The Morning After

3 Sep

The other morning Cori and I woke up to our usual routine.  We scooped up Jonesy cat, lying on top of us, and gave him some morning love.  I fed him breakfast while Cori brushed her teeth.  I snuck a peek at her in the shower – because I still get excited when I look at her.  She got dressed to my despair, we kissed, held each other, and we drove to work.
 
The day was very typical – we were waiting for 2 weeks to be up.  We were marking time on the walls of our minds, wondering what it would feel like to see that test result, looking longingly upon the faces of other people’s children – yearning to see Cori’s eyes, a gesture, a familiarity.  When would it be our turn?  What would it feel like?
 
Cori and I went to sleep that night, like any other night.  We kissed, spooned and closed our eyes.  What I didn’t know was that that night, that last lingering look upon my world, would be the last night of that life.
 
“Baby, wake up!”  Cori jumped onto the bed, half on top of me, and rolled me over.  Her Hazel eyes were shinning, bright and open.  “Baby – look.”  She handed me a long white stick, and as my tired eyes focused, I saw not one, but two distinct lines forming on the test.  Cori turned her head, looking at me half-telling me, half searching for reassurance:  “We’re pregnant.”
 
I have only ever been conscious of my heart beating one other time in my life – it was the first time Cori kissed me.  I held that test in my hand, glancing back and forth between that test and my wife’s eyes… and we both began to cry.  I took her in my arms and we embraced this new day.  “You did it,” I said to her quietly.  She pulled back from the hug, held my face in her hands, and touched her forehead to mine.  “No baby, we did it”. 
 
One year from today, I will have a 3-month-old baby.  Two weeks from today, I will see a heartbeat on a sonogram – I will see my kid’s heart beating.  And for the rest of my life, I will feel this immense amount of love for my family:  my incredible wife Cori, who I will love until the day my own heart stops beating, and even after that.  And my baby, who is already adored, prayed for, loved, loved, loved, as he or she or they grow inside my wife’s womb. 
 
I am so happy to share this moment with you all.  I am so happy to confirm that all of our shared wishes, hopes, and dreams have come true.  In most films, gays and lesbians meet terrible ends.  We die; we are lost, left, or forgotten.  Not in this story.  We have a happy ending, or rather; we have a happy beginning of a new chapter.  Our love is real love – we are stories of our own – and we are all listening.
 
Thank you for all of your love and support – it has cushioned the fall of our angel from heaven and into our arms.
 
And keep sharing your stories with us, and we will keep praying and sending love in hopes that it will be the light that guides your angel down to you. 
 
Love always,
Kacy, Cori, Jonesy, and our future Bambino

    We have never been so invested and emotional for people we have never met, but you guys are so beautiful inside and out, and to know you will finally have the addition to your family you have been searching for brings such joy to our own lives. You guys will be amazing parents, and we couldn’t be happier for you. We never cried for people we don’t know but we feel like this roller coaster has even brought us closer together. I wish you both the best of luck and will wait patiently and religiously for updates. Thank you for being such and inspiration, and visible for the community to see and relate to.

      I feel exactly the same. My heart skipped a beat with excitement when I read this post. Maybe it’s because kacy and cori remind me of how my wife and I are with eachother, I don’t know. I never thought I would be sitting at the edge of my seat waiting for good news from two people I have never met. 🙂 I’m so thrilled for them!!!

    • Amye September 6, 2011 at 9:29 pm #

      THAT’S What I said! I’ve never cried like that for someone I’ve never met! But after seeing them on TRLW & after reading Kacy’s blog who couldn’t be that invested in them! I couldn’t be happier for them!

  5. Hannah Edwards September 3, 2011 at 1:37 pm #

    Congratulations. We have just had some tentative good news in this department too so think it must be good news all around.

    How is it even possible to be reduced to tears after reading such incredible news from a couple I’ve never even met. You allowed us to get to know you through the vehicle that is The Real L Word. You continued to inspire & touch lives even after the season wrapped. Thousands of fans/people/humans have taken this journey with you and will continue…you are an amazingly inspirational and REAL couple who so deserve this gift. Rock on unicorns!!!

  23. Angela Bond September 3, 2011 at 2:30 pm #

    Congratulations and thank you for the updates. We sincerely wish every happiness for your growing family. We love you for how real, positive and inspiring you are. Kacy, you write with such artfulness, I think you should write a book about what it feels like to be the “non-birther”. It would touch so many.
    Sending postive energy your way!

