Newbie here.
I’m basically copy & pasting my posting from Introductions here! Can’t hurt, right? 
 

Hello all! 

We are a married gay couple with bi-national citizenship. I (Dave) am a Canadian citizen, born and raised, and my partner (Henrique) is a U.S. citizen/resident (born in Brazil, also an Italian passport). 
We are looking to start a family through surrogacy.  Our home would be Belleville, ON, Canada.

We have a known, related egg donor, but this process in temporarily stalled by COVID travel restrictions.

We have made connections with Create IVF and Hope Springs Fertility Law.

I have been looking into gestational surrogacy agencies in Canada, and also considering independent matching options. I’m a little hesitant to commit to an agency financially without knowing when our IVF might be possible. 
We would love to connect with potential gestational surrogates, who may wish to share our journey, either independently or through a specific agency. Our timeline is ASAP! But realistically, 2-3 months after border restrictions are lifted. 
Also, if other IPs are currently working with a surrogate who has expressed interest in future journeys, we would love to hear from you! 
Thanks,

Stay safe!
