We had some of those questions early on - mostly from my family unfortunately. We weren't too worried about it, because my dp's BIL is very involved with ds, my father watches him a couple times a week, etc... BUT, my father lately has made comments (regarding our parenting as well as other topics I don't agree with him on) that makes me want him to stop spending so much time there. Ds started asking when he started school about his daddy, and has stated on occasion that he wants one. This really upsets dp, and myself at first, but in all fairness, one of his friends has said several times that he wishes he had two mommies!!! I am a firm believer in "it takes a village..." because I think he can gain so many good qualities from so many of our friends and family. We have more straight friends than gay, but have friends who are single parents, who have biracial children, who have adopted children, etc... so he is exposed to all kinds of families. However, there are plenty of straight single women who raise wonderful boys on their own, so I don't think there should be any difference! If anything, we are more conscious of it...
