today i am proud to live in this country and proud to have been a part of something amazing. today the Supreme Court struck down something called the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). this is something you may only read about in your history books and i am so thankful for that. this law stated that your mom and i were legally denied federal rights as a couple - this law made it possible for our marriage to be overlooked and looked upon as less than a marriage between and man and a woman. today that is different. today, in a few states around the country, your mom and i are legally married in both the eyes of the state and the federal government.
you may think this is silly because when you're old enough to understand this, today will be old news...it will be history...but today we made history and for the first time, the federal government stood up for your family! for your rights to me as your non-biological mama! it's a pretty awesome day my loves!
"...it humiliates tens of thousands of children now being raised by same-sex couples. The law in question makes it even more difficult for the children to
understand the integrity and closeness of their own family and its
concord with other families in their community and in their daily lives."
