    Hey Rainbow rd
    Just wondering how long you had to wait to begin the process? you seem very well versed in this topic! and can I ask which clinic you went with?

    This is just curiosity on my part, but I don't follow why the counseling requirement would seem less applicable to a lesbian couple than a hetero couple? Am I missing what the intended purpose of the counseling is? I'd have thought it was around whether you could accept a non genetic child as your child, whether you accepted the boundaries (ie whether donors accepted they're not parents, for example) and the usual screening to weed out people who should not be assisted to become parents. Similar to what adoptive parents go through, I'd have thought.

    Hope you don't mind my curiosity. I wish you every success with having a baby.
