Welcome to the Family!
We cordially invite all Family Creations surrogates from the past, present, and future to join our very cloak and dagger, Secret Facebook Surrogate Support Group. We created this group for you to share stories and support one another- maybe even make a friendship or two!
Your privacy is important to us, which is why we’ve taken measures to keep this group discreet. The “secret” setting is Facebook’s most private security level for groups.
Benefits of secret groups:
1) Not searchable
2) Not viewable to non-members
3) The group will not show up on your Facebook profile.
The first step is to become FB buddies with our CEO, Julia Alkire.
Why, you ask? Our private group was created under our CEO’s FB page, and since our FB group is “secret”, we’re only permitted add Julia’s “friends” to the group**. Once you’ve been added to the group, you can unfriend Julia. She won’t take it personally. 🙂
**If you would like to join the group under a pseudonym, please create a separate Facebook account and talk to your Case Manager about adding you to the group.
One more thing!
