So friends, we have come to the infamous last episode. I write this with sorrow in my heart that our time has come to an end. This journey has been long, but ultimately rewarding, and that is thanks to all of you. We took deep breaths, shared our stories, bared our souls – and with a loud, resounding cheer, you have applauded our normalcy, our intense and passionate love, and our determination to continue in the face of set backs and bad days. I am humbled by the overwhelming support that has been pouring in through Facebook and Twitter, and by those we have met who have shared your stories and heartaches right with us.
Cori and I started this journey as a love letter to our future child. What we have now, is a love letter to all of us out there trying to beat the odds, to make families of our own, and to be out, in love, and so proud. You have made this experience worth it, and it is with a huge amount of love and respect that I dedicate this last blog to all of you.
As the cameras stopped rolling and chunks of our lives hit the cutting room floor, we wondered what the impact would be. Would we be lost in the shuffle? Would anyone care? When I was little, I watched a film about AIDS and HIV. It was the first time I had ever seen a gay character on film. It changed my life. Then, I saw another film, and with dropped-jaw, discovered Lesbians on film. These are my predecessors to identity. They were my compass. To think that we were able to be that for someone else is incredible, much less representing all of you out there.
And so the final lines come to a close, and I wish you all good luck, treat each other well, and love hard – with all of your might.
PS, go Team Unicorn!
