Alex: We’re a family of 7.
Jessica: Yes. Three parents. We call ourselves polyfidelitous.
Alex: You can google it.
Jessica: This is as far as the, the family goes.
Jessica: No more kids. No more adults. This is the core, this is us. Um, yeah, we uh, I’m at home with the kids. I uh, volunteer at the school, and I have a little job there as a lunchroom supervisor. So I’m there constantly. And I love it. And uh, try to infiltrate the system with as much positive trans stuff as I possibly can. Fielding a lot of questions for, for Stella. And these two work at an office just down the road, together.
Tara: And so how long has the family of uh, three parents been together?
Jessica: Eight years.
Tara: Eight years! Right. And how old are your kids?
Alex: Uh the oldest are twelve.
Alex: And Stella just turned seven, and-
Darwin: I’m five!
Alex: And he’s five!
Jessica:We generally don’t tell people. Like I work at the school, nobody knows that, who biologically the younger ones came from.
