Love this. Just love it. Congrats, Papa. We can't wait to meet her!

Burg, though I was originally just listed as mother, after our second parent adoption we were both listed as "parent" on the RI birth cert. Oh, and in answer to your question about costs, I found some documentation from the lawyer's office that the costs (had it not been pro bono) would have been about $1,300. Sucks to have to pay that much just to have what already exists legally recognized.

A, partner to J, mama to O, now with a new username!

Building queer family since 2008!

(and oh, did i mention we're having twins?!?)

Wow, Papa, that's RAD. You're my hero!

I'm a queer, poly, pagan, (dis)abled, crazy, crunchy, intersectionally-minded feminist. fsonj & I are mamas to our unschooled/freeschooled 12yo & 3yo!  (Ask me about co-breastfeeding, supplementing at the breast, inducing lactation, eating placentas, undisturbed birth, and parenting a genderqueer child with Aspergers!)

I'm an MtF single mom, and I think this solution should be implemented everywhere. Last year, my ex and I had a dispute that came into the mediation regarding our DD, and what we could put on legal documents (school, hospital, and etc.) for her. We settled on identifying as "parent."
