Halaalah with an impotent person

Q: Me and my wife love each other, but due to some misunderstanding 3 talaq occurred between us. We did not know about three talaqs but I uttered 7 to 8 times the word talaq to her. So people said that it is 3 talaqs. We do not want to separate and we do not want to break the laws of Allah so we were told about Halalah. Some friends suggested this to us. Since one person is impotent eunuch and has sympathy for us, he would like to help us if Shariah permits.

A: For the halaalah to be valid there must be intimacy and penetration.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
