Hi! I am a single dad....or I will be in about 20 weeks. Briefly, I have always wanted children but have never found the right match. I have decided to go forward with the very expensive option of donor eggs and a gestational carrier. My daughter will be born in about 20 weeks.
I know I can do this alone....but I also know it will be extremely difficult. My first question is about childcare. I am looking for an in-home nanny, but will need back-up if the nanny is ill or can't make it for some reason. My other option is daycare...but again, what can I do with her if she is sick. I am a physician and have 2 offices where I work...one is 10 minutes from home the other is 35 minutes from home. I am just trying to sort through the logistics.
I have family who is supportive, but they live 100 miles away.
Any advice of what to expect or what to prepare for that I may not think of would be very appreciative.
Good luck to all of dads out there. I know many of you aren't doing this by choice. Here I am going into this knowing I am single and it will be a challenge,

I feel like a balloon. I dance on the wind that never ends till I pop myself. Today is the day I pop. Please enjoy life to its fullest, and don't miss me. I'm never truly gone. I just stop breathing.
