After close to 7 years of trying to create their own family, Jessie and her husband were  advised to consider surrogacy.  They attended their first Growing Families seminar in  November 2017, and joined the ASC community facebook group, along with  an introduction.  They attended local catch ups and the national conference in Sydney. They met their surrogate at a local catchup (July 2018) and hit it off straight away.  They were all Brisbane-based.
