An ESP Gathering
One of the reasons Amy and I came to the decision (which took months of pondering) to start this website was the desire to connect with other like-minded couples. When we were first putting our philosophies into words, we didn't know anyone else living like this. And now, we find 'our people' everywhere we look - in greetings in our email inboxes from as far away as Nepal and China to, ironically, neighbors living within blocks of our own house.
A few months ago, we had the pleasure of gathering a few of these couples in our home for a first-ever ESP dinner party. The occasion was a group interview for a news story on equally shared parenting that will be revealed later today (stay tuned). Having 9 other couples in the same room who valued equal sharing as much as we do was an honor. Each family had a twist on what was most important to them about their arrangement, how they got there, how they keep it alive, and why they choose to buck tradition so purposefully.
Amy and I loved hearing their stories. We hope this is the beginning of many ESP gatherings - here, there, everywhere. Here's a picture of the historic event:
