Sweetbaby3, I don't think that anyone liked the tone of Israel's posts. He is a man dealing with his prejudice, and he is upset. But if he is willing to listen, and open his mind, many of us are willing to educate him. I am waiting for him to come back.

Hmm, Israel seems to have left the conversation. Perhaps he and his sister have reconciled.

to you all for your well-reasoned and helpful responses.

I tell dc daily how happy her amma and I are that she came to live with us. That overflowing joy is, of course, the reason so many of us decided to answer the call to be parents.

Happened upon this post a bit late, but just wanted to add my brother-in-law and his partner to the list of devoted parents. They adopted a baby boy last winter - a 'crack baby', bio father unknown, and developmentally delayed. Under the care of these two incredibly loving and patient men, baby Jacob has made great strides and will undoubtedly continue to thrive and even surpass his potential. Where would Jacob be today without them? There are so many children who aren't so fortunate. What a perfect opportunity to create families: childless gay couples adopting children in need of loving parents. As a mother myself, I urge everyone to support to gay parents and welcome them into your community.

So many things could be send in response to this post, be let me clarify for you that queer parenting does not require "extreme technological interventions". Many queer parents, like 'parents' in general, had no interventions - they adopt, they have heterosex, they become step-parents, etc.

You are assuming a great deal, and doing so in a very offensive way. :

OPPS!! I didn't realize how old it was and I only saw the first few posts - not all of the thoughtful responses that I am seeing now! OPPS again!
