We are headquartered in Chevy Chase Maryland. However, we work with surrogates from all over the country and intended parents from all over the world. The Washington DC area may be our headquarters, but our team members live across the United States, including Connecticut, Colorado, California, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Oregon.
Creative Family Connections is a boutique surrogacy agency composed of strong, passionate, highly educated women who are experts in their field. When searching for a surrogacy agency, you don’t need to find one close to where you live. At CFC, we work with surrogates all over the country and offer concierge-level support. We’ll come to you in-person at one of our DC metro offices or conduct a videoconference to meet you and relay all the state-by-state surrogacy legality information when you’re ready to start your surrogacy journey.
At Creative Family Connections, we’re not just a surrogacy agency — We’re also a law firm that updates information about state-by-state surrogacy laws on a regular basis. Many surrogacy industry professionals and surrogacy agencies across the US rely on our surrogacy law map for up-to-date surrogacy legality information.
A graduate of cum laude Harvard Law School, Diane Hinson, founder and owner of Creative Family Connections, has paved the way for surrogacy and reproductive rights. Since 2001, CFC’s team of passionate women and surrogacy experts has connected intended parents to surrogates to start families, inspire hope, and change lives forever.
Although teleworking allows us a greater degree of flexibility in our communication across time zones, we also appreciate the importance of face-to-face team interaction whenever possible. Should one of our team members be located near you or the IVF clinic, please reach out as we would love to see you.
Creative Family Connections is both a surrogacy agency and a law firm. . . all in one integrated company. That makes us uniquely qualified to help you through your surrogacy journey, whether you are considering being a surrogate or want to build/expand your family through surrogacy. There is no national law in the US, so we will help you navigate the state-by-state, and sometimes county-by-county, laws in the US – to ensure that the parents have all the parentage obligations and corollary rights related to the child once the baby is born. Our surrogates want to change the parents’ lives, but they do not want to remain on the birth certificate or be signing documents when it is time for the child to enter school. We work to get the legal correct from the beginning so that can happen. We created the original The US Surrogacy Law Map™ as a resource for the surrogacy community. You will see it has been copied, but we did the original research and have the knowledge on which it is based.
We are headquartered in the Washington, DC area, and our lawyers are members of the DC, MD, and VA legal Bars. Our team members, all of whom are passionate about our mission to help prospective parents build families, work remotely – allowing us to better serve our surrogates and intended parents. With team members located across the United States, we build families that span the globe.
We are small enough to connect with you one-on-one, and to have the entire team rooting for you throughout your journey. We are large enough to have the depth of a team that can serve you throughout your journey. For example, every journey coordinator has a back-up so both surrogates and intended parents will have continuity of support if your journey coordinator is on vacation (and we believe that we all need to pull back and take breaks).
We also have the depth of knowledge and experience that comes from having been in the surrogacy field for more than two decades. Most members of our team have a personal connection to the world of family building through IVF. We have many former surrogates and egg donors; we have parents who suffered the heartaches of fertility; and we have members of the LGBTQ community. All members of our team are passionate about our mission: the belief that everyone can build a family.
We are, in short, a team of women who are diverse, inclusive, and both immersed in and passionate about assisted reproduction and assisted reproductive rights.

Our surrogates are the heroes that enable our intended parents’ lives to be changed forever. Many of our surrogates also agree to do sibling journeys for their parents, a testament to the fact that our system works – only happy surrogates and parents do sibling journeys.
Our overarching goal is to make every journey as happy as possible, as stress-free as possible, while also being legal and ethical. The fact that we are an integrated company that is both a surrogacy agency and law firm – a rarity in the surrogacy world — shows we are committed to achieving this goal for you, our surrogates and intended parents.
We are all here to help you at any time – just a phone call or email away.
