Our favorite moments from New Family Values

A highly politicized debate...
Getting pregnant was an enormous challenge for Clara.
Rainbow families often derive from problems that came up in their birth families.
All nine judges sided with Chris…acknowledging Chris’s status as a legal parent.
I will go to games with his name on my shirt.
Our progress away from the margins is highly imperfect.
