My civil partner and I have two children each. Our kids are now 22, 20, 19 and 16.
I first became aware I wanted children when I was 31. I had married – wrongly!
It would take too long to tell my story. We’ve faced homophobia by the eldest child and in the education system. It’s hard work and difficult accepting others find us hard to accept.
Gay Dads Scotland was our main source of support.
Don’t get married to have kids. Accept your life may be easier without children.
