The Next Family has officially begun our 2013 Spotlight Campaign, in which we will share stories of same-sex parents from around the country. Now more than ever, with our President’s stamp of approval, we are beginning to see that the definition of family is changing. Same-sex parents exist in large numbers. We want to highlight and celebrate these families. We are all just parents with the same struggles, but it’s not often that families like mine are represented in the media.

My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.
The same can be said of other...
