I wonder how many of you are approached by strangers who are curious about your family. My wife used to get approached all the time when out with her then girlfriend. People would ask, wow are you a gay couple? We live in a relatively small town and she found it pretty annoying. That doesn't happen with us but I wonder if it will when we are pregnant or out with our kids in the future.
I'm embarrassed to say the real reason I'm asking. I saw a female couple in a coffee shop the other day and I so wanted to approach them! They were obviously married with matching rings and had the cutest baby in a stroller. I'm sure they were from out of town because I've never seen them before. I said something like what a cute baby, and they pulled the stroller closer to the table and the newspapers they were reading higher up on their faces. They probably didn't want to be bothered and likely get annoying attention from strangers all the time, so I didn't say anything else.
I guess I'm just desperate for community and want to meet some families. Maybe I'll get to meet some of you someday. When we finally have kids maybe we'll join a mommy group and meet some other same sex couples. This road just feels long and lonely right now and I wanted to meet someone whose dream of a family has come true. But I guess this is what this board is for. So I can meet people and ask questions and not be that annoying stranger!
