Let’s Get This Party Started!

Look what arrived last week! After all the stressing and sweating, we were able to schedule our transfer for mid/late November. YAY!!! I am so excited. Transferring in November will make it better for me nine months down the road, in case I get hired permanent full time.

So far I have done a few belly shots of Lupron (and not the fun kind of belly shots you had in college). Actually, they aren’t really bad at all and I can self-administer these ones. The only “bad” part is that Lupron can sometimes lead to bad headaches and can make you pretty bitchy and moody. So far that hasn’t been the case and it’s a good thing. I had one hell of a week last week, planning for my daughter’s 10th birthday party, preparing to be observed at work, and then dealing with issues surrounding my husband being in a car accident (he was fine, our car was not).

If there was a time to not lose it emotionally it should’ve been yesterday when I was at a car dealership for almost four hours, with three kids and the underlying fear of being late for work. Luckily my kids had great behavior because on meds, my patience is usually shot.

The next few weeks will be more meds, blood draws, and getting ready for the embryo transfer.

However, all things are possible if you set your mind to them. Those that prioritize their fitness nearly...

Estate Planning: The Basics For LGBT Families

by The Next Family March 25, 2016

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. 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...
