I never wanted to be a mom. It always felt like it wasn’t something for me. I had nothing against kids, but I always thought I wouldn’t be good at it. I only saw all the inconvenience. Same sex parenting or not. And then I met her.
The love of my life
We started dating, I fell deeply in love. Our relationship became stronger and stronger and we suddenly couldn’t imagine any future without each other. I quickly realized that she was the one for me, the love of my life. I would have done anything for her, for us. Time passed and with my growing feelings came new desires.
The two strong desires I had never had with anybody: wedding & kids. I was the most surprised, believe me! But what made everything easier was the fact that she felt exactly the same. She was never into long relationships and never wanted to have kids or be married.
She was always a spontaneous woman, a free spirit. But she fell in love with me the same way I did. She wanted to build something strong with me, a long lasting engagement and she smiled every time she talked about our potential wedding. She seemed so happy to see herself with me and even with a little us.
We started to talk more and more about it. And then I proposed to her. We decided to quit our jobs in Berlin to start to travel all over the world. And here we are, abroad, ready for adventure.
I can’t help thinking about another kind of adventure. I can’t stop this beautiful movie playing in my mind: the love of my life giving birth to our child. How amazing must that feel? I know it will be the greatest day of my life.
I see her in our home, holding this little piece of life. My heart is burning from joy and happiness, the tears are running on my cheeks and the smile on my face almost hurts.
