When Elad Dvash-Banks, an Israeli national, and Andrew Dvash-Banks, an American citizen, welcomed their twin boys, it seemed like everything was perfect. They were now a family of four and they had so many experiences to come.
Elad and Andrew met in Israel ten years ago when Andrew was there studying. The two fell in love, but since they couldn't get married in either the United States or Israel, they moved to Canada and got married in 2010. They knew they wanted to have children, so they used an anonymous egg donor and a surrogate, and welcomed their twins in 2016.
However, when the couple brought their sons to the American consulate in Toronto to apply for citizenship, things got a little more complicated.