    Angie & Geisha

My girlfriend and i have been together 2 years yesterday and i pray so deeply to have such an amazing story to share like the two of you when the time comes to bring our own into this world.

    You both are truly inspirational and i hope you will give yourself’s credit for giving hope to those of us struggling to find that true happiness, that you two now finally get to experience.

I carried them for 9 months, but we are both their momma’s and parents for life. We are going to Mom’s weekend for our daughters college, where does the time go? 🙂 Its such an exciting ride, parenthood, from birth, to kindergarten, to college and then someday Grandma’s woohoo!! Cheers to you Both on this most amazing journey of parenthood. Oh…and don’t forget…pickles and ice cream for the midnight cravings!! 🙂

    Goodluck & keep your loyal followers up to date!

    Much love from Australia xxx

  46. Trisha K September 3, 2011 at 5:45 pm #

    OMG!!! Congratulations!!! I am so excited for you both! I totally know how you feel about wondering if you’ve gotten pregnant yet because my husband and I have been trying but no luck yet 😦 so hopefully I’ll get to feel what you feel soon!! I’m so excites for you both and I hope we get to see more shows on you two! They should do a show on just both of you and your pregnancy adventure or at least do one on YouTube! I bet we’d all love to watch and experience your experiences with you two!! Congratulations again and tons of blessings and love to you both!!!!

    • Amye September 6, 2011 at 9:40 pm #

      I’D LOVE IT!! THey were definitely my favorite girls onTRLW!! I could easliy watch an hour of just Cori, Kacy & family every week.

  47. Caitlin Blennerhassett September 3, 2011 at 6:00 pm #

    I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy for people I’ve never met 🙂 Congratulations!!!!! Thank you for sharing this journey and please keep us updated. Wishing your family all the love and happiness!

  49. Tara F September 3, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

    Thank God!!!! Its about time!! LOL!! You guys are going to be great parents. That baby is going to be very loved… but I have a gut feeling that its going to be twins. I have been praying for you guys for a while now and I am glad to see that its finally paid off. Now the fun really starts, all the morning sickness and raging hormones. Remember that you may want to eat everything you see but you shouldn’t (its not good for you or the babies). Also I really hope you guys keep up with your blog because a pregnant Cori is bound to be comical. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

  50. Misty September 3, 2011 at 6:42 pm #

    I am so happy for you guys.

  51. Cassie Saiz September 3, 2011 at 7:16 pm #

  52. Lauren September 3, 2011 at 7:32 pm #

    I am so thrilled to hear this wonderful news!!! Congratulations to you both! 🙂 Nothing compares to the moment you find out you’re going to be parents–except for the moment you first see your child’s face. The love and joy you will feel is indescribable. Your love is inspiring and you will be wonderful mommies! Wishing you both a happy and healthy pregnancy.

  53. Valerie September 3, 2011 at 8:55 pm #

    Yay! I am soooo thrilled for you. I watched you on the show and was struck by your authenticity. I was so curious to hear how your story would turn out that I found you on Facebook and found this blog and have been an avid reader ever since, waiting to hear if you would be successful in your journey. You are wonderful people and you deserve this! Congratulations!!!!

  54. Tara F September 3, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    My guess is you have twin boys on the way. I always get gut feelings… it saved my life once as a teenager.

  55. Jade Zito September 3, 2011 at 11:41 pm #

    i think i have been just as anxious you two during these past two weeks (well hardly but i certainly was crossing both fingers for you!!) you give me hope that one day i can start a family.. and have kids, something i truly never wanted until this season and following your story. congratulations ladies 🙂 🙂

  64. Whitney Smith September 4, 2011 at 10:37 am #

    I’ll never forget, it was just last September! We woke up, looked at each other and headed for the bathroom. No words spoken. We were emotional zombies. Except my heart was pounding this time around. I could hardly open the box. My beautiful wife looked at me, she felt exactly what I felt. Once the deed was done, we didn’t look at the stick. WE JUST KNEW!!! I remember saying the same thing ” in a year from now, jr will be 3 months!”… Or ” next time we watch BSU play, jr will be right here next to us!”.. Well, he’s here alright!! Jagger is 4 months old now!! He was a bit too anxious and came early!! BUT HE’S HERE!! Actually screaming in his swing, since I’m ignoring him while I take time to write this! So the hard part is over right?? I would love to say yes… But I cant! I know this is becoming lengthly so I’ll sum it up with a single piece of advice! Don’t FORGET the magic!! Make love like it’s your first time.. EVERY TIME!! Date nights are crucial! Hold one another until the sun rises!! Don’t LOSE the magic! Dont become one of those “normal couples!”. You two are about to ride the craziest roller coaster known to man. Hop in and hang on tight to one another. It’s one hell of a ride!!

