"It" has a Name!
I have learned by doing research that having a child on my own via a sperm donor actually has a name. No, the name isn't "crazy" or "ridiculous". I am what "they" call a Single Mother by Choice (SMC- it even has an acronym!). Right now I am a "thinker" because it is something I am considering doing. There are also "tryers" who are currently trying to get pregnant or adopt. Will I ever be a "tryer"? Maybe. Hopefully. I have ordered a couple of books about being a SMC, and I look forward to reading them and learning more. If anything, I hope it gives me the confidence to do this. My plan is to try in May of 2011, and while that seems far away, it seems too close and makes me nervous!
