As Georgia and I do everything we can to bring a baby into this world, and the reality that we will one day (hopefully soon) be parents, I often find myself worrying about all the “what ifs” that come along with having a child. Just like any other aspiring parent, I find myself worrying about everything from health to safety and we don’t even have a baby yet! Aside from these common concerns, as a gay parent with a modern family, there can be some additional worries involved. Will my kiddo get bullied because he has two mommies? Will my little one’s teachers treat her like every other student that has a mom and dad? Will Georgia and I have everything it takes to raise a well rounded, responsible and respectful child that is proud of where they come from?
I’m confident that we can but it certainly helps to see a living example of the fact that gay parents have been doing this for generations. Below is a video I came across today that filled me with pride for my community and hope for what the future holds.
