The Yorksmith family -- Pam, 42, Nicole, 35, and sons Grayden, 4, and Orion, 7 months -- at their home in the Cincinnati area, on Sunday, Jan. The Yorksmiths were married in 2008 in San Francisco.

The Cincinnati hospital refused to recognize her as a parent.

My advice to any queer woman looking for women on dating apps is to not stress.Now that I’m in college, I’ve seen many happy lesbian couples who met both in real life, and on dating apps.Pam Yorksmith, on the phone with her pediatrician in the middle of the night last October, took off Orion's shirt, as instructed, to watch him breathe.
