How far would you go??

I just came across this article on, and found it kind of intriguing in a few ways.

Firstly, it reminded me how amazing medical science is these days, and what extraordinary lengths people are willing to take to have children.
Then I thought (and subsequently found many comments agreeing with me) what person in their right mind would want to explain the circumstances of their conception & birth to that child in 10 years? Can you imagine it? "Yes, little Jimmy, your daddy did die 5 years before you were born...and your mommy is someone I found through the newspaper who lives halfway across the world (or even, your grandma advertised for someone to be your mommy through the newspaper)." What kind of issues do you think this kid would grow up with?

Then I started to think again...there are lots of imperfect families out there, and simply stating that since this kid might not have a biological father in the picture, and therefore will have issues is just not right. There are many loving families out there that aren't exactly traditional, and it seems like this woman has put a lot of time into choosing someone to carry this child. It's not really clear who would be raising it in the long term, but I think I'd give the benefit of the doubt here and believe that no matter who it is would be a loving caregiver.

And who knows? Maybe this child would someday embrace this story as proof of how much his (or her) biological father wanted them and the extraordinary lengths their grandmother went to to acheive it. That they get to carry on his legacy, whatever that may be....

But then again, what if everything doesn't play out like the picture perfect fairytale? And is this really, truly something that 19 year old soldier would've chosen? Does it make sense that his mother can make that decision for him after his death?

Such a touchy subject, so many questions, but really who does have the answers? I guess only time will tell.

In the meantime, it's one hell of a story.....your thoughts?

Christmas Presents

I need help!

I've come very close to finishing all my Christmas shopping, and had really figured I'd be done all early this year and everything. It was so under control!!

*sigh* until now anyway....I've become totally stuck for ideas for my sister. I already have one thing for her wrapped & all, but I wanted something else to add to it. Problem is, I just don't have any ideas, and save gift cards (which I really loathe getting for people), I'm at a loss....

Also, to top it all off, the 2nd part of my dad's present, which would have been oh-so-awesome for him I think, is next to impossible to find. And dopey me, the one time I actually saw it in the store, I thought "oh great! I'll be able to come back & get that" and lo and behold, it's nowhere to be found now. Smart eh?

Sooo....any suggestions are welcome :-)

I figure I'm about due to post again, I guess a month's wait is really a little too long.

I was inspired to get on here today with the same-sex debate coming up again in Parliament. I can't believe, election promise or not, that we're really getting into this again. How else can the government waste its time already?? Last I heard, the majority of Canadians don't even care anymore! And at the end of the day what do our rights mean if, once these discussions are had, debated, recommendations are made and decisions taken, someone can come along and say "you know what, I still don't like the answer, so let's have another go"???

It also reminds me of a conversation that happened last year with a coworker of mine who can be rather outspoken on this issue. Basically, the conversion devolved into him claiming that anyone who studied history knows that same-sex relationships caused the fall of the greek & roman civilizations....

It was at this point that I picked my jaw up off the floor and just walked away....

I stand firm in my belief that everyone should be happy in the partnership that they choose. It doesn't impact me one iota if John & Jim or Jane & Judy decide to pledge themselves to one another for life, and why should the government re-hash it all over again because of an election promise?

It's not like they haven't broken a few already... ;-)
