About Us

Our Mission

While every story of surrogacy, egg donation and adoption is different, there is one uniformity among all cases that Tim, Cynthia and their staff can intimately relate with – an abundance of love that is ready to be shared with a little one.  With this common goal, My Surrogacy Escrow looks forward to partnering with you on this most-rewarding journey.

Tim Sullivan, Co-Founder

Attorney at Law

Tim Sullivan has been practicing law in the Tampa Bay Area for more than 10 years. He is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology and the Florida Adoption Council. 

In November of 2015, Attorney Timothy Sullivan and his wife welcomed the birth of their oldest daughter, Kayla.  During her birth, things went awry and Tim’s wife suffered hemorrhaging that medical personnel had difficulty controlling.  After an 8-hour surgery that involved multiple blood transfusions, the medical team performed a life-saving hysterectomy that stopped the bleeding.

Tim and his wife always imagined that they would have more than one child.  In fact, the thought never crossed their minds that things could happen that would prevent them from having another child “the old-fashioned way.”  But, things happened the way things happened and they were forced to confront the reality of their infertility.

After much thought and consideration of all of the options that existed to them, Tim and his wife elected to grow their family through IVF using a gestational surrogate.  Their second daughter, Emma was born in September 2018 by means of a gestational surrogate.

During this process, Tim decided to Co-Found My Surrogacy Escrow to help other Intended Parents and Surrogates through this process. He knows firsthand the questions and concerns that other Intended Parents may face and has created a company to provide peace of mind to all parties. It is Tim’s number one priority to keep you well-informed throughout the process.
