Since having their own children (Mia 9 and Ava 8) Amanda & Brent have met many couples who have had a far harder journey conceiving than they had which led them to the question – if we could help, would we?
They have been friends with Michael & Terry for over 12 years. When they first started talking about creating their own family Amanda & Brett realised that this was an opportunity to help and so a first surrogacy journey began.
