More Than a Village – a Tale of Procreation

More Than a Village- A Tale of Procreation

Last week, I talked a little about the lack of positive media regarding surrogacy.  It is an ongoing battle and one that I hope to change bit by bit, the more I blog for The Next Family and at my own blog, Just the Stork.  One of the things I do on a weekly basis is check out what people are saying about gestational surrogacy.  I have set up a Google Alert for “surrogacy” and I search Twitter using key words.  Usually, I try to help dispel myths or answer questions that are posted.  But the other day I found a rather interesting tweet.

edwardmcdonald I’m directing a feature doc about two gay men attempting to start a family through surrogacy. Please support!

Hey!  That’s right up my alley.  And once I visited the link and read through the proposal I was SOLD!

Two men trying to start a family- CHECK!

Interracial Couple- BEEN THERE, DONE THAT!

Surrogate named Kelli with 3 kids- WHAAAA????

Then I watched the video.

I think I LOVE them all.  Ian and Tony need a baby, Edward needs to make this documentary, and I need to see it all unfold!

I pledged $50.  My new goal is to get this project funded! I’m letting everyone know!  If only I had a place to spread the word . . a blog . . . or two . . . If only I had time to Tweet and Facebook about it . . . if only at the time of me writing this,  “More than a village: a tale of procreation” is 5% funded.

Challenge Accepted!
