A: A public adoption is done through the Children's Aid Society. It is a free process. You have to do a home study. You have to do a course. It takes about a year to get adoption ready. Similarly, if you are doing a private adoption, you hire a social worker who does the home study and who has been licensed as an adoption practitioner. It is just a more costly process A private adoption can be anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000 dollars in Canada. Well what about male role models?' There is a real sense of this kind of gender stereotyped idea about what women provide to children and what men provide to children. It is this sense (that) well we just need a man in a kid's life regardless of who they are.

So we provide information about all of the options The other thing we talk about in those courses is sort of our entitlement as queer and trans people to become parents.

A: It can be very costly. We also have a night that we call the fertility fair where we invite the local sperm banks and fertility clinics to come to the course and they can come and bring information about what they offer and their services. Of course often people's first question is, 'How much does it cost?'

There are movements going on to secure OHIP funding for fertility clinic services. We'll see what happens with that.

For more than a decade, the Toronto non profit, now located at the Sherbourne Nike Hoodies For Women Health Centre in the city's east end, has been a resource for parents with its family planning workshops, manuals, and ongoing research.

A: I think (my daughter) would say that she didn't have it too bad. I think there were other kids who had it worse. It is kind of luck of the draw with where you end up, what school you are at, who the teachers are, who the kids are, because we have heard some pretty difficult stories from kids.

We've done actual training with adoption workers where we spend some time kind of looking at that whole thing. We try to get people to look at some of the deeply embedded assumptions that we have about gender and the ways that those ideas really presume that just because of what you have between your legs, that you are biologically male, that you provide certain kinds of things to children and vice versa. It really also ignores the diversity that exists amongst men and women. Not all men like to rough house and teach their children how to use power tools. Some women do. So those sorts of things come up. Certainly I would say overall, the climate in adoption circles is becoming much more open to LGBT people.

Q: How did you explain that issue to her?

Q: What is the ballpark cost for parents looking to adopt?

With donor insemination, it can cost, say you do it once or twice a month, anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 a month. Again, it adds up fairly quickly. If people for whatever reason move to (in vitro fertilization), that costs us at least $10,000 a cycle. Certainly if you are doing a surrogacy, you are looking at IVF so it can be extremely costly.

The poor kid was very upset the next morning we were all in there speaking to the teacher.

Q: When you became a parent, what was the LGBT parenting landscape like at that time?

Nike Hoodies For Women

For many prospective parents in the LGBTQ community, one of the first steps toward parenthood starts with a trip to Rachel Epstein's LGBTQ Parenting Network.

A Q with LGBTQ parenting expert Rachel Epstein

A: My daughter was born in 1992. We were two women having a baby together. My co parent's name could not go on the birth registration at all. It was only my name as the birth parent. We wanted to give her a hyphenated name of both of our last names. We were not allowed to do that it wasn't until she was 14 (when) we were part of that birth registration case that they gave my co parent a declaration of parentage so the birth registration was changed at that point. Her name was added to it. My daughter was then given a legal name change.

For example, in her Grade 2 class doing the family tree exercise, another child put up her hand who had a lesbian mom and said, 'What if you don't have a dad?' And the teacher said, 'Of course you have a dad, everyone has a dad.' The kid said, 'Well what if you don't,' and the teacher said, 'Well what were you, born in a jar?'

Q: What are the financial implications when trying to conceive?

to do. Some people are thinking about adoption Some people are looking to co parent so they are looking to find other people who they are not necessarily romantically involved with to parent with. Some people are doing surrogacy.

Some people, getting pregnant is really what they want Nike Gray Hoodie Womens

So we still find people coming to our courses not really being sure that the kids will be OK, that this is something they are entitled to, that this is an OK thing to want.

A: I would tell her, 'If we were crossing the border, if they ask who is your mother, say me. They don't understand families like ours.' It was very hard for her because it meant that she had to deny one of her mothers and say this person is not my parent, which was ridiculous in her mind but that is what we had to do.
