Gay Dads Chicago Pages

I started Gay Dads Chicago on 03 July 2010 as soon as I realized that there was no such support group on the internet. I mistakenly set it up so that any and all correspondence went to the website and not to my personal email address. I hadn't checked it since its inception, and my best friend (and honorary Gay Dads Chicago member, Christopher Roy) googled "Gay Dads" 2 days ago and exclaimed, "Here's a site, and it has 98 hits". I replied, "That's my site, and it has how many hits?!". I already had 1 member , and I was up until 1:00am sending emails to as many potential members as the website would allow (they limit the number that I can send in a 24-hour period). We were so very excited!

At Winston's Internet Cafe in Andersonville the next morning I awoke to find that we now had 3 members, and I began to cry immediately. The kind woman at the next computer handed me napkins to dry my tears, and I explained to her that these were joyful tears. I called Christopher, and, when he arrived, the floodgates opened. I sobbed almot uncontrollably for 15 minutes.

It is now 2 days later, the number of members has doubled, and our inaugural meeting is scheduled for this weekend at T's in Andersonville.
