Overjoyed and terrified at the same time
“I called my mum after our first IVF attempt to tell her we might be expecting within a month. We both cried. She’d gone through a similar experience before she adopted me.”
“I’ve never felt so inadequate.”
“The first year was a nightmare. He cried constantly but there wasn’t a lot I could do to comfort him. He just wanted his mum.”
“I just wanted other guys to share that experience with.”
“Becoming a father is actually a big thing. But no-one asked me how I felt. The midwife only talked to my wife.”
