The fifth annual Men Having Babies Brussels conference was an incredible success. Not only did Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists have the pleasure of attending and presenting for the 5th year in a row, but one of our very own Worldwide Surrogacy families had the pleasure of sharing their story with the world.
During our time at Men Having Babies Brussels 2019, we were able to give attendees an exclusive opportunity to meet one of the incredible families we've helped make possible through surrogacy.
Henrik and Balazs are an Amsterdam couple who are currently building their family through surrogacy with Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists. They and their surrogate, Molly (who happens to be one of our amazing Surrogate Screening Coordinators), attended the event to share their story personally with other potential parents-to-be.
Local Brussels publication De Morgen was happy to hear their story and share it with a broader audience.
The feature-length story frames the current surrogacy landscape in Brussels, using Molly, Henrik, and Balazs's story to help give exclusive insight into what exactly a successful surrogacy journey looks like. Here's a brief excerpt:
Note: The following excerpt has been roughly translated from the original Dutch version. As a result, the quality of the spelling/grammar may be compromised.
Dutchman Henrik Lillin and his husband are expecting their first child in January. Molly Corcoran, their surrogate mother from Connecticut, works for an agency and is also present in Brussels.
Corcoran says she has worked in a fertility clinic—and now an agency—for a long time. "I saw surrogate mothers everyday, so for me, surrogacy was a normal thing." She already has three children herself—being finished with your own family is ideal for anyone who wants to be a surrogate. This is her second time as a surrogate. "It’s a great feeling to be able to help someone have a child.”
