If it was as easy as just having an egg removed and put into another woman I would do it but you have to take a load of hormone treatments for months. There are websites where you can sign up as a donor/seeker but in Australia you aren’t allowed to accept payment for it so who would go through that for a stranger?

Wow, that reminds me of the shonky looking “We buy houses Call Jess 0419xxxxxx” signs I have been seeing around the place. They are on torn, not cut scraps of cardboard scrawled on with black marker and stuck on light post and signs around town.

Who bothers to use ‘whom’ anymore? Especially incorrectly?!?! Bloody showoffs!

It’s kind of reminiscent of a skater saying “hey guys, watch this gnarly trick!” followed immediately by a faceplant into the concrete. Simultaneously hilarious and wince-inducing.

…Do the kids still say “gnarly”?

Yeah dude, totally

I’m sure they have. These are not decisions taken lightly.

Adoption in Australia is hopeless. It takes something like 7 years to be allocated a child from overseas, by which time the prospective parents will be too old to qualify as adoptees.

Meanwhile kids languish in orphanages overseas.

Good luck to them.
I wonder if they have given the thought of adoption a chance as an alternative?

Can’t read it on here, so will go down tomorrow and have a peek!

I agree with sepi. I hope they find someone. It is a big ask and I don’t think I could do it for them.

Good on them. I hope someone can help them. Funny place for such a sign though.

this cracks me up. a couple of yokels willing to shell out for a donor, maybe neither of them can get laid. I guess they will need photos for the family albumen.

Given that they’re a couple it’s kind of implicit that they *can* get laid.

i hope they find someone. it is a big ask, and must be something they really want.

“We are a socially responsible and loving married couple …” yada yada yada. Reminds me of the personal ad I saw a few years ago: “Married couple requires similar for swinging times. We are middle class, effluent”. Couldn’t have put it better myself.

Maybe they could poach some off the black market, assuming the message doesn’t get scrambled.

Bloody showoffs! Wouldn’t want them raising children!

Naw, whom dost I kid? If they’re willing to stick an unnecessary M on the end of a word just in case it needs one, they’d be great parents! Someone give them an egg!

seems a somewhat “interesting” thing to put up on canberra posterboards….

I have a mate who has a box of them but he wont let them go for anything less than an ounce.
