One of the reasons that we started this blog is that, when I was pregnant with Leigh, Lyn could find very few resources to help her learn how to be a mom. We thought that our posts could provide a voice that might help other parents looking to swim in uncharted waters. There are lots of other folks swimming in those waters, both queer and straight, and here are several posts we’ve found lately that hit home:
- why biology? « Looking for a little turtle on the need to be pregnant, having to justify the desire for pregnancy and a child, and the lesbian double-standard.
- Back to Adolescence « Adjustment [and] Disorder on the confusing changes that come with the first year of motherhood.
- Pride and Provinciality « oneofhismoms on the perks of living in a place where gay people are a part of normal, everyday life. Once-a-year pride is great, but being able to live pride every day is even better.
