The ongoing life chronicles of one queer family cohabiting in an urban nest.  This family of five is led by two matriarchs, Gus and Otto. The former is the author of this unauthorized familial history.  Our house is shared by three kidlets: our 16-year-old daughter Bella and our 14-year-old son Bubaloo, a sibling pair we adopted  in 2007 through the Children’s Aid Society, and a 9-month-old baby Doodle who was conceived at home with the help of a known donor, artichoke jar and syringe.

    sounds like fun! When I was kid we always cut our own trees. Now we have a fake one which is a lot less messy, but I miss the pine smell.

    This might sound weird but Doodle looks a bit like my daughter. We are a lesbian couple in Toronto and we used a donor through Xytex. We generally have no interest in finding children born of the same donor and have made no efforts in that regard (though it’s a popular thing in our circle of friends) but I found your blog a few months ago and every time I see a new picture of the doodle it seems so familiar to me and I realised recently why. I’m not sure what to do with the information but I thought to inquire in case it’s a pure coincidence. I looked for an email address but there’s none on the site. Feel free to delete this comment. And, you can email me if you want to respond privately.

    lol.. I just saw that you used a known donor so never mind. Not sure how I missed that the first time.
