How Did You Build Your Family As An LGBT Couple?

Families are made in so many ways.

LGBT parents have a few extra hurdles to jump when it comes to starting a family. But like all parents, you jump whatever hurdles it takes when it comes to your children.

Whether your family was built by surrogacy, IUI, IVF, adoption, or another way entirely, we want to share your story on BuzzFeed.

Maybe things didn't go exactly as you'd planned. How did you deal with the curveballs and persevere?

The process can be arduous -- there are so many paths to take, but in the end it's worth it because you have your family.

So tell us, moms, dads, and everyone in between -- what did the path to parenthood look like for you?
