Miriam&Amber_Wedding (141 of 227)The Next Family: How did you start your family?

Miriam:  When I was young I always told myself that I didn’t want to have kids, but in 2010, all of a sudden I got that feeling that I wanted to be a mom no matter what.  Axel was born on February 6, 2011.


The Next Family: How did you meet your partner?

Miriam: In January 2013, I met Amber in a bar. For me she was the most beautiful girl. We started dating right away.  At first it was hard for her being so young and dating someone with a kid. We moved in together a couple of months after we started dating. Two years after, I proposed to her.  We got married may 29, 2015.


The Next Family: Are you going to have more kids?

Miriam: We want to have a baby girl. We are still thinking about it, and if we do it,  Amber is having the baby this time.

Miriam: San Diego, California

The Next Family: What is the greatest (and toughest) part of being a parent?

Miriam: The toughest part about being  parents is working.  It’s so hard for both of us to have time together with him. I take him to pre-school and head to work and she picks him up from school, then she starts working. Good thing we both have weekends off.

The greatest thing about being a parent is that no matter how bad our day is going, he finds a way to makes us smile and be happy. He is such a good and happy boy.We both love him.



The Next Family: Do you have any advice for LGBTQ youth? 

Miriam: The advice I give for LGBTQ youth is to always to be yourself and love yourself no matter what. Don’t be ashamed of who you are.Miriam&Amber_Wedding (132 of 227)
