HERE’S THE TRUTH

CHILDREN HAVE RIGHTS

Yes. They do. Children have a fundamental right to be known and loved by the two people who made them: their mother and father. It’s a right that’s recognized worldwide.

CHILDREN HAVE NEEDS

And it goes way beyond being “safe and loved.” Children are made for the daily love and involvement of both their biological mother and father.

CHILDREN NEED A VOICE

“I want my mom and dad to love me and I want them to love each other.” – Jocie, age 7. If children could order their own world, that’s what they would say.

HERE’S WHAT MATTERS

GENDER MATTERS

Gender differences are a real phenomenon. From their brains, to the way they communicate, to their physical bodies, men and women are gloriously different. When it comes to parenting, those differences offer complementary benefits to children.

MARRIAGE MATTERS

Marriage is not just some outdated religious concept.  It’s simply the combination of three things that children need to thrive- mother, father, and stability. These are the three staples in a child’s social and emotional diet.

BIOLOGY MATTERS

Biological connection matters to children.  Not onlys does it provide them with the adults who are most likely to be protective, attatched to, and provide for them, but it also gives them access to their biological identity.

HERE’S WHO’S IMPACTED

CHILDREN OF DIVORCE & ABANDONMENT

Both my mom and dad had children with their new spouses, but neither of my step-parents treated me the same as they did their own children.  It felt like I was the third wheel, like I was being pushed out of a relationship that was established before either of the step parents and their children came along. 

DONOR CONCEIVED CHILDREN

I spent about six weeks mourning the loss of biological connection to my dad. Nothing seemed to be true and stable. I felt as though I no longer knew who I was. I realized that there was a man out there who I did look like who fathered me and began to mourn the loss of a man who I never even knew existed until a few weeks earlier.

CHILDREN WITH LGBT PARENTS

I am a child of lesbian parents. This is a testimony that it is unheard of because nobody wants to hear about the other side of the rainbow.  Growing up I felt that I was missing a father before I could even articulate what a father was. I knew that I loved both of my parents, but I could not place my finger on what it is I was missing inside myself.  

Get On Board

You’re here which means you’re one of Us. You see the truth of this site in the faces of children you know; children paying the emotional price the adults in their lives aren’t willing to pay. Perhaps you even see that pain in the mirror. Simply knowing the truth isn’t enough, you have to take action or this whole exercise is futile.
