Are there many RJ's that are parents, by blood or by adoption?

    My kids are older now, in their 20s and living off by themselves, but they were always fully involved in my life, and I in theirs, when they were growing up. My partner and I used to have them alternate weekends and most holidays. They were crazy about him. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of breaking up with him.

    My partner and I have a 3.5-year-old little girl and are in the process of adopting another. It's a lot of work, but definitely the best choice I ever made. I love being a parent, and luckily most of our family members have been very supportive.

    I'm the proud adopted parent of my eight year old son. He's been with me (and my ex-partner) since he was 9 weeks old.

    The toughest thing I've ever done ... but also the most rewarding. Parentwood is not for wusses.

    I was married for 12 years and had 3 children. Their ages are 10, 8, and 6. I came out to their mother in April. We divorced in November, but the kids do not yet know why. I am thinking of telling them after Christmas, but not sure. I am seeing this great guy and want my children to be able to meet him and do things with him,so I think it may be time. The fact that I live in a small town and have a very public job doesn't help matters either... icon_neutral.gif
    Any advice? (I know this is getting off topic just a bit...icon_smile.gif )

    to be in public life you have to have a strong personality. I think you can handle and honestly while you might draw some friction from asshats in the community because honestly that does happen, you might be an inspiration to somoene that needs it right about now. Good luck.

    I want kids myself but I want my degree first and a great guy that will be there to love and help me support our family. Its great knowing their are other guys out there that can make it work and balance it all out.

    I have a 6 year old son and me and his mum get on quite well now after a few years apart.

    I only get him a 3 or 4 days a week so I try and schedule my training around him. He's too young to talk to about sexuality but he knows my partner well and you cn see he is figuring out in his own sweet time for now. But I reassure him and have an open door policy with him. But I must say I do sweat over the thought of actually talking about in full as he gets older, so any thoughts or advice would be gratefully received.

    There is so little help out their or information for gay dads. The only support group I found was full of bleeding hearts that were lieing and cheating on their wives behind their backs with the pitiful excuse of "its for the childrens sakes". Makes me so mad
