Our conception story is one for the books. As a same-sex couple, we knew our journey would probably take place in a clinical setting, but we did everything possible to avoid that. We wanted it to not be “a procedure” but rather an intimate experience, the same way that straight couple (with no fertility issues) get to experience. That led us to find Mosie! After finding the perfect donor and working out all the details, we flew out to our donor’s city where we enjoyed a wonderful getaway weekend that ended with the intimate artificial insemination. It was great having the non-gestational mom play such a big part of the process, and we can’t wait to start inseminating AGAIN in January so that non-gestational mom gets to carry too.
