Surrogacy agency and law firm Creative Family Connections has compiled the leading state-by-state surrogacy law map as actually practiced in the 50 states. Surrogacy law, whether by statute or case law, is constantly evolving and changing. The laws are different from state-to-state, and sometimes even from county-to-county. We know from daily practice that the laws as written can differ dramatically from how the laws are actually practiced. Therefore, it is critically important to arm yourself with knowledge and obtain legal representation to navigate the legal challenges that exist in a surrogacy journey.

Creative Family Connections, a boutique law firm & surrogacy agency in the DC area, has been matching LGBTQ parents to gestational surrogates for nearly 20 years. CFC helps prospective parents of all kinds (gay and straight, partnered and single, domestic and international) build families through gestational surrogacy with rigorously screened surrogates. We serve our clients as both a surrogacy agency and a law firm, by providing surrogate matching services, concierge level support, and legal services – all in one integrated entity.

Among the oldest girls’ schools in the United States, SEM has designed a culture of achievement, scholarship, creativity, and leadership since 1851. Uniquely, we are non-denominational and non-uniform – our culture is centered around our Academic & Social Honor Code. Our independent high school environment allows girls to challenge themselves, express themselves, to succeed in college, and prepare for adulthood.

Our school, on the National Register of Historic Places, is a cozy campus in a leafy neighborhood with world-renowned art galleries, historically significant Olmsted designed city parks, shops and restaurants. Our student residences are renovated grand homes where girls live with faculty parents. Because Buffalo is situated on Lake Erie, SEM teams include sailing and crew.

Buffalo is a one hour flight from New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit and Chicago; and a 90-minute drive from Toronto. Niagara Falls is only 15 minutes away!

At SEM we believe in standards, but not standardization. Non-denominational and non-uniform, our independent high school environment allows girls to challenge themselves, express themselves, and to prepare for success in college and adulthood.

Students who thrive at SEM are ready to widen their perspectives, contribute to community, to explore, to stretch, and to learn.

TK – 8th grade

Presidio Hill School was founded as a place to teach students in a new way—to inspire a lifelong love of learning by treating students as individuals who can shape their own learning, by focusing on the arts and the outdoors, and by fostering empathy and caring connections throughout the fabric of the school.

More than one hundred years later, Presidio Hill School continues to be a place where children permanently fall in love with learning. Our school nurtures 230 students from transitional kindergarten through eighth grade and, with only one class per grade in the lower school and two sections per grade in middle school, we are a community where individuality is celebrated and every student and family is appreciated.

Located just blocks from one of the most beautiful and bio-diverse locations in the world—the Presidio of San Francisco—our students are able to explore the natural world and incorporate the environment into their everyday learning experiences.
