Hi,
We live in Barnes and are definitely keen to meet up. It's early days for us, our baby is due on Christmas day(!). We have visitors staying with us in Juneso prob not the best time for us, but please let me know if you get a regular meeting going and we'll join at a later date.
Welcome to London Om! Hope you are settling in okay.
Donna, how are you getting along? Hopefully twins don't mean twice the strength of symptoms!

sanfran Tue 19-May-09 11:31:59

Hi temme09, hope your feeling ok? Im just wondering when im ever going to feel better, feel like i have about 6 in there. Hormones are bloody raging.

HELLO,

WE ARE A BRAZILIAN FAMILY AND WE ARE LIVING IN EAST LONDON (WATHAMSTOW). WE HAVE A 5YO SON AND I WOULD LOVE FOR HIM TO MEET UP WITH OTHER KIDS HIS AGE.... HE JUST MOVED IN WITH US (I AM THE BIOLOGICAL MUM) AND I HE KNOWS ABOUT ME AND HE UNDERSTANDS IT, BUT HE WILL NOT TALK ABOUT IT...I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS A GOOD OR A BAD THING. HE IS REALLY YOUNG AND I AM AFRAID HE WILL KEEP THINGS TO HIMSELF AND BE ANGRY WITH ME...

IT WOULD BE GOOD TO HAVE ADVICE FROM MUMS WHO WENT THROUGH THIS SAME PROCESS....

THANKS!

Unicorn1521 Mon 20-Jul-09 17:26:01

Hi Mvale and all other same sex families. We moved to Essex from Manchester in April this year. As yet we have not met any other lesbian/gay families and are eager to do so. As we left all our lesbian/gay friends behind in Manchester we obviously do not want our son to feel isolated. Blessings

Unicorn1521 Mon 20-Jul-09 17:27:23

Forgot to say our little boy is 4 years old

sanfran Tue 21-Jul-09 11:52:21

Hi, vixonb!

Don't know if you're still interested in forming a baby and toddler group, but I'd be happy to meet up and discuss - in SW London, but happy to travel. My email address is jessica.stclair@gmail.com Thanks!

Gigglemite Wed 29-Dec-10 21:38:50

Hello,

We've just moved here from the US and wanted to find other same sex families to meet up with. We are located in SW London. Is there a group that does meet on a regular basis?

Thanks,
Shannon

CharlieAnthropologist Mon 31-Jan-11 17:22:45

Hello,

My name is Charlotte and I am currently doing my Masters in Social and Cultural Anthropology at University College London. The topic of my dissertation is looking motherhood, at how it is perceived and conceptualized by lesbians. I am also interested in what the perceptions and images of the family – their structure and organisation – are.

Lesbian motherhood has been very rarely discussed within British academic literature and is therefore very underrepresented in the study and discussion of motherhood. I would like to change that by giving lesbian mothers the chance to voice their views, experiences, and opinions on what it means and entails to be a mother. This study will be a chance to bring about new definitions and views on motherhood.

For this project I am looking for mothers who are happy to participate in a couple of interviews – about 1 hr in length – and some focus groups – also about 1 hr in length. It would also be of great value to me if I could come and simply observe during the meetings or family life. All information and personal details will be kept confidential.

Please let me know if you are happy for me to attend the group meetings and/or if you know couples who are willing to be part of this study. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me either via email (charlotte.natter.10@ucl.ac.uk) or phone (07513051425) or contact my supervisor Dr. Jennifer Randall (Jennifer.randall@ucl.ac.uk).

Best,
Charlotte

Hi

I live in West London.

I have two kids.

I just come out to my daughter(13)...she took it I guess...ok.
But still I can see worries in her eyes thanks to their father way of thinking and talking.

I would like to meet other parents.

WHen are you having next meeting?

Milli1011 Tue 12-Jul-11 09:38:50

Hello,

This is the first time that I have been on this website, and I must say how warming it is to know that there are many lesbian families out there! My partner and I have been together for almost five years and we are having a civil partnership in December 2013. We want a family and have been looking into ways to go about this, covering all areas available to us. We are slightly overwhelmed with the options, and whether they will work. I have been meaning to join this site to look for other lesbian/bi couples who are starting with their own families, or indeed thinking about doing so. Is there anyone out there closer to Clapham?? Otherwise would love to meet groups in South West London...is the group still meeting at Kew Gardens/Ealing area?

Thank you and take care
Anna

nataliejc77 Thu 01-Nov-12 06:21:09

Hi,
I would also be keen on joining the group. I have a three month old boy and live in ealing.

HandyHerPlumbing Thu 06-Dec-12 21:29:16

Hi. I live in Pinner and would really like to expand my 'local' social network in terms of weekend time with a just-turned-seven daughter. More adult time in the evenings would be a welcome addition! Anyway. Anything planned?? Thanks.

KarateChopper Tue 09-Apr-13 16:46:26

Hi,
Just to let you know, I have recently started a social networking website for LGBT parents http://lesbiangayparents.ning.com where we can chat on the forums etc and we also arrange meet ups in various places. Oh, and it's free for you to use. smile
