1 month till takeoff

It is now just 1 month until I depart on this trip of a life time.  Visas have been finalised, flights and accommodation are confirmed, and I have meetings set with incredible people.  I will be meeting with counsellors, doctors, nurses, lawyers, migration agents, facilitators, and most importantly surrogates and commissioning families.  I can no longer tell if I am mostly excited or terrified by this journey that is now just around the corner.

And in case it wasn’t clear enough to me why I am about to embark on this Fellowship, today I found this lovely article which reminded me of the lengths that Australians are taking to have their families. http://www.sbs.com.au/topics/sexuality/explainer/delivering-dream-gay-dads-surrogacy-journey
