The Surrogacy Podcast Episode 10: Mike and Glenn. Mike and Glenn are gay dads that pursued surrogacy overseas initially. They his a few roadblocks and ultimately did not have any success. They eventually turned to Australian surrogacy – and at the time of recording were eagerly awaiting the birth of their daughter. They met their egg donor, Cass, and their surrogate Kate, in the Australian Surrogacy Community on Facebook.
