Lisa Laurey and Toni Williamson

Lisa Laurey and Toni Williamson have been together five years and have five beautiful children. Although they share parenting duties, "We have had some reluctance by doctors who question our joint decision-making for the care and treatment of our children," says Lisa, a computer aided drafter and biological mother of two of their children.

Regardless of the discrimination they face, they remain optimistic. "We have overcome most things that were denied to us," says Lisa, including rental housing denied to the family by local property owners because of their sexual orientation. "Eventually," Lisa continued, "we found an out-of-state property owner who did not discriminate."
