Here I am, sitting by the fire by myself. Around me, my three-year-old is singing jingle bells continuously at the bottom of the steps. My husband is drawing with my five-year-old. We just finished hosting a dinner with twenty family members, new and old, and now everyone has gone home.

Did you ever feel like you're repeating yourself? Over and over again? How many different times can one repeat the same thing? Feel like you were screaming into a dense fog?

I’m a member of a Facebook group focusing on parenting by gay, bisexual and trans men. Diversity is one of the group’s greatest strengths, and on any given day you’ll find posts from dads who adopted (domestically, internationally and through foster care), are parenting children from former heterosexual relationships, are co-parenting, or have built their family through surrogacy.

The New Year is in full swing and it’s safe to say that by this point two things are clear to LGBTQ parents: First, getting your kids up and ready for school is not easy when it’s still dark at wake up time. And if you live in the Northeast like us, add snow boots and long johns to the mix!

Gay Parents To Be had quite a year in 2015. We spent a lot of time and energy commenting on the groundbreaking news that was the culmination of decades of hard work and attention to detail. From the joyful news of marriage equality to the ever-emerging voice of our transgender population, we discussed it here. We thought about it. We wrote about it. We engaged our Notable Contributors to help us understand the political, medical and legal climate across the country and even the world.

You probably know how strongly you feel about having a family. You probably remember the thoughts and dreams you had growing up, imagining your children or babies. You probably have a good idea just how deep seated and powerful this desire is, to have a baby and you probably have an excellent idea of just how prevalent these thoughts are on a day to day basis. Or an hour by hour basis.

Biological Parenting in the LGBTQ Community All of us at Triangle Community Center (TCC) are looking forward to our continued collaboration with GayParentsToBe (in partnership with Reproductive Medicine Associates of CT (RMACT)), and to our event on May 30th, Biological Parenting in the LGBTQ Community. For many in the LGBTQ community, the concept that - we too may settle down with our partners in recognized marriages - is new. An even newer concept is the idea of building a biological family with our spouse.

It’s that time of the year. There’s been lots of conversation in the last month about the following important concepts. A resolution, an intention, a gift. A new year.
