The inspiration for Same Love Surrogacy came from personal experience…the experience of three gay dads who created their families via surrogacy and egg donation, as well as a four-time surrogate for international and domestic gay intended parents.
The three agency owners -- Brad Spencer, Jay and Danny Cook-Wong -- set out to create a surrogacy agency tailored to the unique needs of LGBTQ intended parents, which they found missing among the traditional agencies they had personally experienced.
Informed by more than 40 years of cumulative experience with surrogacy and donor services, as well as their own perspectives as LGBTQ parents and surrogate to LGBTQ parents, Same Love Surrogacy is a global leading egg donor and surrogacy agency based in Los Angeles and Portland with surrogates throughout the United States.
The agency is committed to making each and every experience as streamlined, informed and stress-free as possible.
And intended dads can feel confident knowing that the SLS team will stick with you throughout your entire journey!
“They were so responsive, respectful, and just wonderful to work with. We were happy with our surrogate and how SLS was with us every step of the way.”

Brad and his husband have twin boys conceived through IVF with the good fortune to have a family member as their egg donor and an exceptional gestational carrier. It was Brad's personal journey that helped build a full-service agency in 2014 that is owned and operated by three gay fathers. Brad is globally known for providing best-in-class services to LGBTQ individuals seeking to become parents through assisted reproductive technology. He has successfully helped LGBTQ individuals build their families, including HIV-positive gay men. Brad works closely with the leading IVF clinics, attorneys and insurance companies in the United States.
Danny and his husband Jay's personal experience creating their family via surrogacy and egg donation helped them envision a world-class agency with full transparency and exceptional service. Danny was born in Hong Kong and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 3. Family has always been of utmost importance to him, and he has always known that he wanted to be a dad, but never thought it would be possible. After making his dream a reality, Danny turned his passion for family building to assisting other LGBTQ individuals with the creation of their own families.
Jay and his husband Danny's personal experience creating their family via surrogacy and egg donation helped them envision a world-class agency with full transparency and exceptional service.

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Fitness Management and an Associate's degree in Nursing. Jay combines the unique blend of his management and medical experience to fulfill his passion assisting the LGBTQ+ community to create families of their own.
