CafeMom member Koam and her partner conceived their daughter via artificial insemination - and the donor was an old high-school friend! Thanks for offering to share your experience and answer our questions, Koam!

How old is your baby? How do people react in public when they realize you are a lesbian couple with a baby?

 This is my question as well. Our 17yr old DD is gay and she very much wants children in the future. While I know our family will support her how ever she decided to have children, I am curious how the rest of the world reacts to this.

How did you find a donor? How did you decide to ask your high school friend -- basically wondering how that came together.

I have a female friend of mine that is a lesbian.  Her and her partner  just recently had their 2nd child together.  I am honestly all for marriage equality and them having children.  They are great parents to their children.

I do have to admit that according to my churches religious beliefs I am majorly in the wrong for supporting their marriage but I figure that I will take it up with God when I am dead and meet up with him.  Unfortunately some people find the whole same sex relationships gross but I do not.

 Since you and bio dad were friends, to what extent is he involved in your child's life?
