Frederick W. Gaston’s passion for the law is a family tradition.  Frederick is a third generation attorney, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. He moved to San Diego from Alabama after serving his Country in the U.S. Navy as a Chinese linguist. After graduating from Chaminad University in Hawaii with a Bachelors of Arts in Economics, Frederick went on to study at Qingdao Haiyang University in Qingdao, China. Subsequently Frederick attended the University of San Diego Law School. Shortly thereafter he opened Gaston & Gaston, APLC. Frederick was drawn to the law surrounding third party assisted reproduction after being contacted by an international couple that had issues with a surrogacy arrangement in California.  After assisting the Intended Parents through one of the most difficult times of their lives, Frederick was certain he could utilize the experience he gained in resolving civil and business disputes to help future Intended Parents and Surrogate Couples enjoy a positive experience. Since devoting a large part of his practice to international fertility law, Frederick has prided himself on bringing a new level of professionalism to the industry. Frederick has assisted hundreds of Intended Parents over the years. He finds great joy in helping people who may not otherwise be able to have children complete their families. His background in mediation and civil negotiation gives Frederick and the Gaston & Gaston team the unique ability to anticipate issues long before they occur, thus making for an all-around more pleasant and successful surrogacy arrangement.

Tracy Armato

Surrogate Liaison Coordinator

Tracy@Omegafamilyglobal.com
My passion for surrogacy started as a teenager. We had a family friend who was a surrogate for another family friend. It was then that the concept of carrying a child for another couple was introduced to me and I just knew when the time was right for me, this was something I wanted to be part of. I have been in the Third Party Reproductive Industry for over 12 years. My love of surrogacy and egg donation began many years ago when I was a surrogate myself. My own surrogacy experiences have been with both domestic and international couples. Each of my surrogacy experiences where different from one another, yet each brought me the fulfilment of enriching lives. Prior to joining the team at Omega Family Global, I had built my experience and knowledge working with other agencies. I found what was lacking from the other agencies was the personal connection between agency, intended parents and the surrogate. With Omega Family Global I have been able to share my experiences to develop an agency that focusses on people, professionalism and quality services. My professional background in surrogacy has allowed me to develop working relationships with IVF Centers throughout California, other parts of the U.S. and worldwide. I have managed thousands of successful surrogacy cases from match to birth. My commitment to surrogacy is unsurpassed since it is my passion.

Daisy Castro

Medical Coordinator

DC@omegafamilyglobal.com
My name is Daisy Castro and I am the Surrogate Liaison and Medical Coordinator for Omega Family Global. I have had the honor of being a Surrogate Mother to two beautiful boys and I am still in contact with these two families. I was also an egg donor to help another couple have a new family. These experiences are something I will be proud of for the rest of my life. I feel those unique and individual personal experiences give me the compassion, understanding and patience to guide new Surrogate Mothers and Intended Parents through the process. I have worked in another surrogacy agency for five years prior to joining the Omega Family Global (OFG) team. I love working for OFG, because we are, and continuously strive to be, different from any other agency. We provide ongoing support to each and every one of our Surrogate Mothers. We are there to guide you through the process and want to make sure your journey is amazing. Our staff will do our absolute best to make sure you walk away from this experience truly knowing the joy and change you were apart of. I love sharing my knowledge and educating new Surrogates on what the process consists of and what the commitment timeline is. Becoming a Surrogate is a wonderful life choice, but making sure you have all the information to make an informed decision is what is most important to me.
