When our daughter Sophia wrote a letter to President Obama at 10 years old, it started a worldwide sensation that set our family on a course of amazing adventures. We’ve met many interesting people along the way that wanted to hear our stories, stories about two dads raising two daughters in today’s crazy and wonderful world. So we started this blog!
Parenting is hard enough, amiright? What with all those quick-on-your-feet explanations to hard questions, decisions about whether to say yes, no or maybe (and you know the kids realize that maybe means yes), and the myriad things that could go wrong as we guide these little lives towards adulthood. Sometimes it’s all a big jumblef*@#. Add in the “I have two dads” twist, and you’re sure to hear a few humdingers along the way.
But we are pretty darn fortunate to have each other, and as the story goes, love conquers all.
And so does travel. Visiting other places around the globe helps us see the bigger picture: that our lives are part of a much greater community made up of people just like us, only completely different. The space between is what truly matters, and our little family enjoys the exploration.
So these are our stories – expressed by all four of us – as we travel, navigate, experience and grow. And laugh, because you gotta laugh.