    • Amye September 6, 2011 at 9:47 pm #

      GREAT ADVICE!! Mine are 11 & 16 And I think we need to put these wise words to use! Thanks for the reminder. And CONGRATS On Jagger.

  65. Marisa September 4, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    I’m so happy for you guys! It’s been such a long journey. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. I feel like I just found out a family member was pregnant.
    Congratulations, you two. Enjoy this journey.. You deserve it.

  66. luvguac September 4, 2011 at 11:18 am #

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. Jess September 4, 2011 at 5:04 pm #

    I have never posted to your blog or facebook page before. I was such a fan of you as a couple on the show and have been following along hoping and praying for your success.
    I had such a good feeling this month! Congrats to you both!!! I think you’ll both make amazing parents. Enjoy every moment of this next journey, the good, the scary and of course the amazing ending. There is nothing in the world like being a parent. Congratulations again.

  74. Kim September 4, 2011 at 5:04 pm #

    I am so happy for the both of you. My wife and I are in the very begining stages of this process. We have finally decided on a donor. The next step is the Dr’s appt. I have to say that we have been planning on doing this since we met, however your story has truely inspired us. I know you two will be excellent mother and I am excited for your journey. Good luck in all you do!

  75. dsheabrooke September 4, 2011 at 5:50 pm #

    congratulations!!!
    just wanted to say watching your story on trlw and reading your blog really gave me hope that in the future my girlfriend and i will get our chance to live our lives together without all the setbacks of being a teenager with families that won’t accept our relationship. Y’all are so inspiring and helped us realize that it can work out and one day our lives will be truly ours to call the shots on. Thanks so much for sharing your lives and we’re wishing you the best of luck!

  76. Casey September 4, 2011 at 6:49 pm #

    WOW! Congrats guys. It feels strange to be so happy for two people I don’t personally know but I fell in love with you both on the show and I’ve been following your blog/journey ever since. The love you two share is something people wish for. You both seem like amazing, precious woman and I’m incredibly happy for you and for your baby to have such loving, devoted parents. Best of luck to you both x

  77. Daria September 4, 2011 at 6:56 pm #

    Congratulations guys!! Your baby is so lucky to get to be born into a family with so much love. I have no doubt you’ll be awesome parents. I wish you both lots of luck in this next chapter of your lives!!

  78. KellieRose September 4, 2011 at 8:07 pm #

    I am SO incredibly happy for you two. I am a huge fan….my husband and I have been trying to conceive for awhile and I know how stressful the whole process is and it warms my heart when I find out that good people are finally going to get the family they deserve. I’ve been using http://www.twoweekwait.com to get through my tww and hope to get my BFP soon!!!!!! CONGRATS AGAIN!

    kasey and cori,

    your love is one of the most pure and beautiful things i have ever seen. gay or straight you two set an example for couples around our country about what a healthy, loving, functional relationship should look like. thank you so much for sharing your story with us during this past season of the real l word. i cannot tell you how many lives you have touched and how many couples… again both gay and straight.. share in your struggles and take comfort from knowing that they are not alone. i have watched my coworker and her wife struggle with fertility and baby making for years. they now have two beautiful sons. she would tell me that watching you cry on the show brought her back to exactly what she and her wife went through.. and all she wanted to do was give you a big hug and let you know it would be okay.

    thank you again for being such an inspiration. i wish you two the absolute best in your venture into the wacky world of parenthood. i know you will be the most amazing mommies any little baby could ever possibly hope for. i can’t wait to hear more about your adventures along this new wonderful road.

  87. Kristina September 5, 2011 at 10:53 am #

    OMG Im so happy for you girls!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so excited about the good news and especially for the future of family of 3.

  88. Kerri September 5, 2011 at 11:02 am #

    Congratulations…I can’t wait to watch this beautiful journey unfold for the two of you. You certainly deserve all of the happiness in the world. My soon-to-be wife and I are so excited to start our own family….and you are an inspiration to us. We are so proud of your strength and hope that we have the same love and support when it’s our turn. Congratulations again!!

