My partner and I are in the early stages of research and planning. We will be getting married in the summer of 2008 and don’t plan on trying to add a child into our lives until 2-3 years after that. However, we are trying to conduct all of the necessary research now so that we can figure out exactly what to do.
The main thing is the confusion and frustration that this process (even in the preliminary stage) can bring about. Conversations concerning known donors and unknown donors, should we ask a friend, even though we have the urge/desire/yearning/drive/love to parent should we be parenting. The list goes on and I.
I guess we I am just looking for some advice on how to go about this whole process. My partner and I are currently reading The Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy for Lesbians: How to Stay Sane and Care for Yourself from Pre-conception through Birth, 2nd Edition
Just looking for advice.
