Children’s are integral part of any ones family life and today there are many options available for people who got fertility issues, single parents and people who are gay. There is still not much acceptance in many parts of the world for Gay couple and in such situations gay surrogacy seems to be very feasible solution. Surrogacy is an option for gay men who wish to have a biological connection to their child. In a gestational surrogacy arrangement, one or more embryos would be created in an IVF cycle, using donor eggs and the individual or couple’s sperm.
Adoption and surrogate parenting are the only two options available for gay male parents who want to perceive the journey of parenthood. Adoption offers a couple the opportunities to give a baby who already exists, a loving home that the child may not have otherwise enjoyed. Surrogacy is an option for gay men who wish to have a biological connection to their child. In a gestational surrogacy arrangement, one or more embryos would be created in an IVF cycle, using donor eggs and the individual or couple’s sperm. Surrogacy offers a couple the options to be biologically related to the child, to cause this particular genetic child to come into existence, to actively participate in the pregnancy and to be recognized on the original birth certificate as the legal parent of the child.
Both adoption and surrogacy process allows the gay couple to enjoy parenthood. Adoption is not an easy process for gay couples as the process is very long, all the countries do not allow this option for gay couples and above all very few percentage of children’s are offered for gay adoption. Age also plays a major role which prohibits the intentional parents from adoption.
Such parents are not in ease with adopted child because of their genetical history. Secondly the intended parents always live in fear of the changing mindset of the mother of the child in crushing their healthy and loving hopes. Thus in light of all the positive options egg donation, sperm donation and surrogacy is the only reliable counter for gay who prefer genetical relationship over adoption. Hence surrogacy becomes the preferred journey for gay couples who want to enjoy the fatherhood.
There is much to learn about Gay surrogacy that the prospective gay parents must keep watch before entering into this type of arrangement. When the gay couple wishes to get the ball rolling towards obtaining a surrogate to carry a child for them, they need to consider following important steps before deciding for surrogacy.
Consider surrogacy versus other options like adoption, foster care, shared parenting.
Consider Traditional Surrogacy (TS) versus Gestational Surrogacy (GS). These options vary considerably in process, cost, duration, legality and likely future relationships with the surrogate /egg donor. In TS, a surrogate is carrying a baby conceived through artificial insemination using the sperm of one of the intended parents. In GS, a carrier is impregnated with embryos created through IVF, using the couples' sperm and donated eggs. The donor of the egg can be known, unknown from the family or even a friend.
The most important thing is to decide is that who is to be biologically related to the child. The options that a couple can consider are One partner will become a parent for the first pregnancy and the second partner will parent the second child or should you mix your samples before the insemination /fertilization or One partner can be genetically connected by choosing a relative to be an egg donor and the other partner then donates the sperm. If you are doing IVF, you can fertilize half of the eggs with each sperm sample, so that the paternity of each embryo can be known, and you can choose to implant embryos from both dads.
Determination of surrogate is equally important. Surrogate can be either your relative or friend or from the surrogacy agency. If the surrogate is through a surrogate agency then both the partners will be matched with a surrogate.
