This past weekend we met a new friend named Grant who lives just 2 blocks down on our street. Another Alton Boy!
We actually got to meet a ton of new friends that live on our street or just a few blocks away at a brunch hosted by Grant's daddy and his partner who all have 1 thing in common - same sex parents. Eight gay or lesbian families with young kids all within walking distance of each other. We had no idea there was such a community within our community. How could we have never run into any of these people at the park or the grocery store?!
Well, Joseph won't care much about who has 2 mommies and who has 2 daddies. All that's important to him is that Grant has the entire Thomas "Misty Island Rescue" train set that he had asked us to buy him for Christmas which he never got. I think we'll be seeing our new friends often.
