When you say “non-traditional parenting,” do you mean like not dressing alike as a family? Biz is joined by Jaimie Kelton and Robin Hopkins from the podcast If These Ovaries Could Talk. We talk about all the different ways that kids arrive in our houses. Jaimie and Robin tell us some things they have learned about LGBTQ family planning and we get excited about their new book, If These Ovaries Could Talk: The Things We’ve Learned About Making an LGBTQ Family.
Follow Jaimie and Robin on Twitter @ovariestalk and on Instagram at OvariesTalk.
