Documentary features our workshop, interview with surrogacy kids

Surrogacy kids interview
At the October NY Men Having Babies workshop we hosted a TV crew filming for the Portuguese “Frontline” documentary show. The show aired on November 30th, and indeed it includes a nice clip from our meeting. They show also includes a rare interview of 11 year old gestational surrogacy kids (children of Ron and Greg from our group) about their origin and family makeup.
The program also has an interviews an egg donor and a surrogate at the CT Fertility clinic, and shows Dr. Doyle performing an egg retrieval and an embryo transfer. The video below has excerpts from the 30 minute show (the parts here are mostly in English). I think it is very informative, especially for parents who think about how to tell their kids about their origin, and what might kids think about having two fathers when they grow older.
The full 30 minute report (much of the rest is in Portuguese only) can be seen at http://www.rtp.pt/play/?tvprog=25508&idpod=67705.
