Australian families have been reunited with their babies following the surrogacy clinic scandal that took place on the Greek island of Crete earlier in the year.

According to The Daily Telegraph, three couples and two single mothers brought their babies home from the General Hospital of Saint George in Chania, Crete. This was possible after the babies gained their Australian citizenship.

“It is a blessed relief for the five families after a nightmare; these are innocent victims and, for people who are infertile, nothing could be worse than their dream of a family turned into a mirage,” family and fertility law specialist Stephen Page said.

“To have their child now in their arms must come as an indescribable feeling of lightness.”

This news comes after four months of the families desperately trying to get their babies home after the Cretan surrogacy clinic they used was accused of human trafficking.
