What do you call a sperm donor, three moms, four kids and their Fox News watching grandparents? A family!
Everybody needs more family. That's what my husband and I were thinking when we offered in 1996 for him to be the donor for our good friends, two moms who wanted a family together.
Our four kids love each other very much, and I got the niece and nephew. My daughter loves having a sister. Three years ago, my husband's parents, big-time conservatives, jumped into grandparenting our co-family's kids, and they are the best damn grandparents ever. Des Moines, Iowa: Meet the new normal!
