The Why and The Who

22 Feb

The Why:

I am here to ask myself question and to ask questions of others. I am here to engage this wonderful journey of adding a child to my family.

I am here to meet, connect, grow, and engage other same-sex/queer families on their journey (or who have completed) their journey to parenthood.

I am here to show other same-sex/queer families of color that they are not alone.

Our cake toppers from our wedding.

Who Am I:

I am the more feminine half a queer family of color located in the south. I shall refer to myself as Gradly and to my spouse as Charlie.

Charlie and I have been together since 2004. We got married in California in 2008 on our four year anniversary. We had a wedding celebration in the south for all of our friends and family to attend a year later. We own a home and have one dog together named Peanut.

    Thanks for stopping over. Lots of luck as you begin. There’s a wonderful TTC community out there and I hope you find lots of support. It can be overwhelming but the language comes quickly. I and lots of other bloggers keep TTC blog lists. Reading along was always really helpful when we first got started.

    The dog sounds great! Lots of benefits to having pets rather than children 🙂

      Welcome to the blogging world! I am still struggling with my infertlity issues and applaud your courage and openness. It is one of the most difficult things I have had to face. Good luck. Peace, C.

    Whoa…as I was saying, I look forward to following your journey. It’s great to see other same-sex families of color out there too!

        Bring it on. Happy to help how I can 🙂 I don’t know how we could have done this ttc journey without blogs, the internet, and twitter!!
