Society has come a long wayin finally providing fertility and family building benefits for same-sex male couples and single fathers by choice. But this journey can be complex and confusing. Which is why, for our third installment of our Journey to Fatherhood series, we pulled a panel of experts to give an overview on how to build family with a surrogate, donor eggs, and adoption. We also dive into how to maintain the relationships around you and how to ask for emotional support.

While this episode is definitely worth the listen, we understand that life gets busy and have provided a summary for you here.
