Jennifer Sprague is a mom of triplets who are nearly 1 year old. She lives in Columbia with her wife and children. She wrote this essay a year ago when she was pregnant with her children. She is sharing this essay now because she recently realized that the University Hospital, while requiring its employees to be non-discriminatory, still does not offer same-sex benefits.
