I just came from a wonderful baby shower!? Frank and John, the prospective dads, were opening gifts for the little girl who is going to be born in April to their friend, who is the surrogate mother.? The entire village / support system was in attendance at the event, which was held in a favorite neighborhood spot – an old factory.
The gifts were all fun? – one box contained specially printed onesies – saying I Love My Daddies, I Love Daddy and Daddy and variations on that theme.? A ballet dancer presented her with her first tutu – and leotard!
I love how America is becoming every day more open and more welcoming to every variation and configuration of family.
Even while we hear all this racket, calling out in fear about the destruction of the family – from a negative and shrinking group of extreme radicals – the real truth is that America has never been more open, loving and accepting of change.
We are getting there.? Let’s keep our eyes on the prize – and our hearts wide open.
