About Us

Online meeting is no stranger to us. We first met online, and it was love at first sight! Attending concerts, going on hiking trips, trying new restaurants, and taking vacations were very common activities for us. We got married shortly after and our love continues to grow each and every day. We have big dreams to start a family and we have lots of love to give. We have been trying to have a baby for many years and have explored several fertility options such as IUI and IVF. Unfortunately we haven't been successful so far, but we're very hopeful with Surrogacy and hope you are able to help us. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you.

Calvin was born and raised in Canada. He is an only child, grew up in Toronto and attended grade schools in the city. His parents are very supportive of him throughout his life and in grade school, they often went travelling - especially to the Caribbean. Even though he is an only child, family and friends were always around. Around grade 7, his grandparents moved into the same house and there were often friends nearby. Calvin has always been active throughout his life. He's played multiple sports growing up such as tennis, volleyball, soccer, hockey, swimming, played the viola during grade school, took drawing/art courses outside of school, and took martial arts classes for 4 years. Enjoying good food has been an important part of growing up and a source of many great memories. As well as enjoying the various tasty delights, it brings people together and we often had big family dinners at home. Calvin has since stayed in the city and is in close contact with family and friends.

My name is Amy. I was born and raised up in a family full of love. I lived with my parents, grandparents and my younger brother. My mom and dad are entrepreneurs. They have set up a couple of businesses. They provided me and my brother with ample resources while we grew up. I guess the entrepreneurship also passed down to me and today I have my own educational consulting company. My grandpa is the educational department head in the government. He also influenced me in choosing education as my career. My mom cooks so well and my dad hand made many toys for me and my brother. I had a very happy childhood.

We've tried many years to start a family but unfortunately we have not been successful. Our fertility options start with IUI and we were very hopeful that it would be a success. Unfortunately after several attempts with IUI, we did not have any luck. It was a roller coaster of emotions in going to the clinic and seeing a bulletin board full of baby photos. We thought to ourselves, "One day, our baby will also be on the bulletin board!" After IUI, we had heard about IVF. It was a more costly option but we were 100% happy to try IVF for our future family. We learnt of the many medications, procedures and physical demands of IVF. While we researched all of these aspects in advance, it was also quite the roller coaster emotionally and physically. We tried IVF several times as well, but unfortunately it has not worked out for us. We have nine PGS embroyos with a renown fertility center in CReATe Fertility Centre Toronto with Canada's pioneer of IVF in Dr. Clifford L. Librach, who served as the Division Head of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Women’s College Hospital for 25 years. We're very hopeful on Surrogacy and would love to get to know you.

We love to try new restaurants, exercise, watch new movies and TV shows and stand-up comedy shows, try new cooking recipes, and hangout with family and friends. Calvin loves working in marketing and has been in this field for over 15 years. What he loves most is the variety and challenge of the work, as well as connecting with his colleagues. When he is not working, he is often watching action movies, gardening, exercising or catching up with the news.

Amy loves children. She has been working in the educational field for 18 years. She founded her own educational company 5 years ago in Toronto. It has been a great journey so far. She likes to go to the gym, travel around the world, connect with entrepreneurs, sponsor and support activities to empower girls and women. Reading is her habit. She has had two master degrees in education. She is a life-long learner.

We support our surrogate 100% before the pregnancy, during the pregnancy and post partum. We understand surrogacy is both mentally and physically demanding, and we will be 100% supportive of the surrogate. We will be active in supporting the surrogate financially and emotionally, and we will be there every step of the way in the journey.

We want to be the surrogate's friends throughout the process, and have many wonderful opportunities to get to know one another with our likes as well as our dislikes. We want to share in journey and are incredibly grateful for the help of the surrogate.
