‘She’s protecting herself but can hear a lot of gunshots outside’ – Rosanna Davison invites her Ukrainian surrogate to ‘live with us’

Rosanna Davison has said she is “worry sick” about her surrogate’s safety in Ukraine and has offered her and their four-year-old daughter a safe place to live in Ireland.

osanna had already given birth to her daughter Sophia (2) through surrogacy in November 2019 before having twins Hugo and Oscar (1) naturally.

As attacks on Ukraine’s major cities escalated in recent days, she has been in touch with her deputy and said the news is very worrying.

“I’m worried sick to be honest,” she told Independent.ie.

“Our surrogate lives in Kherson with her little girl and her family, which has been documented as having been taken over by the Russian army. I spoke to her yesterday and she was safe but very scared.

“She has been hiding but can hear a lot of gunfire outside and they still have running water but the food is slowly running out. I invited her to bring her daughter to Ireland to live with us, but she doesn’t think it’s possible to leave the city now because she’s completely surrounded by Russian troops. It doesn’t seem likely that she can escape at the moment. Wes and I are very upset and concerned for her safety.”

She went on to say that her excitement pales in comparison to the fear and dread her proxy is going through.

“The only way I can keep in touch is with her, and she knows that if she’s able to leave the country, she has a safe place to come to,” she said.

“We care for her very much and of course we wouldn’t have Sophia if it hadn’t been for her. She is an amazing person.”

Like everyone around the world watching the Russian invasion, she was “shocked and devastated” by the situation in Ukraine, saying that Kyiv is an amazing city with “wonderful people”.

“We got to know beautiful Kyiv very well in 2019. We made friends there and will always have a connection to it as it is Sophia’s country of birth,” she said.

Last month, she celebrated the three-year anniversary of her trip to Kyiv to begin her surrogacy journey with egg retrieval. She and Wes spent about seven weeks in total in the city as they began their journey to becoming first-time parents, and it’s a place they hold dear.

“During the ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval process in February 2019, we stayed close to St. Sophia Cathedral and decided to name Sophia to maintain a connection to her city of birth and to remind us of our challenging journey to get her” , she said.

Rosanna and Wes are one of several Irish families who have offered to open their homes to the fleeing Ukrainians. Latest estimates assume that up to a million people, mainly women and children, were forced to flee.

Irish Families Through Surrogacy have been in touch with some of the families trying to help their surrogate mothers come to Ireland to seek refuge.

It is believed that up to 400 surrogate mothers from Ukraine could find new homes here after the Justice Ministry eased entry requirements for women from the war-torn country.

The changes mean children under the age of 16 can enter the country without a passport if they are fleeing the Russian invasion.
