Friends Brian brn_gamble and Jim just_jimbo (who are a couple, for those who don't know them) are happily awaiting the birth of their baby daughter, Katie, as we speak. Jim posted here to say Kathy (their surrogate mother) was in labor!
Brian and Jim are remarkable people. Very responsible men, spouses and parents. (They already have a son, Chad, who turns five tomorrow!)
In light of Spain's news today (legalizing gay/lesbian marriage), I wish these two were also able to have a legal union...
Hopefully some time soon! (Why is the U.S. so backward when sex is involved?)
Anyway, many congratulations to this family unit!
And for those of my LJ friends who haven't 'met' either Brian or Jim, they're delightful guys -- and tons of online fun, too. (They both write fanfic -- and both were involved in the project Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I tackled in May, trying to produce a fandom definition list to use at various Yahoo! groups lists and communities where we play...)
I really can't wait to hear the news!!!
A New Baby Soon!
