yes a single want to be dad!

Ok from the start without rambling on all the details

looked into adoption many years ago ... doors closed

looked into co parenting here in Australia ..... too many legal issues

looked into surrogacy in the US and Canada ...... to many legal issues & very expensive

Was put onto the surrogacy process in India about a year ago by a client of mine and the journey begun

Months and months of research, questions, educating myself, trawling the internet and discovered a wealth of information

Joined a few surrogacy forums some great some not so great

asked many questions, sent many a email internationally and just as many phone calls

got in touch with quite a few Hospitals, clinics, and a few medical tourism agencies

received contracts and info from most

a few months ago i settled with the services of Dr Shivani at Phoinix hospital in delhi

chose my egg donor (mother of 2)
29 year old who gave me 26 eggs 16 of which were A grade

Flew to india with a dear friend of mine Vicki and also another friend Jason doing the same


transfered 4 embryos into my 29 year old surrogate (mother of 2 widow)
a perfect text book procedure

THE DREDED 2 WEEK WAIT........................

sad to say my first attempt turned out to be a negative result

12 embryos left

now waiting on advice from Dr Shivani

i hope to try again in the next few weeks
