We are a same-sex couple who have been together more than 15 years. For years we have talked about how wonderful it will be to have a family, but we realized having a baby is not going to be easy for us! In recent years, our love for children have intensified when our sisters started having babies. Together we have 2 nephews (ages 7 and 2.5) and a niece (2.5 years old). We love them dearly. Finally in 2011 we were determined to make this happen so we joined various support groups and explored our options with adoption and surrogacy.
I love this picture as it represents flags of 3 nations:
- India - Where my partner is originally from, although he was born in Brooklyn, New York! (and hopefully the birth place of our future child).
- Iran - My home country where I grew up and lived until age 18.
- USA - Our current home.
Thank you for sharing this journey with us.
