A gay dad is born

May 27, 2015
For a member of the gay community, becoming a parent involves many factors, yet it’s a wonderful and emotional journey.
The dream to become a parent through gay surrogacy process (gay or straight parent) connects us immediately to our parents, they serve as an example of good parenting and also an example of them not doing a great job raising us (in our view). It also connects us to our desire to be better parents for our children.
While gay surrogacy process of becoming parents is a positive and exciting
experience, it can also be very stressful, tense and nerve wrecking. Many who go through the process of gay surrogacy worry about the well being of the embryo, the success of the process, and the safe return home when going through the surrogacy process abroad.
It is well known that many parents (men / women) develop depression and anxiety during the gay surrogacy process and the pregnancy, some times before the baby is born, or after the birth. This happens to both men and women. It is also known that planning ahead can actually assist and decrease the chance to develop symptoms of depression and anxiety before and after the baby is born.
As you (gay or straight dad) prepare for your journey, it is recommended to get as

I always knew I wanted to have a family. I wasn’t sure how many children I would have, who I would marry, where we will live. However, I knew that I would have a family. My own family.

Unlike others who choose to have a family, for me it was challenging. You see, since childhood, I have always known that I was gay. I knew that before I knew what was the meaning of it. What my life would look like. It was who I was, and I never tried to change it or ignore it. I accepted it since the day I realized that’s who I am.
The fact that I was gay, and the fact that I was determined to have a family, these 2 facts found it difficult to co exist. I wasn’t sure how it would work, but I wasn’t going to give up on my dream.
Like many other people, I went to school, graduated, travelled the world, fell in and out of love, experienced, learned. Lived. At some point I was in a relationship and felt that I was ready to tie the knot. Just like anyone else. I was married for a couple of years, and my husband and I started talking about having kids. Just like anyone else. As opposed to the days when I was growing up, it seemed like today we actually have options to live the dream. To become a family. To bring our own kids into this world and raise them as one family. The option, by the way, is called gay surrogacy. How simple. How complex. I was

My daughter came back from school looking a bit confused. Although I was in the middle of a day dream about a beautiful Chanel purse that I saw in the mall today, I was determined to find out what it was that she quite didn’t manage to figure out. After all, the child is a genius (she takes after her father).
She starts telling me about her after school adventures. She met a boy today. (Oh no, she is only 8 years old!) Her new friend showed her his photo album. There was a picture of his dog (I hope she won’t ask me to get one). And a picture of his room (he doesn’t share a room with his siblings). And a picture of his new red extra cool bike (I can’t compete with THAT). And a picture of his dad (ok babe, you also got one!). And hid other dad. Is this the part where I get to explain about gay surrogacy? Or perhaps I should explain first how babies come to the world? The birds and the bees, yes, not so difficult to explain, but two male birds having a baby bird? How does that happen?
It got me thinking. A long long time ago this is how it worked: a guy and a girl would go out, date each other for a short, or a long period of time, have a big (or small) wedding, most likely buy a house, and start a family. You know, a mom, a dad, two or three kids. A family. And it was like that for a long time. In a lot of places. All around the world. So in the case that you were single, most l
