Hello...It seems like I have been away forever. I want to thank all of you for your warm support for my son. His surgery went well and besides some red eyes he looks and feels as good as new.
I believe most of you know that I love to read. One of my favorite authors is Jodi Picoult. I enjoy her books for 3 reasons. 1) She puts the climax of the story in the first chapter, leaving the readers wanting to know what happen and how it came to be. 2) The ending always has an off the wall twist. 3) Her stories always makes you think "What would I do in that situation" And that you can relate to the story in some way. Over my loooong weekend I had a chance to read her latest book. I'm not quite finished yet but the subject line has got me thinking...
The story is about a married couple who struggle with infertility and when the stress of losing their baby at birth they divorced. A year later the husband finds "God" and the wife find love with another woman. They end up married and decide to use her unused embryos to start their family. When the ex-husband finds out he sues the women for custody of the embryos saying God would not want these unborn children to be raised by a gay couple.
The story got me thinking of both sides if the coin. What do you think? Should a gay couple, male or female raise a child together? Do you think being gay is environmental or were you born that way? Do you think it is our business to care either way as long as the child is in a safe and loving environment?
