If the only thing that’s preventing you from having a family of your own is that you don’t want to raise a child on your own, consider exploring the world of co-parenting. It’s a great way for two people to bring a child into the world without having the romantic part of parenthood. Co-parents are close, perhaps even closer than most parents, but the relationships are not sexual in nature. They’re a team of two who are fulfilling their dreams of raising a child in a positive and supportive environment.
Fabian Blue and Dawn Pieke are co-parents who met on a Facebook group dedicated to helping people find an equal partner to raise a child. Both in their early forties, the pair knew they wanted to have a kid. However, they were hesitant to subject themselves to the stress, fees, and possible rejection that can come with adoption, single parenthood, or finding a surrogate. After discussing their thoughts on religion and how they feel a child should be raised, the two decided that they wanted to be co-parents. Shortly after, they welcomed Indigo Pieke-Blue to the world.
