    I'm open to it. I don't have this drive to make a baby as of yet but I can see myself embracing a future husbands kids if he has any or even getting involved in foster care and adoption.

    Edit to add that I once dated a guy briefly who was afraid to tell me he had a son. When he finally told me he presented it in a reluctant way. Acting very cautious like he was telling me he had a 6th toe on one foot. Like I'd be mortified over the news. My response was nothing but praise and admiration and he acted surprised. He then went on to tell me that for some reason for many it was a deal breaker. I suppose that might happen but I was a bit surprised.

    Nah, I'd rather get a domestic...they're cheaper and they don't talk back.

    If I was your domestic I would talk back icon_twisted.gif I bet you have impossible standards.

    My partner and I spent yesterday with his 7-year old nephew and 5-year old niece. We took them 5-pin bowling and had a great time. I kind of wish I could have kids but I am HIV+ and I am now too old to think about raising them. I would be in my late 60's by the time they were graduating from university.

    You just want a good beating. icon_wink.gif

    To tell the truth, I've always wanted 2 boys and 2 girls. I only have 1 sibling, but I have a whole host of aunts, uncles, and cousins, and think having a large family is the greatest thing, especially as we're all so close.

    Depends what you are beating me with! icon_razz.gif

    My partner comes from a large family. His nephews and nieces are already in the double digits, and they are very cute (Filipino kids are adorably cute). I have gone to his family celebrations and have felt a bit overwhelmed with all the siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. Easily over 30 people. My family is typical WASP, never more than 12 people at a gathering.

    My mother is 1 of 12 children, my father 1 of 10...so family gatherings often out-number small towns.

    I have one but I am not involved in his life what so ever only because it's how the arrangement went. I've seen him twice in his 5 years on this Earth, a day after his was born and his 5th birthday. I know his with a great couple and they love him dearly and they know I would never involve myself in his life until he wanted to know more about me and my family and the like. (he was conceived because the couple needed a sperm donor because the guy couldn't produce healthy sperm, they had asked me cause at the time we were close and they knew I wouldn't make things difficult in terms of the child and rights, so I did the deed and bam months later he was here, he looks like me when I was a child and when he get a little older they will tell him, I think 15 was the agreed age we all agreed on so that way he could understand why it was done and why I'm not around (they know I'm gay and at the time I made it clear I have no time for kids because of my busy life, bartender, business, dreams and ambitions and the like) so yeah I'm totally rambling here AGAIN)

    One day I'd like to have a child from the start and raise the child with a guy I love and who wants to, I mean I'm a family man thick and thin but I also know that it's highly unlikely but I can dream.

    That is neat! My dad was an only child and my mom has one brother (although he did have 7 kids and then adopted two). My partner finds our family get togethers very quiet, totally unlike his. When went to my uncle's 80th birthday and were surrounded by 8 first cousins and their 19? kids, he felt more at home. It was total chaos, but fun.

    As my father always said, "I love children. As long as they are cooked well."

    I would welcome the opportunity only if I was able to provide them an exceptional life. I would never bring children into this world to satisfy my own needs.

    I want at least one kid, and have two lesbians who are willing to do it once we're settled into our careers.

    I've already got more children than I can handle. Here's a snapshot of a bunch of the little buggers. This just doesn't come close to representing the size of my brood.

    There are days that I spend with my god-daughter that make me wish I had my own kids, then there are days where I'm glad I get to go home to where it's quiet and clean. I think I have the best of both worlds right now, so I'm pretty content.

    Maybe someday. Of course, if for some reason or other I was the only choice as a father for the kid, I just might take up that mantle.

    I always envisioned myself with a beautiful wife and a few children and living in the suburbs. lol But doing that wouldn't only hurt me in the long run but those i dragged into it with me, so I placed that dream to rest. I still want biological children though, (3 to 5).

    It must be an amazing feeling to create and bring new life into the world.
