrogates and what it takes to nurture that relationship with mutual respect. Adam eliminates the unpleasant chore of clients having to address financial matters with their Surrogate directly. This leaves our Intended Parents free to focus on the well-being of their Surrogate.
