Recently, NBC News posted an article on the emotional experience of becoming parents as same-sex male couples. There are many ways that gay fathers enter their journey into parenthood, including egg donation, surrogacy, adoption, and some became parents while in previous heterosexual relationships. No matter the route they took to create their families, these men all had one thing in common — a deep desire to become fathers.

Finding Support in The Community

Brian Rosenberg and Ferd van Gameren, two gay dads, pictured here with their son and two daughters, started the website GaysWithKids.com. This online community offers support to gay men navigating fatherhood.

“When people outside of the gay community see gay…and lesbian families, they see we are exactly the same – we go to the same school, we go to the meetings after school, we take our kids to sports or play dates,” explains Rosenberg. Van Gameren added, “[Heterosexual parents] look at you with your kid and immediately think, I get that.”

Explaining My Two Gay Dads

As children born through surrogacy grow up, they start asking questions about where they come from and why their families are a little different from everyone else’s. Learning how to understand their own journey and how to explain their two gay dads to friends starts at home with you.

At Family Creations, we believe our job is an ongoing mission that helps guide you from the very first stages of pregnancy through discussing surrogacy with your child. We can recommend surrogacy literature that children can relate to and even help intended parents feel more comfortable discussing such an intimate process with people outside of the family.
