LOVE MAKES A FAMILY.
That’s the motto for the world’s largest day of celebrating families like ours on International Family Equality Day, May 7. And we think it’s very appropriate.
When Sophia wrote her now famous viral letter to President Obama, and he personally wrote her back in his own eloquent prose, he said those words in his letter to Sophia: “What matters above all is the love we show one another.” He is so right.
Our family was created from love, just like any other loving family of any shape or form. Triton and I knew we wanted kids, and were meant to be parents to our two beautiful girls. And they were meant for us, thanks in part to the love and selflessness of their birth mothers who knew we were the perfect parents to raise them. We cried happy tears at their births, when we brought them home from the hospital, and when he hugged and kissed and loved their little newborn cuteness. (And sometimes we still cry at the beautiful things they do and say).
Families come in all shapes and sizes. Some families have two dads. Some have two moms. Some have just one parent, or step parents, or foster parents. The one thing these families all have in common is love. #loveislove
We’ll be celebrating families like ours on May 7 for International Family Equality Day, and we hope you will join us too!
