EPISODE 3: DONOR DELIBERATIONS

 


O ne day, soon after I left school, my mother told me that she wanted me to have a baby one day and she didn’€™t care how I did it, even if I did it alone, as long as I did it. I was a bit taken aback. Of course I’d have a baby one day. I’d always known I would.

I imagined I’d do it the way school girls imagine they’ll do it: I’d fall in love with a man, he’€™d fall in love with me, and the family would naturally follow.
It took me another decade to come out.
