Dear Intended Parents and Potential Surrogates,
Welcome. I’m so glad you’ve taken the step to learn more about working together with ARTparenting — and I’d love to tell you my story…
I’ve been working in assisted reproductive law since 1993. I started this practice with the belief that providing personalized attention and the best care was the only way to work in such a sensitive field. With a back ground in psychology and biology, and in the law, this profession became much more to me than simply acting as an attorney. I created a practice in which, in addition to providing necessary legal services, I help navigate the complex road of surrogacy and other third-party reproduction for my clients, and for the incredible women who help them become parents. This is about so much more than just putting people together for family building purposes. This is about people helping other people; it is about the whole journey together; it is about partnership and trust, on every level. We are here to help everyone involved to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Today, we are still a small firm that provides focused, personalized attention. We choose not to be bigger, because small, intimate, and personal is how we feel tiny new lives should come into this world.
Your care, comfort level, and trust are my top priorities as the professional guiding you. From the moment we have our first conversation until the day the baby goes home, I am there to guide you.
Thank you for taking the first step to learn about ARTparenting. Please let me know how I may use my expertise to help bring about a little miracle — the birth of your baby.
I assure you, if you choose ARTparenting, your care will be my first priority and your interests will be handled with the highest standards of integrity.
Meryl B. Rosenberg, Esq.
Meryl made what seemed to be a daunting process simple and easy. I will never be able to thank her enough for guiding me through this.
