Thank you sooo much for doing this story. Brought a tear to my eye. I’m a single black gay dad via surrogacy and it feels good to see and hear about a family with similar experiences as me. Sometimes, it’s weird to walk into an area with my daughter, grocery or airport, and it’s like I’m a unicorn walking in the room. It’s usually a positive reaction but I know it’s coming from an unfortunate, stereotypical place. At the end of the day, my baby girl is my everything and I consider myself beyond blessed to be her dad.

    Appreciate your taking the time to respond, and to share about your own story, James. We couldn’t agree more…it’s so important that we dads, and our kids, see other families that look just like our own!
