dear expectant mother
As gay people, we aren’t able to have biological children; however, that doesn’t mean we won’t be amazing parents. Of course, we wouldn’t be able to do this without the sacrifice of a loving mother. We are excited to be considered and hope you know we will love, care, and support your child while providing a perfect environment that gives empowerment.
Mitch comes from a traditional American background: Thanksgiving with turkey, stuffing, gravy, and mashed potatoes as holiday decor is carefully placed throughout the house and music plays in the background. Christmas is filled with gifts, and stories of Mitch as a kid playing with the snow and building snow angels always come up during Christmas dinner conversations. And on the other hand, Benjamin’s Chinese background brings a list of traditional holidays most people aren’t even aware of. New Years in February? You heard it right. But as a Canadian-born Chinese, the kids will also get to celebrate Thanksgiving in October. Chinese culture speaks to how the opposite side of the world lives and celebrates life. But why stop there? Our best friend has welcomed us into his home and his traditional Mexican values with Mexican food, Mexican dance folklore, and traditional celebrations of life’s accomplishments. We truly feel like we are part of three different cultures we can’t wait for our child to be able to partake in.
