‘In the eyes of the Irish state I do not exist.’

Without a Doubt is the emotional story of one couple’s dream of having a family, a damning indictment of the inadequacies of the adoption system, and the urgent need for surrogacy legislation in Ireland today.

Without a Doubt is the compelling and heartfelt story of Fiona Whyte and Seán Malone’s quest to have a family together in Ireland. Their sweeping efforts, first with IVF, then adoption, and finally and successfully through surrogacy with a clinic in India, expose the shortcomings of the current Irish legal system relating to these deeply emotional issues and their heart-breaking human consequences.

Written with profound honesty, Fiona and Seán’s personal story follows the couple through their extraordinary journey that led, ultimately, to the successful birth of twins. Their story highlights the dire need for new legislation to provide for and protect Irish parents and their children born through surrogacy, and explores the complex legal, ethical and social issues created in this legal vacuum.

Without a Doubt is the emotional story of one couple’s dream of having a family, a damning indictment of the inadequacies of the Irish adoption system, and the urgent need for surrogacy legislation in Ireland today. In Fiona’s own words: ‘In the eyes of the Irish state I do not exist.’ Only now, after three years, has Fiona been recognised as the legal guardian of her twins in what is a landmark judgement in Irish legal history.
