ARR (Alternative Reproductive Resources) is thrilled to announce that 2017 marks our 25th Anniversary!!   Since 1992, Robin von Halle and Mary Ellen McLaughlin have been pioneers in the field of Third Party Reproduction.  We were the first Egg Donor agency in the Midwest and one of the first in the country.  We were also among the first to start a comprehensive Gestational Surrogacy program in the U.S.  We are so proud to have helped to bring over 2,000 (and counting) babies into this world through our egg donation program and over 350 (and counting) babies through our Gestational Surrogacy Program.  Our stellar reputation has earned the trust of our clients, doctors, psychologists and lawyers who work within our unique field.  Our hearts and souls are with our clients every step of the way through their Egg Donor and Gestational Surrogacy journey.  We are also proud that ARR’s lawyer, Nidhi Desai, was instrumental in creating the legislation for the Illinois State Gestational Surrogacy Statute and recently helped to modernize the Illinois Parentage Act to recognize children born of assisted reproductive technology.  As we celebrate our 25th year, we are honored and proud to have helped build families all around the globe and look forward to helping many more families to come.
