We each have children from previous marriages. However, we have been unable to have a baby together, after trying for almost twelve years. What we want most in this world is to raise a baby together, as we believe we are soulmates, made for each other, and have so much to give a child who is raised by both of us. At this point, I am not able to carry a baby.
We are an engaged, hetero couple. We have been together for 13 years. I am a writer. I work from home. He is Indonesian, by birth. He is a graduate student in Energy Systems Engineering. We are a tight-knit, loving family. His kids have been homeschooled. Mine have not. Each of them have excelled in their own way.
We have so much respect for each of you who have found it within yourself to give such a beautiful gift to parents like us. We want you to know that we are loving, generous parents. We have complimentary interests and gifts, he in math and science, me within the arts. Our baby will get the best of each of us, our educations, and our experiences, and so much love. We have tried for so long, and grieved so many times. Nothing could be more precious to us, and we will be eternally grateful.
