Thank goodness you posted this! I thought you might not be announcing it for some reason. Here is a question, since this used to a pregnancy blog: are you thinking of having a child together? I know it is a pretty complicated undertaking for you, but gotta admit, I'm curious!

That makes sense to me. I think I misunderstood your original post, but now I think I get it. If I am understanding you correctly, youre talking about your process, not the way that you will think about the child or encourage the child to think about his/her parentage. I think that mourning the genetic connection is something that may happen in stages: now, again when the child is born and you dont get to play the hey, he has uncle Joes ears! game (although sometimes that works out anyway), later when the story actually gets woven into the childs life narrative, etc. I dont think that its necessarily something that you can get out of the way all at once. Its really self-aware of you to notice your own constructions of paternity and how they are designed to soothe your own feelings. Its probably a good idea to peek around the corners of those constructions to see what might be lurking there, but at the same time, I imagine that some things may both look and feel different when there is an actual child in the picture. Regardless, I really appreciate your sharing. Its absolutely fascinating stuff. I sometimes find myself alarmed to realize that my own logic (e.g., the argument that gestational mothers ARE critically important for development) often collides with my political views (surrogacy isnt a form of motherhood, but rather an act analogous to e.g., bone marrow donation). This really is a brave new world that were living in.
