Is Your Baby Against Prop 8?

By michellehorton |

The constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8, which defines marriage as being between a man and a woman, is expected to be decided any minute — which means it’s a big day for gay parents, children of gay parents and all those who support legal rights for their love and their families. It would be one step toward equality.

With more children being raised in untraditional parenting situations and more people — both gay and straight — standing up for diversity, tolerance and fairness, let’s hope that the next generation will grow up in a world where this struggle is only in the history books.

So in a nod to all those currently holding their breath awaiting the verdict, here are some fun and meaningful ways to celebrate our future:

Tiny Revolutionary has a slew of beautifully designed children’s clothes for the occasion:

For those children adopted by gay parents, this “Chosen” shirt is one of my favorite adoption gifts:

And for anyone sure that their child will, in fact, change the world:

If you’re frustrated with the traditional depiction of what a “family” looks like, this doll set by The Enchanted Cupboard can be personalized to look just like you:

The rainbow stacker toy is from Imagination Kids, which has gorgeous toys that celebrate childhood and nature.

And of course let’s not forget that every color in the rainbow is beautiful to a newborn:

Fingers crossed!

***Update: Shortly after this post was published, Proposition 8 was ruled unconstitutional by the state of California! Let’s celebrate!

    The times they are a changing, it takes to much time to hate a person and pick them apart because they are different, when you think about it, everyone is different and yet we are still the same embrace the difference and love the same and we can all be one.