      I am still in my early 20’s and the idea of a wife and family is till a scary prospect. However, knowing that this is possible and reading your experience through this process makes me hopeful for the future.

  108. Kelley Anderson September 6, 2011 at 10:43 pm #

    I have been following your FB posts and blog, waiting for this one! I am so happy for you both! I wish nothing but love and happiness for your growing family. We are starting our first insemination this Sunday and I have to say that your strength and courage have given us hope! Thank you so very much for sharing your story..

  109. Hanni Arteaga September 6, 2011 at 11:11 pm #

    I had been at work for 21 hours and I was driving home, I quit smoking a year ago but as I bummed a cig from a co-worker I said, “this is just an, ‘I need something to stay awake cigarette’, I swear I quit smoking.” Even though we’ve never met, as I smoked my cigarette I thought of you two…I was thinking that I hoped that Cori wasn’t too stressed and that she wasn’t smoking as I am right now because it decreases fertility and that I hope she doesn’t start again if she becomes pregnant (I’m a pediatric nurse)…and I was contemplating sending you guys my story, just to share, just because…I got home went to sleep, and after I woke up I was web surfing and I came across all your congradulations on your webpage, I had to come on here to hear the scoop. Reading this post gave me that happy teary feeling 🙂 I’m so happy for you two, I can only imagine what it’s been like going through this, especially so publicly. Congradulations Mommies!

  110. April September 7, 2011 at 9:11 am #

    I am so so happy! Finally..I was hoping you both would get the news you so deserved..I really loved watching the both of you in your relationship..how much love you shared for each other and how much respect. You both deserve so much happiness! I have been with my girlfriend for almost two years now and I hope we have many more because theres so much that I feel for her and she has become a blessing in my life. She has shown me so much love. I wish you both happiness and joy!

  111. Elle Jay September 7, 2011 at 10:07 am #

    Congrats! I am so happy for you! I named my daughter Evelynn Faith, because Evelynn means “longed for child”, and Faith was what I needed to get me through the tough journey of trying to have a baby. Blessings to you both.

  112. Lori September 7, 2011 at 10:56 am #

    What an amazing new chapter in your lives. I am so happu to hear that and so touched by kacy’s beautiful words. You will make such a wonderful family! Can’t wait to hear more.

  113. Janet September 7, 2011 at 11:25 am #

    Congratulations!! As a mother of 3 (2 by adoption and one by birth by my wife), I can tell you that you are in for the ride of your life. It is the hardest, yet most amazing, wonderful, fantastic journey. It pushes every button that is installed within you, invigorates every fiber of your being and stretches you to places you can’t imagine.

    Have fun and enjoy it all! Lots of love and light coming at ya!

  114. ♥mary k.♥ (@SugarrButt) September 7, 2011 at 2:25 pm #

    I just read the news (thank you Cori for tweeting me the link yesterday!)… Oh my god, I am SO happy for you both! My husband and I are trying to get pregnant as well and I know the heartache that TTC can cause. I fell in love with you both on the show. It was the best “story line” ever and I hope and pray that you’re on the next season!! So many people believe that all it takes is sperm in the vagina and VOILA, you’re pregnant. Doesn’t work that way for lots of women. I am SO SO SO SO SO happy for you two! Thank you for not giving up – because I know that’s so easy to do. Stories like yours give me hope and make me want to keep trying. I know that, in the end, the negative tests and invasive procedures will be worth it!! Did you do IUI? Or was it “just” insemination? Not that it matters of course, the point is that you’re PREGNANT!!! That baby (babies??) will be so lucky to have two amazingly loving Mommies!!

    Congratulations again, ladies ❤ I am SO excited for you!!

    PS This is "SugarrButt" from Twitter 🙂

  115. Melissa September 7, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

    So very happy to hear the news….One day I will find love like yours…

  116. Lainey September 7, 2011 at 4:33 pm #

    Oh yayyy!!!!!!! I’m so happy for you two!!! 🙂 Congratulations!!!! Now I can only hope that my girlfriend and I will be as lucky as you!!

    omg!! yay!! i told my sister and she was happy too!! congrats! hope everything goes well… dont forget to subscribe to baby toy-r-us!

