We certainly had great reservations about asking for money but it is our only chance to help make our deepest wish, our dream come true. I met my husband when I was 38. I was so happy to have met a man who I could finally have children with. I had never worried about not being able to fall pregnant and didn’t consider my age a factor. I have had cervical surgery twice. After four years of trying we have failed. This has been devastating as the only motive which kept me going, before I met my husband was the joy of becoming a mother. This kept me fighting to survive, the prospect of having a baby. I have always wanted to be a mum. After our obstetrician told us the bad news, I told my husband to leave me for a younger woman who could give him a baby. I did not want him to sacrifice the joy of being a father. My desire to have a baby, along with hope and the love and support of my husband, keeps me going. I believe a baby would help me to heal. We are two people living off one wage as I have been unwell recently and had to stop working this year. As the estimated cost, not including airfares and accommodation is approximately US$25 000 - $30 000 we are unable to afford to do this by ourselves. No contribution is too small and our gratitude can never be under estimated. I am too old to adopt and unable to conceive which is why we have to go with a surrogate mother. Please help our dream to come true. With all our love and sincerity,
Alex and Christine.
