Jim and Bonnilynn Tungseth of Alexandria are sure they are going to make great parents. They're just not sure when that will happen.

The Tungseths have been dreaming about their future children since before they were married on December 9, 2006. They knew conceiving might be challenging, because Bonni suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome, a common female endocrine disorder.


They spent a few years pursuing various fertility treatments before venturing down a different path.
