The Preferred Egg Donor

July 5, 2015
The process if choosing an egg donor. I must admit, not an easy one. Before looking at the profiles of the egg donors I thought “for sure it will be an easy task”. I am about 40egg donor profiles after, and it’s not quite as I imagined. Is it the egg donor’s looks that I should decide upon? Egg donor’s health? Should I be paying attention to how educated the egg donor is? Her personality? I had given the egg donation ordeal quite some thought. What should my decision be based on? For days I reviewed the egg donors profiles, finally managed to narrow it down to my 10 favorite egg donors. That definitely made me feel great.
I finally decided that the most important thing for me is the egg donor’s health, and her looks. As for the the rest – education and personality – I plan to provide my baby a safe and loving environment where he or she can flourish, and I have no doubt my baby will become the amazing person that I wish her to be.
Of course I always keep in mind, one side to this is the egg donor, her looks, traits, personality, still there is always the other half – my half (-:

It’s summer time. While the biggest worry for some of us is where to spend the next vacation, or to limit those ice cream dosages so that the bathing suit will stay in tact, I would like to share with you the concern of my very proud, gay-dads-to-be friends, who have began the journey of gay surrogacy. They are a couple just like every other couple you run into. Mid thirties, Dave is a lawyer, and Jonathan is a high school teacher. They met, fell in love, decided they wanted to live happily ever after, did the thing all couples do – got married, and lived their life just like everyone else. Some days super happy, other days grumpy. It’s called life. At some point they decided it was time to turn from a couple to a couple with a baby. A family. Sure, not being able to physically get pregnant was an obstacle, but they knew they had options. At the end of the day, in the year 2015, if you can fly to outer space, find a friend that went to primary school with you in the other side of the world using the tip of your finger, in a world where everything is possible, surely two men can have a baby. It’s called gay surrogacy. Unfortunately, gay surrogacy is not legal everywhere in the world. Gay surrogacy is legal mainly in Nepal, Mexico and the US. My friends chose to go with the option of gay surrogacy in Mexico. They started the process – genetic tests, choosing an egg donor, su

I always knew I wanted to have a family. I wasn’t sure how many children I would have, who I would marry, where we will live. However, I knew that I would have a family. My own family.

Unlike others who choose to have a family, for me it was challenging. You see, since childhood, I have always known that I was gay. I knew that before I knew what was the meaning of it. What my life would look like. It was who I was, and I never tried to change it or ignore it. I accepted it since the day I realized that’s who I am.
The fact that I was gay, and the fact that I was determined to have a family, these 2 facts found it difficult to co exist. I wasn’t sure how it would work, but I wasn’t going to give up on my dream.
Like many other people, I went to school, graduated, travelled the world, fell in and out of love, experienced, learned. Lived. At some point I was in a relationship and felt that I was ready to tie the knot. Just like anyone else. I was married for a couple of years, and my husband and I started talking about having kids. Just like anyone else. As opposed to the days when I was growing up, it seemed like today we actually have options to live the dream. To become a family. To bring our own kids into this world and raise them as one family. The option, by the way, is called gay surrogacy. How simple. How complex. I was

My daughter came back from school looking a bit confused. Although I was in the middle of a day dream about a beautiful Chanel purse that I saw in the mall today, I was determined to find out what it was that she quite didn’t manage to figure out. After all, the child is a genius (she takes after her father).
She starts telling me about her after school adventures. She met a boy today. (Oh no, she is only 8 years old!) Her new friend showed her his photo album. There was a picture of his dog (I hope she won’t ask me to get one). And a picture of his room (he doesn’t share a room with his siblings). And a picture of his new red extra cool bike (I can’t compete with THAT). And a picture of his dad (ok babe, you also got one!). And hid other dad. Is this the part where I get to explain about gay surrogacy? Or perhaps I should explain first how babies come to the world? The birds and the bees, yes, not so difficult to explain, but two male birds having a baby bird? How does that happen?
It got me thinking. A long long time ago this is how it worked: a guy and a girl would go out, date each other for a short, or a long period of time, have a big (or small) wedding, most likely buy a house, and start a family. You know, a mom, a dad, two or three kids. A family. And it was like that for a long time. In a lot of places. All around the world. So in the case that you were single, most l
