Dwayne and his partner Shane were just two ordinary blokes looking to create family. Together a decade before they started talking kids, they posted on a surrogacy forum announcing their search. Their post caught the eye of Amelia, an experienced young surrogate, looking for another couple to carry for. Within a short time they had agreed to work together, forming Team Tango.
