Hello, Thank you for allowing us to join your forum. We are a happy and fun loving couple who are looking forward to starting the next chapter of our lives. We are very excited to be starting on this amazing journey. We hope you will enjoy reading our story.
THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE. PLEASE MAKE OUR WISH COME TRUE.
Our names are Sandra and Wayne. I am 48 years old and Wayne is 54 years old and have married later in life. We are both late bloomers and in the process, time has gotten away from us. We have tried to conceive naturally and considered IVF but our specialist advised there would be more chance of success with suitable donor eggs.
We have been together for 21 years and married for 14 years and we live in our lovely home located in the north west of Melbourne with our furry child, Lucky.
In the last few years we have taken up travelling and discovered that the world is a really amazing place. Unfortunately we also discovered it can be a lonely place. After the chaos and excitement of some of the most busy places on Earth we realised we could use a bit more chaos and excitement in our lives. We don't have any other expectations other than our child to be as happy and loved and as well educated as possible.
We both have strong maternal instincts and come from large extended families so our child would have lots of cousins. I work with children on a daily basis and love them. I work as a School Crossing Supervisor and Wayne is an Accountant. I also work casual as a Clerk. Wayne is really good with his nieces and nephews. My friend says I am a natural around her baby. We both interact well with children.We are financially secure with a good home. We also have a good support network. Both sides of our families have a strong academic background and I have a sister who is a registered nurse. We both look younger for our ages and are very fit people. We love running and walking and I do yoga regularly. We both love travelling, having travelled extensively around Australia and twice to Europe. Lots of pictures to show our child. We both love animals and have a cat whom we adore. We lead a healthy lifestyle.
Our journey has been going on before we met. It goes back to when my grandfather bought his young family over from Italy and when Wayne's father gave up everything to bring four children by himself. Their only aim was to give their children a better life than they had. Now it's our turn. It's taken a bit longer than we hope but we have everything to make a happy home. We owe it to them, we owe it to our child and you can help.
We are looking for a donor aged 35 years old and younger. We are not really looking for any characteristics but if you have a bright outlook that would be a bonus because our dream is to raise a happy child. We are both open to to have a donor anywhere in Australia as well as within Victoria. If you are not able to come to our Melbourne clinic, we can travel to you. We would like the donor to be in good general health.
As you are taking the time to consider our request it goes without saying that you have a caring and generous soul. These are the exact traits we would wish for in our child as we would hope for someone who would leave this world a better place than they came into. It's not to say that the world isn't wonderful now but isn't it every parent's dream for their child to have a better life?
We would like to keep in contact during the process as well as afterwards. You would be part of our family if you wish to remain in contact with us. We would welcome you with open arms in our house. That is the kind of people Wayne and I are. We will respect your wishes too if you prefer not to remain in contact with us. We are aware that our child would be able to contact the donor upon turning 18 years old. We will leave the decision up to our child on how they decide. We believe that our child should know of their conception so we will be pretty much direct and open to our child. Of course, all medical expenses and travel costs will be reimbursed.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story. If you like what you have read, please feel free to contact us.
