We’re happy to share this great new essay by writer (& Lady Gaga impersonator) Athena Reich about her decision to use an egg & sperm donor for child #2. She’s a single mom and feels like she’s either crazy or brave (maybe both!) to expand her family without a partner; but she’s always imagined having 2 kids.
Athena hopes to meet a great woman to share her life with one day. For now, though, she doesn’t want to complicate the process, so she’s hooking up with men. (Even this surprises her! Maybe it’s the extra estrogen?!)
You may recognize Athena from the now Emmy-nominated documentary Vegas Baby or from our Toronto event.
Here’s her essay, new on pregnantish: Am I Crazy Or Brave? I’m Single And Trying For A Second Child.
Have a great weekend
