Surrogate mother, egg donor, and two fathers

Literature and Films

Greta has two fathers and two mothers: Jens and Andreas, surrogate mother Susan, and egg donor Rose from the United States. The gay couple Jens and Andreas from Essen is among the first Germans to build a family through surrogacy. Since surrogacy and egg donation are not possible in Germany, Jens and Andreas returned to the US in the summer of 2013. The plan: Greta should have a sibling. The film follows Jens and Andreas for seven years from Greta’s first birthday to the birth of her brother Henri.
