I just wanted to share this beautifully written article about choosing a known donor with my online queer family. 

 

http://offbeatmama.com/2011/03/sperm-donor

 

Very well-written, and insightful.

 

As an aside, I'll be joining Offbeat Mama as a contributing writer once a month to offer a "queer perspective."  Whatever that means... lol.  I'm not sure all my articles will be queer-family centric, but I just wanted to share the fun news!

 

Hope everyone is doing well!


Part hippie-chick, part type-A career woman, all mama. Enjoying life as a wife to my partner of 11 years, and a mama to our smarty-pants toddler, Cadence.

Yes, I read that article a few days ago. It was a good one. Congrats on your new spot as a contributing writer. :) We love Offbeat Mama around here.


Mama to two, and second-time surrogate. Expecting May 2015.
