Welcome to Rainbow Mamas!

My name is Leah and I have a 15 month old son named Teddy. I lived in a foster home from age 8 until I graduated highschool. It was very hard on me being in a foster home but I grew to love it and I considered them my family. It is definetly scary at first but I am glad they welcomed me into their home. Most kids nowadays end up going to foster home after foster home and it can be very hard on them. They need love and to know that no matter what someone is there for them.

I would like to thank ALL the special moms and dads out there who open their hearts to kids like us,foster parents,step parents and any other parents inbetween. Thank You!

If anyone else would like to introduce yourself,you are more then welcome to. I hope you all are having a wonderful day.

Hi we are Amy and Linda. We are foster parents who adopted our 5 year old twins (Jake & Susie). We are also fostering their 1/2 brother and another little girl (5 months and 7 months respectively). Would love to talk to other moms/foster parents for playdates, etc.

Hi,my name is Zaidy. I'm bi and engaged to a man. He was my first and the father of my child. I've always loved him even though I now know I could have also loved a woman. Anyways, I chose this community because I love my lesbian friends and I would love to make more. Besides, there's something about lesbians and bisexuals that is very welcoming. I truly look forward to meeting new moms.

Hi- I'm Candy. I was married for 7 years, then spent 17 years bringing up my child in a relationship with another woman so I understand the difficulties of both step-parenting and same-sex parenting all too well.

I wanted to offer you guys a resource on my childcare blog (I am also a writer and a qualified teacher and carer). I've just put up a blog post about prejudice in preschoolers which contains 2 stories suitable for reading to young children (say 5 to 8 years), both relating to alternate families- one transsexual, one gay. The blog post is at http://auntannieschildcare.blogspot.com/...
I hope some of you can use the stories to make your kids feel their family structure is not so unusual. Cheers!

My name is Amanda i have a 15 month old son, and i'm due 4/23 with another boy. My husband and I have been married for 18 mnths and are currently seperate. I think if we were honest we really did marry because of the pregnancy, because it all just happened so fast!!
So i'm back at home with my mom now and i'm much happier. My son is my whole world and i'm very excited for the new addition :)
