path2parenthood1Here at RainbowWeddingNetwork.com, we are proud to partner with the team at Path2Parenthood.org.  This wonderful organization supports the LGBTQ community by offering insightful, respectful information in exploring options toward building a family.

Path2Parenthood assists everyone in our community; however we'd like to bring special attention to their handbook that is specifically focused on helping trans- men and women.
