Dr Boisselier said :" When the lesbian couple from Holland came to us, it was their wish to have a baby bearing the genes of both of them. At this time, we could only offer them to have a baby with the genes of one them and the other mother would carry the child. It has been their way to share the act of giving life. We have received a phone call from them today and they are trusting us to have a baby now with both of their genes. Clonaid team is ready to try this new endeavor.

The Clonaid team has received many requests of that kind over the past 4 years and will welcome all of them now.
