As I sit here and think about what to write, it's hard to hold back the tears. This is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do... And I've had cancer!
So here's our story so far..
We are a fun loving, happily married couple from Brisbane in our early thirties who want a baby more than anything else in the whole wide world. When I was 16 I was diagnosed with Leukaemia. I had to undergo Chemotherapy.. lost all of my hair.. which is something huge for a 16 year old, and when I was 17 I had a Bone Marrow Transplant from my brother. Today I am happy, healthy and so glad to be alive. As a result of the chemo and transplant I have POF - Premature Ovarian Failure and are unable to conceive a child on our own. My wonderful husband knew that the possibilities of having children were slim to none before we were married, and married me anyway. He is the most amazing person I have in my life and he is without a doubt the love of my life.
We have a fantastic relationship filled with fun and laughter. We both have wonderful families, loads of gorgeous nieces and nephew's and a fantastic network of friends... Not to mention our own not so little puppy Henderson James. We love the outdoors, boating, jetskiing, camping, m&m's (plain and crispy) and getting away for the weekend when we can. We both have great jobs and so much to offer any child.
We are hoping to find a fun loving, generous lady who can help give us the chance to make our life complete. Travel is an option and we are open to other possibilities if needed. We have been through so much, but will never, ever give up. We truly believe that miracles do happen and won't stop until we have a little sprinkle of our own.
