When Sam, who is trans, and Lissa, who identifies as queer, met at a New Year’s Eve party, they immediately fell in love. They also discovered that they both wanted to start a family.
Sam had actually gone off hormones some years before in hopes of having a biological child. But the prospect of carrying a pregnancy as a single dad was not ideal. So when he met Lissa, they decided to create an embryo using Sam’s egg and donor sperm that Lissa would then carry.
In the first of a series of videos, we get to follow the couple right at the very moment of the embryo transfer and discover whether or not Lissa will become pregnant.
Watch their story unfold in our Love section.
