International Family Equality Day

May 2, 2015
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 skeptic at first. Didn’t seem possible to me. As we looked at the alternative (not to have a family) we decided to go down this road. It was sometimes a bumpy road, a long journey. Waiting for the heart beat was nerve wrecking. Ups. And downs. Excitement and fear. “Just like being pregnant” my sister said.
You know where the starting point is, but you can’t predict where the finish line is, or how long it would take you to get there.

Our son is turning 5 years old in early May. We are expecting our second baby girl to arrive on mid August.  Pure joy.

I want to take this opportunity and wish my son happy birthday, and many returns. I want to tell him that I love him, he has brought so much happiness to my life.  I want to tell him that he is exactly as I dreamed he would be. He makes me the dad that I am.
I also want to tell our super generous anonymous egg donor: THANK YOU. And I want to tell our much loved and appreciated SM: THANK YOU. The two of you helped me make my dream come true.  You gave my son – his life. You have me an amazing family. I am forever grateful.
On May 3rd we will be celebrating ‘International  Family Equality Day’. I wanted to say to all families out there; of all forms, shapes, colors, races, sexes: happy family day to everyone! Wishing you and your loved ones all the best!
