Ring in the New Year with Neil Patrick Harris and Family...(Discuss)

The above photo is from People magazine, but I "took it" if you will from After Elton. If you don't know, you have Neil Patrick Harris and his partner, David Burtka. They had twins a couple months ago, a boy and a girl named Gideon and Harper. Aren't they just an adorable family? I think it's wonderful that LGBT couples are able to have children of their own (they used a surrogate) but I know that there is still a lot of debate and angst involved with this as well...whether it's adoption or surrogacy. That part is horrible, because everyone should have a right to a family...and in the case of adoption, so many children need a home. Why should they be denied that because of someone's sexuality?

I suppose I could go on and on about my feelings...but for now, I'll just bask in all the happy news in these type of cases. Feel free to share your thoughts though. You don't have to agree with me, of course, but be respectful or we can delete your comment.

Happy New Year everyone! Let's make 2011 the year that really pushes Let's Get Beyond Tolerance.

Best,

Lauren

Could they be any cuter? I had no idea that they had started a family, but I love all things NPH, and I am so glad to see them looking so happy. Good for them, and good for us that People felt like they could do a positive piece on their new family!

Heather: I agree...I think it's wonderful that magazines WILL focus on all types of families. As they should. And it really is an adorable family photo. I love how natural it is...

They look so adorable and happy. Thanks for sharing.
Nothing should be denied to anyone simply based on their sexuality.

I believe in my heart and soul that Love, only love, makes a family! Love has no gender.

I have the biggest crush on NPH. Ah and his character in HIMYM is also awesome haha he's mean but he's such a good friend, I can't help but love him!

I think their babies are SO freaking adorable!!!! I also think it's completely ridiculous to have all these arguments agains LGBT couples not being able to adopt or have kids. A lot of the people agains it think that being gay is wrong and will "cause" the children of a LGBT couple to be gay, but uh that's not true. We were actually talking about this in two of my psychology classes.
