    My wife and I live in Michigan and are also impacted by these archaic laws. We are currently navigating the gestational carrier process here in Michigan, and it has been a very cumbersome and belittling process at times. My heart goes out to any LGBTQ person living in Michigan attempting to go through this process. I can only imagine the amount of discrimination they may face.

      Hi Chris,
      My husband and I are starting the process of using a gestational carrier, I would love to chat or get any advice you guts may have.

      Thank you, Jen

        Hi Jen, we are more than happy to share our journey. Our daughter was born in January 2014, via gestational carrier. We had to hire an attorney to obtain a pre-birth order, allowing my wife and I to gain all parental rights, and for our names to be listed on the birth certificate as the biological parents. However, even with our court order established, the hospital lawyers tried to block us after the birth. In the end, we won, but it was a very unnecessary stress put on all of us (gestational carrier as well). Do you live in Michigan? let me know if you would like more info.

          My husband and I are just getting ready to start this process. I am wondering where in Michigan you were from and if there was any advice that you may have for us. My friend is willing to have my husband and I’s child but we are not getting any advice from anywhere.

What do you think?
