Becoming a dad again

I am delighted to advise that on 19 July, my husband Mitchell and I had a baby daughter, Elizabeth, via surrogacy in Brisbane.

Both our daughter Elizabeth and our surrogate are safe and well. Our surrogacy journey was a domestic surrogacy journey. Mitchell and I were able to stay at the hospital. Elizabeth was under our care in our room from the moment she was discharged from the birthing suite. We were very lucky. Not everyone is so lucky.

We are truly blessed. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of spirit of our egg donor and our surrogate.

Within a few days of her birth, Elizabeth featured in this ABC story.
