What Is OPTS?

OPTS - The Organization of Parents Through Surrogacy is a national surrogacy support organization for both couples through surrogacy as well as surrogate mothers. We are the country's oldest and only non-profit support group for surrogacy, offering information, networking, support and advocacy in your state. Person-to-person contact with experienced parents and surrogates is yours with a membership. So is online support through our Listserv, a packet of newsletters, our resource guides, book lists, regional meetings, legislative information and advocacy in your state. Join the hundreds of successful families that belong to OPTS. Applications are available on our Membership pages.

OPTS is not affiliated with any surrogacy practitioner, agency, lawyer, etc.

We offer our support services to all regardless of where they might be in the process or how they have chosen to proceed. We receive calls daily from infertile people seeking information about surrogacy.

OPTS functions as a community resource. We receive referral calls from other organizations and have spoken before various commissions, boards and groups.

We are available to the press for accurate information, fact- checking, comment and interviews. OPTS publishes an annual newsletter, holds regional meetings and has an extensive telephone support network. In several cities, we have women's groups which meet regularly.

We welcome you to join us and receive the support of your peers who are also going down the surrogacy path.
