Good News from a Welsh Mum

 
One of our Welsh mums has been in touch to say that her lesbian daughter has just had a baby boy.  As this is a very heart warming and encouraging story I thought it was worth sharing. Her daughter, Nicky, had a very troubled time in her teens and early twenties, with mental health problems which made her sexuality very low down on the list of parental worries.  She also developed physical problems which have made life very difficult for her at times.  Then she met the love of her life in Anna, a Royal Navy Officer.  
 
They had a civil partnership in 2011, and followed it with a lovely church blessing in central Cardiff, with Nicky looking beautiful in a white wedding dressing and Anna spectacular in full naval dress uniform – some of you may remember reading about it in the SPLAG newsletter at the time, together with a photo taken with the very proud parents.  Recently, the couple decided that they would like to have a baby and in due course Nicky became pregnant.  In the meantime, the Navy offered Anna a ‘married’ posting to a naval base in Virginia and, having carefully checked out that there were excellent medical facilities there, off they went.
Just over 3 weeks before the baby was due, they learnt that the state of Virginia had just legalised full same sex marriage. They  rang home on a Tuesday to tell mum and dad who booked a flight the following day and flew out on the Friday to help them prepare for the MC church wedding on the following Monday! 
The baby was due on 3rd November but arrived an hour before midnight the previous day!  James Dafydd is a healthy 7lb 14oz and mother, baby and partner are doing well.  The delighted  grandparents will soon be flying back to Virginia to give Nicky a hand when Anna returns to work.
I am sure we will all want to congratulate the proud parents and grandparents, and wish them a very happy family life for the future.
