Is Travis Mayfield Married | Travis Mayfield Dad
Travis was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. He went to Jr. High and High School in Port Orchard. Travis graduated from Gonzaga University in Spokane. He has worked as a broadcast journalists in Central Washington, Eastern Washington and in Western Washington. This is where Travis met his husband Curtis. Travis lives in Seattle’s Montlake neighborhood with his husband, kids and dog.
Travis, practically glows every time he talks about his “kiddos.” Part of that glow is a little bit of a daze from a lack of sleep after their twins Eleanor and Thomas turned 2 years old. Curtis and Travis became domestic partners in 2010 and legally married in 2013. Curtis admits that kids were not really on his mind during that first date, but he stayed open to the idea.The couple evaluated every path toward fatherhood. After a years-long journey, they chose surrogacy.Both men spent months of time and research on different adoption plans before opting for surrogacy. Travis highlights that all gay families need to take that same journey and consider all the options — not just for their future children, but for themselves. Surrogacy made the most sense for his family with Curtis, and Travis admits he felt blessed that the two could pursue that route.
When the couple decided on surrogacy, they explored using a family member as the egg donor. “We put almost a year into that, and we realized it wasn’t going to work,” Travis says. “I realized that we needed to take a break from this. I’m glad we did. I realized I needed that time to work through some of the emotional issues that had come up during the process. I think it was important I did that.”
The couple’s hard work paid off. They found an egg donor, a surrogate and a helpful lawyer. Although paid surrogacy was illegal in Washington, they worked with their lawyer to secure everything they needed in Portland, Oregon, a three-hour drive from Seattle. The two decided Curtis would be the sperm donor.
A software engineer for Microsoft, Curtis could claim much of the costly surrogacy process as “infertility treatments” under his company health insurance. Travis, the man who couldn’t wait until the dessert course to start bringing up babies, never cared about the biological link to his children.
Now the two dads Daddy for Travis, the Cantonese Baba for Curtis couldn’t be happier with their choices. And Travis has embraced his chance not only to have a family, but to share his family with others.
