Family Creations prides itself on providing highly personalized services for egg donors and future parents. Goldman and Alkire met while working for another donor agency, and decided to combine their areas of expertise into their own initiative (Goldman is seasoned in working with parents, while Alkire specializes in consulting donors). "The challenge in the very beginning would have been to run both sides of the program and do it well, so that's really why Julia and I joined forces," Goldman says. They are anticipating a 160 percent revenue increase in 2008, and are set to open a second California office next year.
