Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 16 of The New Family Podcast!
Sara Lanthier joins me in this episode to talk about her journey to become a mom without a partner. Sara is a mother to seven-year-old Will, and she blogs about single motherhood at urbanmoms.ca.

Now back to what this interview is all about. Sara and I talk about how she came to decide to become a “choice mom”—and on how picking a sperm donor is a little like online dating only without all the awkward coffee dates. Sara speaks candidly about the good and bad parts of going it alone as a mother, the importance of having a great support network around you as a single parent, and on just how critical it is to remember that the sun will always come up in the morning.
Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Sara.
Sara’s Favourite Parenting Advice:
“The sun will always come up the next day.”
“Don’t let yourself become so concerned with raising a good kid that you forget you already have one.”
