A British couple will never be able to conceive on their own, the wife of the pair was born without any reproductive organs.  Through their familes' generosities, they now have a daughter.  Donor eggs were offered by her sister, and the husband's sister was their surrogate.  Here is a link to their story:

I'm so happy that this worked out for them :)

What are your thoughts on their story?  Do you think it's easier on both sides to have a link with the child?

Such a wonderful family, it just goes to show that it doesn't matter how you get the baby, all that matters is that there is a loving family surrounding it. I'm not sure if it would be easier or harder, probably depends on the person. I'm sure it helped the sister that carried the pregnancy that she already had her children, and knowing that she will still have the child in her life.
