Ok, so as of June 16th gay couples can legally wed in the state of California. I am curious about the response/reaction to this by GLBT families. Are you as parents planning to wed immediately to garner all the equal rights for your family? Are you planning a ceremony or celebration? Are you interested, but not really moving forward? Are you not interested at all?
Let me know your thoughts on the subject. Are you looking to get that legal certificate ASAP?
Californians Against 8 is organizing a protest at the capital building in Sacramento this Sunday, November 9th at 1:00pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to get involved! We will not give up the hope of experiencing equal rights in our country!
What do you do with your embryos? It's a dilemma that many couples and individuals who have gone through IVF treatment face, as there is an estimated 400,000 to 500,000 cryopreserved embryos in the United States alone. You are done having your own children and you are not sure what to do with the embryos you have cryopreserved at your IVF center. As the years go on, you are charged more each year to maintain them. It is a very real dilemma for a lot of people.
Torn Between My Lover & My Kids
It has been excessively long, there is more, and more that transpires between each of my entries. I had not even had the chance to log on and see what is new with those of you who I have had the wonderful chance to be in contact with. So, from the obvious to the not so obvious, in snippet form as per usual.
Finally! We are having a baby!!! The 3rd try the IUI was successful! Wish us luck that all goes well!
You know what? I love when people make descisions for me. When people DECIDE - without talking to me/us that we are not capable of commiting to 20 ?%$#@ hours a month, justs because we are trying - note that I said trying not DOING - to BECOME foster parents. Yes, that's right, we have started the process to apply to be foster parents for ages three and under, and because of that, we can not be CASAs for children OVER AGE THREE. WHY????
Well I am excited that this website is up and running. Looking forward to being able to talk to people and share our experiences. Any advice that anyone can offer will be gladly accepted. My wife and I are planning on TTC in the new year. So right now we are busy charting, tracking and temp taking. Is there anyone around who is getting ready to do the same? Congrats to all those who are already parents.
Okay, so I gave my world, my heart, my almost everything to Her for over a year. . .one day she walks in and tells me she has just exchanged vows and rings with some other girl, who she has been "close to" for two weeks. There was absolutely a crack in my universe. . .I won't go into all the details of our absolutely unique situation. . .but I can say that I was (and partly still am) completely broken. . .and to top it off. . she took the puppy we just got while I was out of town. . .
My partner and I have been together for 4 years and are getting married this spring. The next natural step for us is to plan a family. Since we are new to this stage, we are looking for some helpful tips from any other lesbian moms or moms-to-be.
Just a few questions to start our ball rolling:
What are the opinions of using an unknown sperm donor or of using a known donor?
Is there any sperm banks known to be better than others?
Is Cryogenic really the best? and if so do we need to plan a trip to CA?
