I am writing as one half of a lesbian couple who have begun the process of starting our family. (Which means we're looking for sperm, or "leavening" as my friend W. -- who is in the midst of the same process -- calls it.)
I'm starting this blog because I have been enjoying reading other such "journeys" (my wife C., the mathematician, insists that it's a process rather than a journey....I, on the other hand, am an English teacher), such as babycakes ( http://www.drizzle.com/~mdavis/blog_babycakes.html ) and two moms are better than one ( http://twomomsarebetterthanone.blogspot.com ).
No making fun of my computer skills, please. As I said above...I'm an English teacher. I do what I can.
(If anyone who knows me personally chooses to read this: please be discreet and use initials rather than names and no identifying details please. I don't want the FBI -- or worse, my students -- to be able to identify me.)
Edit: Yes, I had misspelled "journeys" above, and now I've fixed it. Thanks for pointing it out, 2More Mamas. YOU try staring at kids' misspellings all day without making a few yourself....
