“We live a full and colourful life of laughter, love and lunacy!”

Lucy, 38, UK

I had a painful divorce in my early 30s and am now married to a wonderful man who is 20 years older than me but my absolute soulmate.

He has two grown up children and I was on the fence about kids for a long time until I realised that I loved our life exactly as it was, with our two rescue dogs Bonnie and Clive and my grown up step children we live a full and colourful life of laughter, love and lunacy!

I work with a company training anti-poaching dogs to be deployed to Africa to stop rhino poaching and I was lucky enough to go out to Zulu Land this summer to be on the front lines of anti-poaching.

My love and passion for conservation and animals fulfils me more than anything I have ever done in my life, mixed with my husband’s writing career which often takes him to India we live a varied and exciting life together which I could never see working with kids.

Our legacy shouldn’t have to just be having kids, it’s the mark we leave on the world and the way we can make things better and make people feel. Thank you for this amazing community.
