A Simple Mans Quest
I've come to terms with what I just wrote, the one thing that legitimately bothers me? Not having children yet. My biggest fear is that I will be that old man with young children, with the fear that I would pass on while they are young. Or being too old to connect with them.
For quite some time I've been debating about the idea of having a surrogate carry my baby. However, my biggest grip is that I can't go through some random place, with someone I never knew and be forever connected to them. Is it crazy to believe that I can have and want a friend carry and actually share in the raising of a child? Or to think we can be good friends while doing so?