  118. Jennifer R. September 8, 2011 at 4:58 pm #

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You two (I’m sorry, three!!!!!) just absolutely made my day! I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that you finally got those two lines that you had been waiting for. Some might find it strange how emotionally invested I became in your journey while watching both of you on The Real L Word… I enjoyed watching the other girls and their lives, but I felt a greater “real” connection with you two than anyone else. Your story was really beautiful and moving, and I thank you for being open enough to share it with the world. I’m not a lesbian, I’m not trying to conceive, and I don’t have any children yet (although, my first relationship was with another girl who I really did love… labels, whatever… and I DO plan to try to conceive at some point in the future- a few more years, i think), so it wouldn’t seem that I would have any great reason to follow your story. Except that I’m a human being who was moved by your love for each other and your immense desire to be mothers. Those feelings came right through the screen and grabbed my heart. 🙂 I’m 28, married to a man I love with all my heart, and I hope we will be parents in a few years- and I anticipate it being a struggle based on some health issues. Even though we’re not there yet, watching your journey has been inspiring, and I am sure I will look back on your strength and love for each other when I am hormonal and nutty and want to kill my husband while trying to conceive. 😉 Anyway, thank you again for sharing your life with the world (I hope you continue to blog here to share the rest of the experience with us). You are both such big-hearted, wonderful, large, shining spirits, and the little soul inside of Cori is SO blessed to be coming into the world with you two to love and guide it. I wish the three of you nothing but the best in life and love. And again, congratulations!!!

    ~jennifer

    Congrats Ladies!! I’m sure the feeling was wonderful and I’m so happy that you finally got to share it. Now comes the fun part! Be there for each other always, and know that you are truly blessed.

  120. Chloë September 11, 2011 at 1:01 pm #

    I have kept reading your blog and hoping your girls would get pregnant.
    It happened, you two did it. Well done, really. I now wish you all the best for you and your futur girl, boy. I’m an aunt, and just that brings me joy. A lot of it.
    This news made me sooo happy.

    I could not be happier for you guys. Giving me goosebumps on a Monday is a feat all in itself 🙂 This child is the luckiest child in the world. Congratulations.

  123. April September 12, 2011 at 6:55 pm #

    YAY! Congrats! I just started watching the show, and you two are my favorite. So filled with love and compassion! I am so excited for you two!

    Thinking of you going through what my partner and I are going through at the moment. The early pregnancy monitoring of checking hcg levels are going up like they should and early scans to see everything is where it should be and then later to see a heartbeat. Crossing fingers that the pregnancy sticks. Thinking positive vibes for both of us.

  125. Allyse September 13, 2011 at 2:15 am #

    I am so happy for you ladies ❤ you both deserve this!

  126. Brigid Marz (@SaylaMarz) September 13, 2011 at 6:48 pm #

    I am so happy for you. You guys are the absolute cutest, and you will make the most loving parents for such a lucky baby!

    Congratulations!! All my biggest wishes 🙂

  127. Jaq September 14, 2011 at 8:59 am #

    I cried reading this, thinking about the frustration & disappointment you showed on TRLW and also how I can’t wait for my wife and I to (hopefully) experience something like this. So happy for you two! You will be great Mommies. Congrats!

  128. Nikki Arens September 14, 2011 at 2:29 pm #

    Congratulations. How beautiful.

    congrats! how exciting. i was wondering after watching the show if things worked out for you two. it’s always a treat to hear of baby success for a couple. hope I have the same success some day soon.

  135. Misha November 17, 2011 at 8:45 pm #

    Totally sweeet! You were inseminated on august 16th. That is my birthday. Haha so cool that you both are sharing this with all of us. I’m about as hooked on this blog as I was TRLW show.! May the force be with you. 🙂

  136. Amy in small town, Texas December 25, 2011 at 10:34 pm #

    I started watching the show over the summer (at a friend’s…she is a HUGE fan of the show) and just absolutely fell in love with you guys. When the show ended, and I came home I was like, “Now I’ll never know what happens with the pregnancy!” Thank goodness for Facebook and other media sites. I’m so happy to see that you have a baby cooking away in there. Congratulations to the both of you 🙂

  137. thegoldenrope May 20, 2012 at 7:41 am #

    I have never found a beautiful couple like the two of you in my entire life. Straight, gay, bi…. you are a blessing to have witnessed and an inspiration to everyone. If it were possible I would fly to meet you, just to speak these word directly. I am more than happy for you… and I am positive the lily ceremony has delivered you the most incredible soul.. an incrediable soul search for the most inspiration honest and blessed mother. Congratulations… My thoughts will always be with you!! Alicia Charley – Australian currently living in China x0x
