About Roots Surrogacy
Roots is a truly one of a kind agency. We are a professional and trusted mid-sized surrogacy agency that connects and supports individuals, couples and surrogates in creating families. We exist because we believe that no matter what your circumstance, everyone should have the opportunity to share in the gift of parenthood.
We create opportunities to build and grow families through methods that only a mid-sized agency with our unique backgrounds, talents and passions can create. Our promise to you is to be accessible, transparent, compassionate, and accepting. Roots will be there for you each step of the way to support and guide you throughout your journey.
We understand that surrogacy is not always someone's first option in creating a family, but we are dedicated to making it an incredible part of your path to parenthood. We maintain our commitment to being ethical agency that acts with transparency and integrity. Together we foster trust with each surrogate, parent, and family we serve.
We envision of a world where parenthood is possible for all who seek it. We are intentionally a mid-sized agency where high standards are equally matched with our personal connection to every intended parent and surrogate. Due to current laws and legal restrictions, surrogacy is still not an option for everyone. As such, we are dedicated to being a beacon within the industry by extending parenthood pathways to anyone regardless of geography or sexual orientation.

Following her own journey through infertility, she transitioned her practice into the area of Assisted Reproductive Technology where she represented clients in the area of fertility including intended parents and surrogates. After enduring several years of fertility treatments, miscarriages and late term pregnancy loss, she became committed to helping ease the burden of those going through what can often be one of the most challenging periods of their lives. As a co-owner of Roots Surrogacy, she dedicates her work to helping people build and grow their families.
Cassie and her husband live in the Bay Area and have one son through IVF.
Brooke Kimbrough is a mother of four children and a surrogate of one. She is a founding partner of Roots Surrogacy. A former agency owner, Brooke enters into the arena with the experience of both international and domestic surrogacy. Professionally, she has been a part of journeys that vary from HIV+ parents to concurrent sibling journeys and everything in between. Brooke brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and personal connectivity to the agency.
In her personal journey, Brooke was a gestational carrier for a single, gay dad in San Francisco. Throughout the process, she found an incredible amount of joy in helping another family, but also in the ways surrogacy changed the perspective of her own family. She remains close friends with her intended father and enjoys spoiling her little surro girl when they see each other.
Brooke has a degree from Occidental college with a background in International Human Resources and Business Management. She is a member of SEEDS and ASRM and is an active ally in the LGBTQ community.
