Now, here I am 13 yeas later and I have been married to a wonderful man for almost 3 years now. We share the same dream of having a big family and need some help achieving our dream.
There are people who just know that they were born to be a doctor, teacher, etc. me; I know I was born to be a mother.
We want to bring a person in to this world that is a part of both of us. I've had the chance to experience pregnancy and childbirth but, my husband has not. He loves the children we have just as if they were his own and I know he will make a wonderful father to the children we so desperately want to have.
My heart aches every day at the thought of not being able to give my husband such an amazing gift.
It pains me to see mothers out with their children. I watch other parents with their little ones and look at my husband and think someday..... and he looks at me and smiles because, we both know we are thinking and praying for the same thing.
For those of you who already have children you understand that it's easier to financially deal with issues that arise on a day to day basis than it is coming up with 10,000 at once. We are not getting any younger, fertility in mothers only lasts so long. We know that 37 is not old but, we would like to still have the energy and patience that having a child requires. I do miss the teething, crying, late night feedings and changing diapers. I miss the little giggles, the fingerpaint on the walls, the random things that kids say and all of the other stuff.
Our children that we have are 14 and 16 years old. They are excited at the possibilty of another sibling. This is not just the dream of my husband and I wanting a family, it's the dream of a family wanting to share the love, the joy, the laughter, the tears, and the challenges of life we have with someone that will be a part of all of us.
We are praying that people will read our story and see how much we long to have more children and understand that they would be assisting in fufilling the dreams of a family that already exists.
Everyone has something that they regret doing and that they wish they could go back and change, this is my regret and we are hoping and praying that we get the chance to change it.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story. We truly appreciate it.
