Oracular Offspring - part 1

In a future where processing speeds allow computers to predict the future and advancements in genetic engineering allow people to design custom children, what happens when these technologies -and a couple who haven't kept pace with post-singularity advances in technology- are combined to try to create a family? When one can not only select for simple things like gender, eye color, and hair color, but also for likely future outcomes like when and where your child will have their first kiss, or what career they'll be drawn to, how far would you be willing to go to create the child of your dreams? In part 1, Harold and Anne find themselves unable to complete PreVision Reproduction's normal interview process, then watch a detailed holographic brochure about advances in reproductive technology while they wait for something more suitable to be cooked up.
