This is something I did not know existed before today. However, I belong to a mom’s group, all of whom conceived their children by some method of assisted reproduction. In our group are more than one single woman who was aging and gave up on waiting for a suitable partner to mother a child and these women – each and every one of them – is a strong, capable, loving and effective parent.
In this age of on-line dating, it should not surprise me that since 2014, an internet site has existed to facilitate several unconventional kinds of yearnings. There is the Co-Parenting by Choice aspect for a single person wishing to meet another person of the opposite sex that is willing to become the parent of a child with the seeker.
There is the aspect of someone who both wants to conceive a child but also find love as part of that effort. In this case it is a kind of dating site that pre-selects for a willingness to start a family.
There is an aspect for men willing to donate sperm so that a single woman can conceive a child.
There is finally an aspect for homosexual co-parenting in which a gay couple who want to have a child team up with a single person or another homosexual couple. Suggesting, they surround that child with love by becoming three or four parents together.
I find this very interesting. They say they have 25,000 members. It is noted that since the creation of their site, thousands of families have been created and hundreds of children have been born (maybe even thousands …).
There are YouTubes related to the effort and Facebook page. There seems to be a strong international component to this community. You may wish to consider this woman’s experience in a video sharing – The Life of a CoParent.
