After close to 7 years of trying to create their own family, Jessie and her husband were advised to consider surrogacy. They attended their first Growing Families seminar in November 2017, and joined the ASC community facebook group, along with an introduction. They attended local catch ups and the national conference in Sydney. They met their surrogate at a local catchup (July 2018) and hit it off straight away. They were all Brisbane-based. Jessie had 9 rounds of IVF starting with QFG, however it was July of 2019 before they had a successful embryo transfer. Arlo was born 14 March 2020.
