All Kinds of Families
In her latest blog, Suzanne Rico talks about a Diana, a girl (now a grown woman) whom Suzanne has mentored since she was 9 years old.
Suzanne, the mother of two boys after multiple fertility struggles, writes. "I carried Griffin myself after two failed IVFs. A surrogate mother carried Adrian after three more failures. And Diana came to me by the grace of some higher power — a power that must have known how much I really needed a daughter."
We don't always know in what way we will be gifted with a family. More and more, creating a family does not happen in the traditional way. There are traditional families seeking to build a family in a non-traditional way, as well as non-traditional families such as gay and lesbian couples — all navigating the world of adoption, egg donation, sperm donation, embryo donation or surrogacy.
