I’ve never not wanted children. When I had my first same-sex relationship, thinking about whether or not I’d have children in a same-sex relationship was a big part of working out what my future would look like.
About three years ago, my partner was in her mid-30s, I was in my early 30s, and we’d both finally got stable jobs and bought a house. We spent a long time discussing how we’d like to get pregnant and what sort of family structure we’d like.
We’re trying to conceive using donor sperm (unknown donor, using a local fertility clinic). We plan to have children in the near future, but obviously it’s not 100% in our control.
