This week’s featured families are @m_bessterrell, @hapafive, and @retrobirdie. We love these families! One was married in Massachusetts, one is fighting for marriage equality in California, and one is fighting for marriage equality in Missouri. Thank you for sharing your families with us!



Melissa and her wife, Leslie, live with their two sons in Nashville, TN. They were married in Provincetown, MA in 2011. When asked to share her favorite quote, Melissa shared Gandhi’s wisdom, “You must be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

I love this family!

“Hello!  I am Whitney and I share a life with my beautiful partner, Erika.  We have a 3 year old son, Maxwell, who is seriously the most handsome and smartest little guy around.  He is our whole world!  We currently live in Saint Louis, Missouri.  We truly love our life together and this little family of ours.  Erika and I are not married, and though we could easily marry in many states allowing same-sex marriage (and soon neighboring state, Illinois), she and I want a marriage recognized in Missouri, our home state. ”

You can find Whitney on Instagram: @retrobirdie.
