Scrambled Eggs

Recently the Spousal Equivalent had her "Tubes Tied" (actually they were clamps made to pinch them shut I believe.) This was the end result of a conversation that I believe started shortly after we moved in together about 2 1/2 years ago. It was never brought up on purpose, it would just come in conversation ever so often.

We realized and agreed that we were not in a 'place' in our life to have children and if was only a few years off it would not be safe for her to be carrying and give birth. This led to the final decision of having her 'baby maker shut off' (FYI at the end of the day, it is ultimately her decision.) but this is not the end of children; there is always 'second hand kids'.

Adoption and/or fostering is always an option when we get into that 'place'. In fact we decided if we do we focus on LGBT youth given they are hard to place along with the rise of homeless LGBT youth. All in good time.
