Richard is married to altruistic surrogate Annita Pring and has two gorgeous children. Molli is their biological daughter and their son Witta they adopted from Thailand so he appreciates that families can be created in different ways. He lives on the mid north coast of NSW. He has supported Annita through three surrogacy journeys for both a hetero couple in QLD and two same sex couples here in Sydney. There were many highs but also some devastating lows along the way. Richard did an amazing job as mediator between Annita and the intended parents with issues such as costs, the logistics of travel, couriering of frozen breast milk and the emotional ups and downs during the whole process.
