Counseling wasn't about assessing if we'd be good parents - it was about how we could become parents and how to raise our baby in the way we wanted to.

@burlen completely understand what you are saying about the clinical part! Good on you for knowing how you want to make this happen! That's step 1. There are some good same sex solicitors that can help you with the donor stuff and trying to help protect you from custody issues down the track so maybe find yourself one and make an appointment They can then walk you through the process etc. I can't wait to read about your journey! Very exciting!

Sorry not in a same sex relationship, but I am a solo mum. I went through a clinic as I wanted that child to be 100% mine forever, no legality questions hanging over my head. I'm not sure if a lawyer can draw up an agreement that will stand up in court or not.
Clinics are clinical and there's no getting around that. But for me it was short term pain for long term gain.
Centrelink and births, deaths and marriages can be a bit funny if you get the anally retentive case worker. There seem to be a few of them there!
