Connected Episode 14: The Journey

Family Matters | Connected Scene Pulls

The AOL Originals series, "Connected," follows New Yorkers as they film themselves without the interruption of a camera crew in a fresh twist on the unscripted format.

Among the cast is the Bendet-Taicher family. Married fathers Eli and Ido are raising two daughters that were born via surrogacy, and even in a city as diverse as New York, questions of how their family fits into the American mold have begun to arise.

"Recently Milo's been more curious about where she's coming from," Eli tells the camera. "She's been playing 'mommy and daddy' all the time, and not 'daddy and daddy,' or 'mommy and mommy'."

In Episode 14, we get a peek into how this type of modern family works as the couple sets up Skype dates with their daughters' birth mothers and begins to consider what next steps they must take to have another child. Watch the full episode below.
