I agree with the consensus that the SW did a great job handling the situation, and seems well versed in situations like these. I would be interested in seeing a session where she has invited back Jose’s partner, and the discussion had between the three of them. I would think that it is important to see where they are at in building a family, if they are considering it now or already trying. Some other things to consider, like she said, is that there is a population that has difficulty with fertility regardless of cancer treatment. Which seemingly takes some responsibility or maybe even guilt off of him. Building a family takes two people, and assessing the partners fertility as well has value to it. Apart from discussing what could happen just naturally, I do like that she gave him all the options up front. So if for some reason or another natural conception is not in the cards for this couple, he knows there are other viable options.
