The Beginning

Here I am starting my very own blog. How long have blogs been available?! A long time. I felt the need to make/create/share/give/offer a place where any parent gay/lesbian, straight, bisexual, transgendered etc. etc. to have a resource. When I became a parent of two lovely wonderful beautiful happy lovely (I said that already-the list could go on and on and on but I won't do that) children September 22nd, 2008 (happiest day of my life up until that point); there wasn't any kind of resource for me to utilize as a new parent.

 Even with the vast amount of people in my life at that time; (agency, social workers, case workers etc. etc.) there was limited resources for me to help me with being a parent. I had to find this all on my own. An example of this was, I asked my agency contact person if she knew of a church that I could worship at as a family that is also gay friendly (mind you I later found out on my own that her best friend is the pastor of the church we go to now-which it never occurred to her to tell me oh and he happens to be gay), has examples of other same sex couples families and is child friendly. (sunday school hopefully)

Now I am not a person of vast knowledge but I have come to equip myself with resources, community groups, school booster clubs and parent relationships that I can offer this knowledge to. I am a self starter and a seeker of knowledge so I feel I have a lot to offer.

If you would like to follow me on this then I welcome you. I believe that I and you can offer each other a lot of knowledge sharing. =-)
