The White House issued the following proclamation to recognize Father's Day: "Nurturing families come in many forms, and children may be raised by a father and mother, a single father, two fathers, a step father, a grandfather, or caring guardian. We owe a special debt of gratitude for those parents serving in the United States Armed Forces and their families, whose sacrifices protect the lives and liberties of all American children.
If you have a son or daughter around six or seven, you may have already heard about Club Penguin. Club Penguin is a virtual world (think Second Life) for little kids. Kids choose and name a penguin character to act as their avatar as they move around the Club Penguin site and play games to earn coins. These coins can be exchanged for clothing and other items. The site says it’s for kids 8-14. There are 700,000 paying members worldwide and over 5,000,000 visitors per month.
I am helping to put together a series of questions together to help match Gay Men/Couples with Lesbians/Couples who are looking for a donor. I want to cover all options such as (a) Co-parenting, (b) Known Donor Dad and (c) Anonymous Donor Dad etc.
The aim would be to help find out what the Lesbian Couple was looking for OR what the Gay Men are looking for by matching answers to questions. The "question" is ....what should be the "questions"?
Doesn't any one have such a list? Or know of a resources that I could use to help get this going?

Finding a religious practice has long been a difficult area for openly Gay, Lesbian,Bisexual and Transgender people, even more so now that increasing numbers of us are raising families. With the arrival of children, many of us are seeking to raise children with the benefits of a religious community as part of their lives yet are hampered by bias, both overt and covert, against GLBT people. In response to this concern, Family Equality Council has launched a new LGBT family-inclusive faith curriculum focused on making faith communities more welcoming and affirming of LGBT families called All in God's Family: Creating Allies for Our LGBT Families. All in God's Family is a multimedia resource that seeks to engage faith communities and faith leaders in conversation on how best to embrace our families, from lessons on scripture to activity suggestions and more.
