We are Bill and Laurie. We met at work in 2013. Laurie was Bill’s boss and although we don’t work together anymore, not much has changed. We quickly fell in love and Bill proposed two years later after we had gotten to know each other well. We were married in September 2016. From the beginning, we knew we wanted children and were thrilled to start a family as soon as possible. We had no idea it would be such a heart-wrenching struggle. We have tried for 5 years unsuccessfully. After 3 IUI’s and being on an unpredictable waiting list for either an egg or embryo donation, we have come to a place of emotional and physical exhaustion. We have arrived at a belief that adoption is the perfect next step to our journey of becoming a mommy and daddy.
