Our wedding day

From 13 Colonies to 13 States – the New American Revolution?

Yesterday was an incredible day – I am still reeling. Kendra and I woke up to the softly padding footsteps of our daughter, Addison. As she crawled into our bed, I turned to my wife and whispered, “Happy Birthday.” Addie followed suit. Not long after, my nieces and nephew who were spending the night awoke, […]

2013 Blogging for LGBT Families Day: Getting Creative

For Addison’s second birthday, my Auntie Debbie gave her a set of Fisher Price Little People. It was a bride and groom with a fancy carriage and wedding cake… and a second bride and groom, because she wanted Addison to be able to mix and match – two brides, two grooms, or a bride and […]

Trying to Conceive, Round Two: Part II

This is the second post in our story of trying for baby number two. Click here to read the first post. With so many failed attempts, a miscarriage, and a chemical pregnancy, Kendra and I were not sure we wanted to continue trying for another child. Her body was paying a huge price physically, and […]

Trying to Conceive, Round Two: Part I

When Addie turned one, Kendra and I started talking about trying for a second kid. We had four vials of sperm left from the same donor we had used with Addie. We were lucky to have even that many – when I called to order more after Addie was conceived, I was told he was sold […]

Praying for Justice and Equality this Pesach

Today and tomorrow will be important day in U.S. History. This morning the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments for and against Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California after it had been legalized, leaving many gay and lesbian couples in limbo. Tomorrow, they will hear arguments for and against the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was enacted […]

Mommy, Addie, and Mama in the Hammond reservation in Andover, MA

Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!

2012 was an exciting year for us. We took Addie overseas for the first time in February, along with 18 of our inner-city students, spending time in both London and Paris. The highlights of our trip were Warwick Castle, the Tower of London, and the Louvre. Addie proved to be a great world-traveler, and in addition […]

Boston Pride 2012: A Mom’s Perspective

Kendra and I have always loved going to Pride. What’s not to love? Rainbow flags everywhere, block parties, and lots of gay people! Before we started dating, we went to Pride to check out the ladies. After we got together, we went because we enjoyed being part of the fun. We haven’t been very often […]

Blogging for LGBT Families Day 2012 – A Non-Bio Mom’s wish…

It’s hard to believe a year has already past since I wrote a post for the 2011 Blogging for LGBT Families Day. In some ways, our entrance into the world of parenting was rather unremarkable. Kendra and I settled into family life quite easily, facing no external opposition or discrimination, only love and support. However, […]

Celebrating with the judge after the adoption was official!

Adopting My Own Daughter – GLBT Adoption

Today was a special day for us – my adoption of Addison became official! It seems a bit ludicrous that I had to adopt my own child, but it was a necessary and important legal act to protect all of us. Why? Because even though my marriage to Kendra is legal in Massachusetts, and my […]
