When I was pregnant, I decided I’d go by Momma. It wasn’t like I had to negotiate my title with anyone, since I’m a single mom by choice. I started referring to myself as his Momma on this blog and it made it all seem that much more real. I call Wallace’s donor his donor, but they haven’t met yet so names and titles aren’t a big deal.
I came across this survey today and it was a fun read. We are definitely a creative bunch! I was surprised by the small number of entries over six years, knowing that this would be tripled in minutes if posted in a few LGBTQ parenting groups on facebook. Maybe someone who reads would be so inclined to share it around!
