How does it feel being dads?
Jamie : It’s been a whirlwind!
Lawrie: Yeah, definitely a whirlwind but we’re still loving every single day.
Jamie: I think it will still be a whirlwind even when she’s four or five!
How did you find a surrogate?
Lawrie: Through a surrogacy agent in America - they introduced us to her and we developed a relationship over a few years. We were lucky to have a really positive experience - it was lovely to go over there and meet her family and share this together. It brings it all back to family. She’s an amazing woman and took everything in her stride. She constantly amazed us with her kindness, her bravery and her care for herself during the pregnancy. Ultimately what she did for us was incredible and we won’t forget that.
What makes your family special?
Jamie: Obviously we’re not the first gay couple to have a baby and we won’t be the last but we just never thought it would happen for us and now, we’re two men and a little lady!
