We're looking for writers for our Babies issue on topics such as: Did becoming pregnant cause unanticipated religious issues between you and your spouse? How did you choose a religious welcoming ceremony for your child, or did you choose not to have one? How did you tell your parents about the religion you chose for your child, or did you find yourselves unable to choose?
For our Identity issue, if you're a child of intermarried parents, if you have identity conflicts, do they come from the way you are treated by the Jewish community, or are they due to not wanting to choose between your parents?
