2 moms

‘She was the most beautiful baby. But I felt helpless. My wife in the NICU crying, my child on a stretcher crying.’: 2 moms welcome daughter with Down syndrome after miscarriages, she’s ‘the best thing has happened to us’

“My wife and I started thinking about having kids. I had it all worked out. We did our research, picked a donor, scheduled the IUI and would start our family – boy was I wrong. After 3 failed attempts and 2 miscarriages, I knew I needed to give my body a break, so my wife Lisa decided she’d give it a try. He then said the words I will never forget. ‘Do you want to terminate?’ I was floored, in shock and mad. No!”

‘We were two girls having fun or so we thought. We loved each other at 16-years-old.’: Young women fall in love in secret and worry about their love being ‘accepted’

“I was sick of being a secret, as if it was wrong or dirty, as if our love wasn’t acceptable. I returned home to find a sign on my gate door saying, ‘this way to happy ever after.’ I thought nothing of it. Zaynah stood there looking as pretty as a picture with a Build-A-Bear teddy and a rose which said, ‘I Love You, Will You Marry Me?’“

‘The wedding day! We THREE gave our daughter away to be married, together. Side by side.’: Successful co-parenting from 2 moms who fought their way to make it work and DID

“This beautiful angel is our daughter. We are co-parents. I am the ‘Bonus-Mom,’ and she is her ‘Bio-Mom.’ Here we stand together, all smiles, at OUR daughter’s wedding. Was it a walk in the park? No. Were there nights of doubt, jealousy and confusion? Yes. Did we always see eye to eye? No. However, we both pressed forward for OUR daughter.”
