1st Post

Almost this time last year, hard thoughts fell on how we as a same sex male couple would achieve parenthood. After 9 years of being together, we had to come up with something!

We looked at adoption and slowly talked about it........somewhere in the back of our minds surrogacy came into play but then just filtered it's self out again.

In Jan 2009, we met with the Social Worker from the Black Adoption Team of a well established adoption agency based in London. She gave us positive pointers and we left the meeting upbeat.

However, just after 4 weeks along came a hurdle that we had to cross.......Reveal our Sexuality to the world! (well almost).

To this day, the hurdle still sits in our way of adoption......

12 Months later and surrogacy crept back to the front of our minds.....We picked up from the research we had done previously and began casting our eye over the numerous agencies in India. We looked at the established ones and then the new emerging ones...to say the least it's been a hit and miss.

We think we have narrowed our choice down to one agency now and we have begun further talks on the application process.

So here it goes, our 1st step to parenthood via Surrogacy in India.

We'll, hopefully take you on the journey with us.........now sit back and throw your support our way!
