December 2014 Holiday Support Group Gatherings and Support Events


candleThis December, we are celebrating the holidays, offering support, and learning more about the legal aspects of surrogacy cycles. Our regular Circle of Hope Support Group sessions in Syracuse and Albany will occur with a special holiday theme, and both groups are welcoming many new members after we have had multiple positive pregnancies recently move on from our center. This is the perfect time for you to join, as many other new clients will be testing the support group waters over the next few months.
Please note that we ask you to bring a wrapped pair of new socks to exchange with another client at our Circle of Hope Support Group sessions. These socks will be exchanged with the intention of them being worn during appointments, as a reminder of support and love from your fellow clients.
