Being a couple who are struggling with their respective infertility issues and seeking for a longstanding solution for the same, it’s quite hard to plan out all the future things in regards to the same. Moreover, it was not at all easy for a couple like us to start with our infertility issues and that’s where we decided to go ahead with surrogacy as the best option available.
How we got started?
We are based in Georgia where both gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy are legal and there is no such restriction in terms of sexual orientation of the Intended parents as well. Thus, we first started with our surrogacy journey by getting in touch with a surrogate from Atlanta only and cities like Atlanta, Savannah and Athens can said to be the most popular places in Georgia in order to seek surrogacy arrangements.
Whilst we met with our surrogate through a agency, there were lots of questions and concerns which were there in our mind whilst looking for a surrogacy agency in Georgia. The meeting with her was memorable moment and we both were equally satisfied after getting through her medical background and psychological aspects alongside. Although we were quite nervous about the fact whether the surrogate would be able to carry forward the same ethics and morale values like us, we felt contended after getting a sneak through to the background of the surrogate.
Contractual terms and legal agreement
We further hired an attorney for the legal and contractual aspects of our surrogacy journey and my husband brought one of his known attorneys on board for our specific case. This is where it got easier for us to negotiate through the compensation, contractual agreement and filing of the pre boirth order in the court before the birth of the child ( pre- requisite in Georgia for Surrogacy).For all those who doesn’t know much about it, it is a legally binding document which confirms the parental rights of the future child to the intended parents and their name will also be there on the birth certificate as well.
In a nutshell
I and my husband are currently blessed with a baby girl of 2 months and I just want to say that all those couples who are looking to get their dreams realized via Surrogacy in Georgia can really get benefited by the supportive rules and regulations for all the intended parents which is also not subject to one’s sexual orientation.
