My Big Gay Blog

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.


  1. I am an IM looking into getting a PBO in GA. I live in the Augusta area, and our child will be born in Savannah, at the only birthing center we could find. Please please please tell me where to find the PBO???? I have training in writing legal documents, but since I have never seen a PBO, I am unable to create one that we can take to the court. Any help you can give us, a copy of your PBO, anything would be greatly appreciated. I think it is absolutely awesome that you made GA history. You look like wonderful loving dads...Thanks for sharing your story.

  2. I just found your blog and I am super excited to read it! My partner and I JUST started our journey through Traditional Surrogacy and I am grateful for the footsteps!
