As long as the children are being spoken to openly and honestly about who are the biological parents who made them and who are the caregiving parents who raise them it should be ok.

Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

I had the same thought. Was wondering whether to bite my tongue. Wonder if the same advice would be given to a hetero couple that adopted or used egg or sperm donation to make a family possible?

Anyway, guess some ppl come in here to gawk or insert unsolicited advice. Lol.

Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

Well, im not the pp, but I would say it is very important to let a child know they are adopted. Seems like they will find out eventually, and would be hurt if it has been a secret. Someday the child will learn their parents did not conceive them together and will have questions. Again, seems best to be open and honest, but not sure at what age to bring it up?

You realize all the parents in this thread are gay so it's inevitable that our children will know they weren't conceived by conventional methods right!?

Plus that's something that's up to the parents, whether or not how much they divulge to their children.

Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

We're expecting our first the end of February and trying to figure out the world of cloth diapers. We've been married 11 years and used an open donor.

Anyone out there using fitted diapers or wool and have time to answer some questions?

Thanks and Happy New Year.

Present- Wait Midebaby are you secretly me? We also used an open donor after being together for 11 years. We are new to the CD scene as the babies just arrived in late October but feel free to PM and I'll try to help. We used kissas for a little while and love wool.

Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

Hey, names Taylor, I have a 2yr old son from previous marriage. Wife and I are TTC and are a part of a group on Facebook for private sperm donation. (you only pay for the shipping! usually $80-160). We found a donor on the group and are going to try to inseminate by March of 2016. If you would like the link to the Facebook group PM me, I would be glad to help other couples/people who are also on the same journey!!!
