the boys had a good time even with the rain and the cold - caleb waved at everyone, jared was a little tentative but mostly because of the weather
for years angela and i have been going to pride dreaming of bringing our kids to pride one day...this year we actually got to share if with them...last year they were just a bit too young. this year they joined us in celebrating the families of others and their own family.
while we hope to show them every day that they are no different than anyone else, pride is a day that we show them how proud we are of our difference. we come together as a community and celebrate!
i can't count the number of people who waved and clapped and smile and shouted at the two beautiful babies.
our family is nothing to be ashamed of and we will spend every day of the boys' lives teaching them that! even when people they love can't stand behind them or their family, they will know that they are two of the luckiest, most loved boys in the world. they will know that their family fought to bring them into this world and will keep fighting for our equality as a family.
the US Supreme Court opened session today - 2 things on the docket are the Defense of Marriage Act and California Proposition 8...i can only hope that in the next 12 months these two things will be resolved in our favor and we can move forward towards our family's equality.
i look forward to including the boys as much as possible in the fight for our family's equality!
