Ahhhhh, They Love Me!

We’ve made it to 25 weeks and to celebrate, my awesome IPs sent me a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and some chocolates. It totally made my entire weekend!

Time is flying by this pregnancy. Before I know it I will be placing their little man in their arms . . . brand new parents. They are getting really excited and plans for a baby shower are being laid out. Of course, I can’t make it to Australia for it but we have discussed me Skyping into it so everyone can see the belly and meet the person who is caring for their child while he is developing.

Regarding our progress in this pregnancy, everything is measuring perfectly and little man is doing great. He is moving around a lot and some of the kicks can be seen from outside the belly now. I did end up changing not only my OB but also the hospital we’ll be delivering at. My OB had decided to move to Southern California, so I took the opportunity to switch back to a Sacramento-area hospital. I am excited to meet the new OB; I have heard good things about him.

All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. 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...
