I'm actually transgender (FtM) and even before I came out as such I was told if I ever wanted to have a child of my own I would be extremely high risk. My partner has raised kids but never had the chance to have his own either. So, after a friend brought up that they were looking into surrogates my partner and I discussed doing the same thing, It wasn't something we had always considered but with little options available to us we want to go for it.
My partner and I have been together for nearly 4 years, we're happily engaged to be married later this year. He is a trucker while I'm a novelist and editor. We'll be purchasing a home in July with an acre of land for horses and livestock and would like to complete our family.
