Hi all, my name is Jacob! I live with my husband, Stewart, and our infant son Max in New York City in the East Village. The “About Me” window on the right tells a little bit about how we all became one big happy family, and that’s what this blog will be all about.
More specifically, I see this blog as a creative outlet for me to address how we created, and are raising, our family. I look forward to not only relating some amusing anecdotes -- hopefully not too many horrifying ones! -- about my daily experiences as a gay stay-at-home-dad, but also being informative about surrogacy and parenting issues. I would love this blog to be a dialogue not just a monologue. So I would love your feedback, suggestions and questions. I hope sharing my experiences will encourage you to share your experiences with me. I am always interested in talking with other parents, gay or straight, about parenting issues and advice. I am also very interested in talking with people about my surrogacy experience.
