Hi, we are Matt and Todd. We are a gay male couple who has been in a committed relationship for over 8 years. We have talked about having children almost from the beginning, and well now, it feels like the right time to start taking steps.
So far it seems a little intimidating and even lonely. "Traditional" families (what does that mean anyways?) are created in a much easier way and by people who are members of a club that we don't fit in with. And there is of course the issue of a same sex couple having children, which is still a social taboo to some, including Todd's Mother, who for the most part has been able to come around to his 'alternative' lifestyle and even embrace it.
A gay male couple having children is not something she (or others) have a very easy time accepting.
We however cannot get bogged down in what other people think. We have so much love for each other and for life. We want to share this and bring up a little being(s) with all we have to offer.
