We’re Over Half Way There!

We’re 19 weeks and that makes us half-way to the birthdate of Little Man. Pregnancy is about 40 weeks, however, I’ve never made it that far and know I won’t this time either. When you’ve had a c-section, they usually try to get you scheduled before you go on your own.

Past Babies I’ve birthed
Bio Baby #1- 36 weeks

Bio Baby #2- 38 weeks

Bio Baby #3- 37 weeks

Surro Girlies- 38 weeks, 5 days*

Surro Wonder Twins- 37 weeks*

*I never made it to either of my planned c-sections. I went the day before the first time and a few days before the second time. So this time, the OB has discussed planning the birth that last week of July. We’ll see. But that means, we’re over halfway there!

Oh and guess what? I can feel him move now! FINALLY!!!

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 The Next Family March 24, 2016 1 Comment


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...
