Children have always been part of my life plan.
I first investigated the possibility of co-parenting with my ex-partner and a gay man, but sadly it didn’t work out. My ex-partner was eager to have children but wasn’t interested in carrying the child herself.
I am very aware of my age (37) and the impact that could potentially have on my ability to conceive, so had started to wonder if it would ever happen.
My current partner is several years younger than me and, although she identifies as genderqueer and has a complex gender identity, she would dearly love to carry a child, so there is a real possibility that we will work towards this goal within the next few years.
