we are in a same sex relationship. My partner and I have been together for 12 years. Towards the end of last year we decided to start growing our family. We have a family member who is going to be the egg donor, and our plan was always to head overseas to find our surrogate.
However, as we started to look into the process we became aware of the laws changing in NSW where we live, which has now made commercial surrogacy illegal.
we have looked for loopholes, attended conferences and support groups, and even spoken to a lawyer for advice, but going overseas poses a lot of legal risks.
One suggested we move interstate, however, this is not an option for me and my partner due to our close bond with our family and friends.
We have approached a few friends and family if they could be a surrogate for us, however they are all still in the process of having their own children or in the planning stages.
Someone suggested we try this website, so hoping anyone out there that may be able to help us with our desire to have children.
