    Some Humble Thoughts And Advice On The Very Important Subject Of Lesbians Or Gays Having A Child

    I believe it is a legitimate and understandable desire; still, I would advise that the partners do not rush into this.  I write "I would advise", not wanting in any way to preach; I am reflecting on the topic, thinking out loud, for what that is worth, inviting reflection and...

    Has Anyone Noticed

    There are a LOT of groups for people who wish they never had kids, and three for those who didn't and would like to have. I wonder if any of those chicks would lend me one.

    I am 26 and have yet to have my own child.

    I want one and I know that in order to create one I need to connect with another person to get to that step because it doesn't happen over night. Knowing this, as I get older the want becomes more. As I get older more of my peers are having them and it just gets harder. I do not...
