Description

Photo of a quilt patch with a blue and purple butterfly and the text “Oren Jasper 4-19-12” (name included with permission), created by a non-gestational mother's family members .  See also the couple's Free Library, created in honor of their two sons.

“[Because I carried our child,] I think it often gets overlooked that he was [my partner’s] son too and that makes me really sad. But one of her family members really got it. Her grandmother has an enormous quilt on her wall, and it has the family tree on it. They put Oren on the family tree as [my partner’s] son. They got that he was her son too.”
