So, I just finished an LGBT children’s book for our daughter Quinn.
It’s about a girl who is nervous for show and tell on family day, because her family is different.
She soon realizes all the kids are nervous to share, so she gets brave and volunteers to go first.
She tells the other kids that her family is different because instead of a mom and dad, she has two moms. She tells abut her moms and when she’s done, none of the kids are nervous anymore.
One by one they tell how their families are different too: live with grandparents, lots of siblings… Etc…
When they all finish, the teacher says that even though their families are all different, they all have one thing in common.
The little girl runs home to tell her moms what their family has that all the other families have too: it’s love.

I believe our daughter will always be proud of where she comes from. Her mom is adventurous and confident and I (her mommy) am not so bad myself.
