congrats to sarah and allison!

makes you wonder what would happen if all couples could ‘take turns’ at the pregnancy lark. I would LOVE it – i’m cool with 3am feeds and even the whole childbirth carry-on…. but pregnancy really wore me down.

Congrats to the both of them. I bet she just adorable!

Congrats to them! I love the name!

Awesome news! The name Sawyer is an interesting choice, I always thought it was a last name rather than a first name. In ‘Roseanne’ Sara’s character Darlene named her baby daughter ‘Harris’, which was (her mother) Roseanne’s maiden name. I wonder if the name ‘Sawyer’ has a similar meaning for Sara?

Does anyone know who’s last name the children use? Or does Levi go by Adler and Sawyer go by Gilbert? Just curious. I’m happy for them, congrats and love both the names Levi & Sawyer. Although if Levi uses Adler as a last name I would have given him Gilbert as a middle name.

Sarah’s note: They are both Gilbert Adler.

I don’t agree with same sex couples having kids. It’s not right.

I love Sara! Congratulations to the whole family. I know she’s very private, but I hope they release a picture.

I love how lesbian couples can take turns with the pregnancies! Makes sense!

Congrats to them….

Congrats to them on their newest addition! I really like her name, it’s different without being too quirky. I love that they took turns being pregnant, that’s the one thing as a heterosexual I’m kinda sad I don’t get to do.LOL When I do have kids I’d love for my husband and I to rotate pregnancy schedules.

Did they use the same donor for both babies?

It’s still fun to think of “Darlene” being a Mommy!

Sarah’s note: Not sure. They’re extremely private.

Aww how cool for them 🙂 A new addition is always an exciting thing. I think that Sawyer is such a cute name. Congrats to them.

annonymous on

um not to be rude but are they a lesbian family? anyways congrats!!

Wouldn’t it be a trip if David Crosby was the sperm donor? j/k!

Good for them and I would love to see pictures, but the odds of that are slim to none!

Best of luck!

I wonder why there was so much secrecy around their first child and keeping his name a secret, which didn’t last anyway because we still found out his name…

but why are they so willingly to share information about their daughter? maybe they figure it’s a wasted effort??

Congrats to Sara and Allison… Sawyer is a beautiful name 🙂

My 7 month old son’s name is Sawyer James–and I thought I was being unique!! Actually I really liked the character from Lost!! Love the name.

Wow, I didn’t know she had one, nor did I know she was a lesbian.

tara on

How did both of these women get preggers if they’re lesbians? Neither one of them has a weiner, right?? I’m confused.

Maybe i am not good with my field but i am currently finishing my M.Sc in Biochemistry but how on earth lesbian can have children who comes with the sperm?????. Maybe is because i am from Africa
