    Hi! I’m not sure where to begin, but I am interested in having a child. My boyfriend is not able to conceive, so I am considering finding a stable gay couple (men) who are interested in having a child as well. I know it sounds strange, but it would be a 50-50 situation I guess. A shared responsibility and miracle. Pending the child would be from my egg and one of the couples sperm. Is this even a conceivable idea or no??? I just have no clue as to how to begin this process. Thanks!
