Personal Stories

Grandparents at last!

Our gay son and his partner have a gorgeous baby boy and we are now proud grandparents.  An overseas egg donor was sought, along with a gestational carrier.  The emotional journey was intense until the birth, without any complications to the gestational carrier and our grandson.

The main positives are that our grandson has two wonderful daddies, two lots of grandparents, great-grandparents, heaps of aunties, uncles and cousins and the huge love and support of all our family and friends.

Our son has a wonderful gay-friendly doctor who will be our grandchild’s doctor too.  In addition, the local child care health nurse has been extremely helpful and supportive, and another important point is that our son has the full support of his employer.
