The Surrogacy Podcast Episode X: Costa. Costa and his partner Ghaith pursued surrogacy in Canada, and recently welcomed their daughter Panayiota into the world. Surrogacy is altruistic in Canada, and many intended parents from Australia have lovely and rewarding surrogacy journes in Canada. Cosa and Ghaith’s story is not unique, but Costa’s views on a surrogacy are particularly lovely and heart-warming. He and Ghaith are strong in their convictions that Panayiota’s story be one of love, and that she should know that she was created with love and is surrounded by a community of people who love her, including her birth mother.

Rather than spoil it for you, have a listen and get ready to smile all day.
