Meet The Team

Get to Know CFC

At Creative Family Connections, our staff functions as a team. Our individual processes are all just a part of one greater whole – the surrogacy journey. While we may each play a different role in your journey, we do not function independently. We are all invested in each and every case, and we are all here to help you at any time.

The Creative Family Connections team spans the US to better serve you. Our team members live in ten states, and we bring varied personal and professional backgrounds to our roles. On the personal side, we have been and are surrogates, egg donors, intended parents, adoptive parents, parents, adopted children, and parents who have suffered the excruciating loss of a baby. We are women of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community. On the professional side, our backgrounds include law, education, social work, public service, banking, finance, and reproductive health care.

We truly believe we can best serve you as a unified team. It is part of our culture and part of our promise to you.

Meet Diane Hinson, Owner & Founder

Diane is the owner and founder of Creative Family Connections. She founded Creative Family Connections on the principle that “everyone can build a family.” Diane grew up in a family of six children, so family has always been an important beacon for Diane. She began her family as a single mother, so she has always championed the non-traditional, e.g., single and LBGTQ+ parents.

A cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School and a member of the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland Bars, Diane’s diverse background and hands-on management approach allows her to offer guidance and support to Intended Parents and Gestational Carriers from both a legal and personal perspective.
