Help Us Overcome a Surrogacy Setback

Donation protected
Friends, family, and kind-hearted supporters,

 We are reaching out amid heartbreaking and unexpected difficulty. Nearly $50,000 of our escrow deposit with Surrogacy Escrow Account Management is unavailable and SEAM has not made payments to our surrogate since late May. We now believe that our deposit has been lost or stolen by the owner of the escrow company, Dominique Side. Unfortunately, because Dominique remains in hiding and no one else can access SEAM’s accounts, so much remains unknown.

 The escrowed funds supported the surrogacy journey we embarked upon in hopes of growing our family. With this loss, we are now facing the gut-wrenching reality that we cannot afford to fairly compensate a surrogate. We’re asking for support raising the $50,000 necessary to continue our surrogacy journey. Every dollar raised will go directly toward surrogacy expenses, bringing us closer to the dream of having another child.

 Our transfer is scheduled for August 2024, but this process is currently on hold until we can secure the needed funds. While we understand federal and local law enforcement are investigating SEAM’s conduct, all signs suggest recovering even a portion of our lost money could take years.

 Your support means the world to us, and we are immensely grateful for any assistance you can provide. Please consider donating and sharing our story with others. Together, we can turn this challenging moment into a new beginning. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

 With heartfelt gratitude,
The Gallozzi-Larson Family
