State encourages same-sex couples to adopt

It has been more than three full years now since the United States Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the nation. In that time, however, gay and lesbian couples have still encountered many challenges when it comes to finding ways to become parents and ways to establish legal parentage for both parents.

What is artificial insemination?

Connecticut residents have more options for starting a family these days than ever before. Between different types of artificial conception, parents of all sorts can have children much more easily than in the past. However, these new methods of conception also create legal questions, such as asking who the legal guardian of your child is.

Increase in parenthood for gay couples

Over the past couple of decades, gay and lesbian residents in Connecticut and around the nation have seen some improvements in their ability to live their lives fully. The legalization of same-sex marriage is just one example of this. While the changes may be slower than many would like, they are happening and now there are more gay and lesbian couples who are able to realize their dreams of having a family

Considerations for potential surrogate mothers

Many couples in Connecticut and around the country find themselves wanting to be parents but unable to have a baby in the way often referred to as "naturally." Sexual reproduction by a mother and a father is simply not always an option. Some couples struggle with infertility. Others are able to become pregnant, but complications preclude a successful outcome. Same-sex couples naturally need to consider other routes to parenthood. Regardless of the reason, hiring a surrogate is an option.

The financial challenges of alternative reproduction

There is hardly another life event as exciting as expanding a family. For same-sex couples in Connecticut, this might entail a number of options. Despite the increasing accessibility of various alternative reproductive plans, many couples still struggle to make ends meet. One reason for this challenge lies in the exorbitant costs that often come with these plans. 

Fertility plans and the options

Deciding to start a family can certainly be exciting, but can also have its fair share of overwhelming aspects. For same sex couples, choosing an assisted reproductive technology (or ART) is a major step that can change lives forever. For Connecticut spouses interested in these procedures, there are some details to know that can make the process a smoother one.

How does surrogacy work?

As our society evolves, more and more people in Connecticut are opening their eyes to the various ways via which people can become parents. Certainly gay and lesbian couples need to look outside of traditional reproduction between partners to become parents but even a heterosexual couple may find themselves unable to conceive a child or to successfully carry a baby to term. If you are in one of these types of situations, you will be happy to know that there are more options available to you today than in prior generations.

Connecticut offers hope to gay would-be parents

People in Connecticut who are gay or lesbianand who want to start a family like their heterosexual counterparts know that their road to parenthood may be long and arduous. However, the desire to enjoy this part of life is understandable and many have found ways to do this successfully.
