Any males decide to have their own kids by surrogacy? Currently 32, and want to have my own kid by 38-40. Want to save up 100k for it. Any insights to keep in mind of?

OP, I’m a gay married 🐠 and we plan to do surrogacy for our family.

I was just thinking the same. 30 yo - I definitely want to have kids. And may be sooner than later. I think it will give me a purpose to live. Once I figure out where I want to settle - hopefully in a country that allows me either to adopt a child or have one through surrogacy. I am definitely going for it.

Just a thought, why not adopt someone from other developing countries? You are giving life to someone. Karma will follow you. That money can change lives of a few thousand kids. Am not against surrogacy or anything.

And we need to have a lot of money to go through surrogacy

But why Surrogacy?

For gay (and often times single) dudes like us. Adoption is another option, but I guess single gay men are at the end of the queue there.

Why do you need $100k saved up first? I have 3 kids. Kids don’t cost anywhere near $100k. Kids are cheap with the exception of childcare

Got it. Didn’t know that. Take a loan out don’t wait. Kids are great.

Ps I think there might be an Accenture benefit for assistance with the cost of surrogacy. Not sure if you’ve checked yet!

Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.

I took it upon myself to reach out to the parents and let them know I've already called the cops but wanted to reach out to you first before the cop shows up on your door. 1 set of parents immediately shifted blame to me and bashed me as a teacher and told me they think I have it out for their son and didn't address the situation at hand. How can I move forward with this situation?

The recent most billable hours post, inspired me. What is your longest billable day? Mine was 56 hours straight with no break—and the partner was more than a jerk when I was saying no more at the 30 hour point. That was two 24 hour billable days back to back on my time sheet and on the bill, a 360 hour month, and 650 aggregated for two months. And it is one reason (of so many reasons) why this job can suck so much! At least I got a good bonus...

Got promoted to senior but did not get a raise to go with it. Firm keeping salaries flat this year due to COVID-19, but I was shocked when I found out promoted staff wouldn’t be getting a raise either. To me, this whole thing rings hollow because the firm has told us multiple times that they were projecting flat growth for the year when compared to last year (which was one of the best in firm history). So it pisses me off that they shot their mouth off about how great year last year was...cont
