North Carolina is a Disgrace

Adding My Story to a New Book on the Journey to Same-Sex Parenthood

Gays and lesbians have lots of choices when it comes to starting a family. But this makes the whole thing sound like a happy go-lucky sales pitch at an ice cream shop, where I was trying to pick a flavor.
