Not really "Ah-Ha"!

Mark and I were able to look over the profile of the couple from Germany last night.  It wasn't an 'Ah-Ha!' moment when we read through it, so we are asking to look at a few more.  Since our main goal is to help someone become parents we have been leaning towards a couple that didn't have any children already.  That being said, we have talked it over and we would consider working with a couple that has a child/ren if we felt the match was right.

We don't want to completely rule out working with the Germany couple.  I love that they are open to having an involved relationship even though they are overseas.  I also think it is great that they have a 10 year old son, just like us.   It just didn't seem like the profile had very much information in it.   Not too much about who they are or what they do in their lives.

We were also informed that all their heterosexual couples live overseas at this point...... so looks like we will be working with an international couple no matter what.  Brings up some interesting challenges for the future  - we'll deal with those as they come up.

So - back to waiting.

    I would guess trusting your instinct would be really important, and praying a lot! Glad you know what to watch for!!!

  3. So you aren't interested in helping a homosexual couple? Two men really can't have a child on their own and need the help of a surrogate!

  4. Actually the first family I worked with was gay and I had 2 beautiful baby boys for them - they are now 6 & 8 years old. My journey with them was so wonderful I didn't think it would be fair to my future couple to compare, so I decided to work with a different family type this time around. :)
