I really wanted Micky to fill this out, but that is ok. Well we are the average lesbian couple with ups and downs. The downs have made us much stronger. I am 37 and my partner is 35 years old. I currently have a biological 13-year-old daughter from a heterosexual marriage…yep, once was straight. Well, after a year and half after my daughter was born, I fell madly in love with my dear Micky….. fast forward to 11 years later we have my daughter C and our niece D that is a teenager with teenager hormones.

About two years after being together we got our domestic partnership from the State of California. I would say about 7 years ago we had 11 failed IUI’s and decided to move on with our lives. Now our clock is ticking and we really want to have children. I was diagnosed with endometriosis, which has changed things for us to move forward and take the plunge of doing IVF. Thank goodness my insurance covers IVF!!
