MEET THE TEAM

Amy Larrabee

Chief Executive Officer

Hello, my name is Amy Larrabee.

I am a believer in our almighty savior, Jesus Christ, wife of almost 16 years, mother of 4 amazing kiddos, (plus a beautiful surro-baby girl) health enthusiast and entrepreneur. God placed surrogacy on my heart at the young age of 12. I knew it would be in my future but wasn’t sure when or exactly what I was in for!

After 3 children and thinking my family was complete, God told me to purse surrogacy. I was immediately perplexed, as I couldn’t find any agencies that lined up with my Christian morals. I found myself excusing or ignoring my principles because I so clearly heard God tell me to become a surrogate. I trusted in Him and joined an agency, even though they were pro-termination. It was a weird feeling… Internally I felt a little sick to my stomach but I kept having faith that this was Gods plan, and he would take care of me. Within just a few short weeks, things went very sour with the agency and with no warning, my match ended abruptly and in a very negative way. I was blindsided, crushed and heartbroken! How could this end? I was obeying God, after all and he told me to do this.

I don’t think I could have ever survived the next week without the support of my amazing husband, Ernie. I kept telling him that if I owned my own surrogate agency, I would treat the surrogates like gold, and I would provide a safe and moral place for them to selflessly give life to others.

One morning after wallowing in my agony for almost a week, he confidently and cheerfully looked at me and said, “Why don’t you start your own Christian surrogate agency?” Instantly, God said “Yes!“ to me and I blurted out, “Okay, and it will be called, Surrogacy by Faith!” Just like that, Surrogacy by Faith was born… May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

With any new business, there are ups and downs but I always felt at peace like God took my hand and lead me down the path of exactly what I needed know, do and learn to be the best Christian surrogate mentor I could be. I am forever grateful and humbled by this experience. I truly believe God‘s purpose for my life was to help create families, one surrogacy at a time, through the grace of God. People sometimes ask, if I ever feel like I’m playing God. My reply is always the same and no, I definitely do not. He has the ultimate control over every situation and I am super thankful at the success he’s allowed our surrogates and parents to have. God is so good!

After delivering our surrogate baby in February of 2015, God softened my heart towards having a fourth child. My husband had always wanted another one but I had close that chapter in my mind considering our third child was already 10 years old. Fast forward a year, I delivered our fourth child in the fall of 2016 and what a miracle she is. I couldn’t imagine our life without her!

In my spare time (haha) you will find me watching my children play sports, snowboarding, boating or riding horses. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and I am an open book. I’ve poured my heart and soul into Surrogacy by Faith, and I hope and pray to be a blessing to all who embark on their surrogate journey with us! Love and light, in His name! ~Amy~

Wendy Todd

Operations Manager and Third Party Coordinator.

Hi, my name is Wendy Todd.

I started working for Surrogacy by Faith in 2015 determined to be the best in the surrogacy industry. My devotion to helping families grow was my motivation to join the Surrogacy by Faith family. I have worked as the Intended Parent Coordinator, Surrogate Intake Manager and was quickly promoted to Operations Manager, overseeing all of our surrogacy cases. I quickly discovered that helping others build their families can be just as gratifying as building my own. My commitment, enthusiasm, reliability, and professionalism has been a huge factor in the success of all our journeys.

Prior to starting my own family, I spent 6 years as an Entrepreneurial Executive. I managed sales, marketing, operations, personnel and merchandising at the district, regional and corporate level for both start-up and established retail, franchise and manufacturing companies.

I live in Orange County with my husband, and two children. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, swimming, traveling, and occasionally indulging in reality TV!

I jump out of bed with a big smile on my face each morning because I have the best job in the world. I get to help people create their families. From that first conversation, to matching, transfer, pregnancy and finally delivery. I create bonds with these people/families, and I feel honored be a part of this process.

Amy Fuccile

Surrogate Coordinator and Blog Specialist

Hi there!

My name is Amy Fuccile, and I am very blessed to be the mom of my two precious kids, a wife to my amazing husband, and mom/babysitter/accident cleaner-upper to our brand new little family member, our puppy named Bear

I grew up in San Diego, attended college in Ohio at The Ohio State University where I majored in Communications for 3 years, and then graduated from the University of Redlands with a degree in Business Communications. I am now back in Southern California where my family and I have made Orange County our home.

I am a shameless caffeine addict, chocoholic, and wannabe wine connoisseur who loves to redecorate my house at the sight of pretty new pillows, but most of all, I LOVE my life as a wife and mom, and treasure all of the amazing, unexpected, heartwarming, and craziness that it has to offer! You will most likely find me shuffling between football practices, dance rehearsals, lacrosse games, gymnastics class, and endless trips to the beach and In-N-Out, but I absolutely love it and would not want it any other way!

I truly believe that our children are our greatest gifts, and the amount of joy that my kids and family bring to my life is something that I will cherish forever and be forever thankful for. It is for this reason that I wanted to be a surrogate, and was so blessed to have the opportunity to carry a baby for a family in 2018 thanks to Surrogacy by Faith. It was such a joy to help this family with such a priceless gift and I will never forget what an amazing experience it was. I am so thankful to bring my experiences and strengths to the Surrogacy by Faith team so that I can help others experience that same joy!

Alisha Knudsen

Escrow Management Coordinator and Financial Specialist.

Hello, my name is Alisha Knudsen. I am a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, an aunt, but most importantly a daughter of Christ.

I was born in Red Bluff, Ca and raised in Redding, Ca. I grew up being very active in church, and I believe from it, God gave me a heart for children. I dreamed of the day I would get married and have children of my own.

During my high school years I spent my summers being a nanny for a family on Cape Cod. It was during these summer adventures that I met the man of my dreams.

After graduating high school, I moved to Boston so we could be together, and our relationship could continue to grow. In the summer of 2005 we were married and moved back to California in the Spring of 2006.

We made Cottonwood, Ca our home and decided to start our family. We were (and are still) blessed with 3 beautiful, healthy children, 2 boys and a girl. They are our world and fill each day with joy and adventures!

We experienced a great loss after having our second son. I was pregnant with our 3rd son, but The Lord called him home to Heaven before we were able to hold him in our arms. Our hearts were broken, but we hold onto the hope we have in knowing we will one day be able to hold him in our arms in Heaven.

The Lord blessed us shortly after with our beautiful daughter- what joy she brings to us each day! We realize how truly blessed and fortunate we are to be able to have 3 healthy children.

The Lord placed surrogacy on my heart and showed me the amazing blessing it is to be able to give the gift of life. I have completed 2 journeys with Surrogacy By Faith and I am forever changed by those experiences.

After my last journey, I knew I wanted to be a part of this company. I didn’t feel the journey with the company was over just because I had completed the surrogacy. Amy had grown to be so much more to me than just an agent. She became a friend and someone I admire in the way she runs her business, and in her life. Her heart and faith had made this agency family to me. I am truly honored for the opportunity to be able to work alongside these wonderful women, and to be a part of such an amazing company. It is a true blessing to be able to work for a company who, through God’s grace, is bringing families the best gift ever… the gift of life!
