The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

Sorry for my lack of posting.. February 26, 2011

First I want to thank all of you who commented on my last couple of posts.  It’s very healing to read that there are other people who really care about how you are doing.  Especially in this situation because not many of our real life friends even know what’s going on with Lori so, while I do have my besties (you know who are are) it’s nice to be able to vent here as well.

Secondly, I want to apologize for my lack of comments on your blogs lately.  I finally got caught up reading them all, but I have yet to sit down and congratulate or commiserate with anyone.  I’m so far behind that you should consider this a blanket I’m sorry or Congratulations where it is due!  Trust me, I’m reading and I feel real joy or sorrow when I read your postings.

We’re still pretty much in the same place we were in the last time I posted.  The doc did say that if all goes well we’ll have a family session on Monday and she may be able to come home then.  Right now I’m just trying to keep myself busy around the house (it’s amazing how quickly it becomes a mess just by not doing your nightly pick up) so that I can keep my own sanity.

Anyway, back to the spot bot and my new vacuum – Thanks Ladies – you really mean so much

First things first – Jump over to Operation New Dawn and congratulate them on their BFP!! So many exciting announcements in blogland lately – here’s hoping that it rubs off on me!

So as you know we went to see the therapist for our consultation today.  I have to say that it was much more relaxing and informative than I expected it to be.  She went over some legal issues we will run into when being in a same sex relationship and having a child and even recommended a lawyer who handles second parent adoptions in Colorado.  She also went through some research on how to broach the subject of how your child was created once the question is asked. In a nutshell, the research satates:

  • It’s better when the subject is an open topic and there’s not a lot of secrecy around it.
  • Better for it not to really be a big deal.
  • Don’t use the words “dad” or “father” to describe the donor – it creates this fantasy person in the child’s head and can cause massive disappointment if they do get in contact and the magical connection isn’t there.
  • Donor kids typically have no long term issues with abandonment – much different than adopted kids
  • Teach your child that your family is really not “different”, just one of the many types of families.

I tell you, most of this is exactly what Lori and I have discussed ourselves, so it was actually kind of nice to get confirmation that we were already on the right page.

Next step is to order our little swimmers – which I will probably get done this week.  Then, when the time is right, start POAS till I get my smiley!

I so hope that we can do it before our Florida trip!
