Help us get our baby registered before the 30-day window expires

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to read this. We are a gay couple who are legally married in South Africa. Our beautiful baby boy was born on 14 February 2019. Unfortunately, it breaks our hearts to say that the Department of Home Affairs is refusing to register our baby even though he was born via a High-Court ordered surrogacy. The staff at the Middelburg Home Affairs office have been homophobic and uncaring towards us. We have submitted all the required documentation as stated on the website but they are stil refusing to register our beautiful baby boy. They are making excuse after excuse as to why they cannot register our baby. Every time we go there, they request a new document. Please help us by signing this petition! We beg you for the sake of our beautiful baby boy! If you know somebody in the South African government or the Department of Home Affairs who can help us, please get in touch with them for us. Please share this with all your friends and family. We really need YOUR help!
