A while back, I reconnected with a friend from high school on Facebook, and what was unique about our connection was how similar our lives became in the ten+ years since attending Methacton. As someone who came out after high school, it’s always super exciting to see who else also came out since then. When I learned that Sarah was also gay, and married, like me!, I thought – wow, how awesome! I didn’t feel so alone in the world! And then, Sarah announced that she and her wife Alexis were expecting a child. Again – Wow! Sarah and Lexi became trailblazers in my eyes. My wife Sarah and I want to start a family, but feel very overwhelmed with the process. Sarah and Lexi have given us some inspiration indeed.
We followed their journey as they shared it with us online, from standing before a judge to change last names and to win adoption rights, and then their baby Jacob coming into the world…just an amazing and beautiful story. Here are two women doing exactly what we hope to do. When Sarah contacted me about taking pictures of her family, I was beyond excited! It was such an honor to take pictures for her family. And I hope these few pictures give you a glimpse of the beautiful family they have. Lots of love to you Sarah, Lexi and Jacob!
