Dear fathers, you have taught me that I only need 1 father, that is the Lord himself.
If there is anything more strange to many people it is when a member of the LGBT+ community decides to have a family. Particularly someone transgender. Being a transgender male in a relationship with another individual that is also AFAB [Assigned Female at Birth] has its perks. We get to decide when we want to start a family on our own terms. Which means we can more accurately predict when we have managed to concieve. It's a perk, but it has its own downfalls at the same time. We have to rely on a donor. Finding a donor is complicated. If you do not go through a clinic you have to do things at home which means either going somewhere to buy a donation or find a website that has listed donors.
My mom is the epitome of what we should all be more like.

The world is quiet. The streets are empty, and the world is constricted with silent tension. Each morning we awake with news on the current spread of the virus, and each evening we go to sleep, with images of new stories and data sheets and charts dancing around in our heads. The world is silent outside of our doors, and we do what we can to be okay every day, both physically and mentally.
As a mom, you're no stranger to how demanding parenting can be. And because of that, you've got to make sure your health is a priority so you can really nail the mom thing. And just in case you need a little refresher as to why your health is so important, here's some food for thought.
As a child I didn't see much of my father I wasn't good enough to keep around or I was unwanted, or at least this is what I was told. As a mother, I couldn't help but take the time to watch my kids grow and play with their father and wonder how a person, a father, or mother could send their daughter to another to raise let across seas. Yes, you read this right across seas. I was the daughter of a woman who loved me greatly but also the daughter to a father who didn't want a girl, so I was packed up and sent to my grandmother at the young age of four years old, who lived in beautiful London, England.
Do present and loving dads really matter in the lives of their sons and daughters? Read on for even more evidence on how critical it can be to a fulfilling life.
Whether you are a stay-at-home mom or a mom who works both inside and outside the home, you are no doubt busy for about 18 hours of the day (if not longer). It is no surprise that you are exhausted at the end of the day, but what can you do about it? Well, short of hiring a nanny (a luxury most of us can’t afford), the next best thing you can do is to make sure that you take care of yourself.
