Like a lot of women, I always wanted to be a mum, growing up it was always something I knew I wanted to be when I was older... But I learnt at an early age that I would never be able to carry my own child because I was born a boy. Yes, I am transgender. I knew age 11 I should be a woman and began my transition as a teenager. During my transistion I was able to freeze my own sperm as I wanted to have my own child, but I also needed to have gender reassignment surgery which meant I would never be able to create a child naturally. I completed my transition 7 years ago and over them seven years I have grown into a determined and grounded lady. I have great family and friends but most importantly I found the love of my life, Stuart, two years ago.
We want to have a family of our own but to do this we need a surrogate. We will use my sperm to ferilise the egg. The magic of science allows this to happen but it is expensive, I have recently learnt it will cost £25,000 to make our dreams a reality. With your help help me and become part of my journey.
