    After spending Christmas with my family I came to the conclusion I want my own family. I love my family, but I really just want to one day meet someone and create my own family. I know this may sound silly; I was just wondering if anyone else has ever felt this way?

    I think we've all felt this way at some point or another. My reasoning is kinda selfish - want to carry on my awesome last name and I want to see a smaller version of myself running around.

    Times I do, times I don't. At times my heart wants 1500+ kids, at others it says none cause I'd be a bad and/or horrible dad. As for the miniature me, well let's just say it would be hell to have another one of me around lose in the city, he'd most likely go through the things I would.

    Way I see it if I had a family it would be fraternal twins one boy one girl, have cause an ex wants me to be his kids father as well as himself. Third one have my sperm and Fourth my hubbie's, then the identical twins with my guy when I separate from my hubbie for a bit (one girl older and boy younger) then the sixth one girl with the guy just before I return to my hubbie. From there can't remember how it would go for the last 1500. And I'm being totally serious icon_biggrin.gif, but only if I do want kids.

    As for hubbie yes want one, but won't be too grim if I don't get him.

    As for where we'll live San Diego in a house built to match this one only light blue:

    Isn't that house from the tv show Charmed? As I left my families yesterday all I kept thinking about is how I want to move to San Diego. Warm weather year round icon_biggrin.gif

    Any of you guys who are seriously considering it, please look into older special needs kids who are waiting a lifetime for adoption....they are a challenge, but in the end worth every fire, every heartache........My wife and I adopted two half brothers, 9 & 11 years old....they are now 28 & 30 and we couldn't love them or be prouder of them more.

    It's doable.....so think hard and long......remember, parenting doesn't have or require a rule book...........just a shitload of love and patience.......Keithicon_cool.gif

    Sometimes when I'm in the lab, wiring up mutants, or thinking about ways to improve pattern recognition and design artificial intelligence programs, yeah. I feel like making a family could be cool and wonder how my parents would feel, for example, about having an electronic grandchild. I feel like it would be easier if I used more biological parts; borrowed from the last few hundred millions years of evolutionary tinkering so the underlying psychology would be more similar to our own, and hence relatable; not sure how practical biological integration would be. But in general it's tempting and honestly a little scary, a family is a lot of responsibility. So many details it's hard to say even if I had a clear preference, who knows, I guess we'll just have to wait and see. icon_smile.gif

    Perhaps a little bit more of a doctor frankenstein urge than what you were talking about though. icon_smile.gificon_idea.gif

    I feel the same way. I love kids and hope that one day I'll have a family of my own. My sister has a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys. With any luck I'll be as lucky.

    I feel exactly the same.

    I'm surrounded my kids a lot and luckily I'm quite good with kids too.
    I babysat once for a friend of mine who gave birth just a few months ago and I really enjoyed it despite the crying.

    I'd love to have my own family one day, I really do feel like I'd be a good dad (at least I hope so).

    adoption is my #1 choice. I know it wont be easy, but then again nothing worth while is.

    During my twenties, I wanted that life... The wife the kids and etc because that's what was expected. In late 20's I had a sudden change of heart. I don't want kids ever. One day that might change but currently the desire is not there for me wanting to have a wife and kids...

    In teaching martial arts, I'm surrounded by awesome kids ages from 4 to 16... Its a pleasure teaching someone you know grow up into a great individual. In teaching I have known some kids since they were 9 and have watched them grow up into adults, have great careers, girlfriends and lives .... So in honesty my kids are my martial arts kids.

    The Halliwell Manner! I LOVE Charmed. This would be the perfect house to grow up in, no questions asked.

    Ditto, you can't let genes like mine die away when the potential is much too great.

    Whenever I think about my plans for the future, having children is something that always comes up. I definitely want to have a couple of my own biological kids in a few years when I'm in my late twenties and have started up a couple of businesses.

    I want to homeschool, partly because I want to have a real bond with my kids that I feel public school hours takes away from and partly because without public school pace and program holding them back I'm sure they'd be Olympic-class athletes and accepted into Yale by age 12. Anyone else in the homeschool boat?

    Sometimes I want kids. Then sometimes I hear a little bratty kid screaming in a restaurant and think "oh god no". I would love to see what my kid would look like and be like though. Maybe I will just donate my sperm to my best friend (lesbian) and her girlfriend haha.

    But in all honestly, I will probably want a family once I get older.

    I don't ever want kids. My brothers have kids of their own and I've pretty much helped raised them and felt like kids of my own. I take them to the movies, out to eat, to school and back sometimes. And when they were babies I would babysit and I'd change their diapers and feed 'em and put them to sleep. So I got my experience of "parenting". But personally, I got too many plans for the future that will keep me too busy to raise a family. One of them is to one day open an organization that helps homeless kids around the world. So, this lifetime no family for me. Maybe the next one.
