A Family Is A Family

What is a family? Do you have to birth your child to be a mother? Does your sperm have to make the baby that calls you father?

Today's families are so different & evolving & I love it! I love that there is something like IVF & adoption. I am happy that families have so many options when becoming a family. Now, if only we could get more people to fully accept all of these ways of becoming a family...but that is another post!

My DH & I were lucky enough to watch Rosie O'Donnell's A Family is a Family last night & I am in LOVE!! This documentary is so amazing! If you have not seen it, please take a moment to (It's on HBO In Demand). It touches on everything from biracial parents, gay & lesbian families, adoptions & IVF...its perfect! I highly recommend that you see it & try to get your families to watch it.

I love the way it deals with this topic in a fun cute way...from a child's perspective. I have added a preview to this documentary & would LOVE to hear what you have to say if you get to watch...I cannot recommend it enough!!

  3. I look forward to watching this. I loved the documentary she did for HBO on the cruise ship. It very much opened my eyes to what being a parent really means.
