It's Blogging for LGBT Families Day today on the internet. I posted something not-that-long, but I did it on Tumblr, so people might see it. It's here: The Same and Not-The-Same, and it basically runs through the past four weeks in our life with an emphasis on what's the same for us as queer family and what's not quite the same. I should mention that it includes discussion of miscarriage, since we/Leigh [how do you quantify that?] had one last week. People on Tumblr/Twitter probably know this already...but I'm probably going to have to process some on here at some point soon. When I have the energy to write words.

If you're an LGBT parent--and I think I have some--think about posting something today on Tumblr or elsewhere about your parenting life! And then you can share it at Mombian here!

I'm so sorry to hear about the miscarriage; my best thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Also, if you don't mind, could I link to your post? Not this one, the Tumblr one.

I'm so sorry. I lost a pregnancy between C & Q at about 7 weeks. It sucked.
