We grew up in neighboring housing tracks, attended the same grade school and high school, but never knew each other. As fate would have it, we met 18 years after high school, while country western dancing. We married and talked of starting a family. After several tests, two operations, two attempts at invitro-fertilization, and an emotional rollercoaster ride, our worst fears were realized. However, our main goal is to have a family and we are immensely grateful for the opportunity to adopt a child. Both our families, who have been aware of our struggle to become parents, are also excited and completely supportive of our decision to adopt.
