When you think of family,
what do you think about?
Collectively, most of us think of fond memories, loving households, special bonds, togetherness and solidarity. Maybe you’re thinking about noisy gatherings, backyard barbecues, family vacations, or silly sibling rivalries.
But if I asked you to close your eyes and describe family, individually, our definitions would differ. Some of you would describe a picture of a single mom (consciously or unconsciously) parenting alone. For others, it might be a grandmother raising her grandkids or two same-sex partners raising a family. And then for others it might be a blended family of siblings and co-parenting, resulting from a divorce or remarriage. The traditional family unit has changed, evolving from our old definition of two parents and children into a more modern definition: Family is defined as a specific group of people that may be made up of partners, children, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.
Families come in all shapes, sizes, colors and arrangements. Whatever it looks like, family is family. But what happens if you’re dreaming of a family that you can’t have. Perhaps you’re a single woman without a partner or a lesbian couple without a donor. Regardless of your current situation or your family unit, there are a variety of options that are available to you.
Many families are possible due to medical technology utilizing donor sperm and egg banks as well as surrogacy and adoption services. Donor inseminations, and Invitro fertilization have allowed people to overcome their fertility challenges and have their children.
