Building Families was founded in 1991 by Carol Weathers, a successful surrogate herself, with the vision of helping couples build the family of their dreams. BFI’s program is often described as a “boutique” as our style of management warrants that we are a part of every moment of the GCs and IPs journey. BFI’s staff are women that have turned to third party reproduction to build their own family or to help another family grow. We are proud to be one of the oldest GC/IP operated Surrogacy Programs in Southern California. We work closely with a select few leading professionals in the legal, medical and psychological fields who collectively with BFI, have built more than a thousand families through surrogacy. Having access to the best professionals in this industry is the best and safest way to build one’s family through third-party reproduction.
