Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

i so wish some of you guys lived close to me. DS is 2.5 and we have already talked to him about how everyone's family is different, some kids have 2 mommies, some have 2 dads, etc... and he totally gets it and is cool with that answer, but from daycare, he is starting to notice there arent anyother kids who have a family like his. He doesnt seem bothered by it at all, but its leading to more questions, and he is trying to find osme common ground...

the other night i was putting him to bed and he asked where Mama's (DP) dad was. I said the Grampy was at home for the night. And he said "nooo... mama's other dad, where is he?". He wanted to know where Mama's 2nd same sex parent was. It was cute but at the same time made me a little sad that he doesnt have any friends with same sex parents, or even any other couples that we know.

We used to have a couple of gay couple friends but over the years, we drifted apart, people moved.. so now we have a lot of family around, just no one else he can see is like his family.

I live in Maine... not a whole lot of options to get similar families together for play dates

Gay dad here

I'm transgender and went off my hormone meds in order to carry. Pregnancy and labor were--- not experiences I would repeat again any time soon. The process was pretty rough on both me and my (cisgender gay male) partner but we got an amazing little girl out of it! She's 6 weeks old and we've been cloth diapering since day 1. We are an international family living in Sweden

Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

Glad to see some proud families on here I'm Mari, and am not a mama yet but my partner and I are waiting to try for our first lil one hopefully sometime next Summer. We will be using a known donor, but unfortunately friends and family are unable to help so we will be finding a donor online (looking promising so far ) My partner and I have been together 6 years, and she will be carrying our first, whilst I will carry the second if all goes as planned. Plan on cloth diapering at least part time, so building up a stash to spread the cost atm

Good luck! My wife carried ODD, and while I never would have thought it was in the cards, I decided to carry #2, for a number of reasons. Lo & behold, we ended up moving from iui to ivf & I now find myself just about ready to deliver twin girls I'll never do it again (& have asked DP to remind me of that if my hormones flare up & make me think it's a good idea in 6 mos.!), but I'm so excited about twins & have no doubt it was the right choice for us.

I'm a straight married mama but I just wanted to say "Hej" - we're an international family in Sweden too. Congrats on the new baby!
