This message is for my children.
Yesterday, I took you to the Maryland State House to be present while our Governor signed the marriage equailty legislation or what is more commonly being called the legislation legalizing same-sex marriage in our state.
Throughout your lives, there will be many decisions you make. Many choices you have. I hope you will take with you the love and hope that was present yesterday in the State House. I know your hearts and souls absorb all of the experiences you have each day. I hope that the moments we shared lobbying, supporting, walking the halls of Annapolis, attending hearings and finally watching the Governor sign this important legislation into law make you proud some day. You two participated in a huge part of history.
When we left the State House and I put you both in your car seats, I kissed each of you extra long. We all cuddled, and Noah said to me, "Love wins today!"
My heart is so full. Love is love, and I am so happy we share ours as a family.
