We started looking into starting a family after I have turned 39years of age. There were a few reasons for that. So down the IVF journey we went. After 4 years of intensive IVF scheduals we still did not get the result we wanted. So we looked into adoption. Because of our age there were many obstacles but I kept my focus. We were not allowed to do IVF while on the adoption journey. This took us another 3 years before we received our beautiful 4.5 year old daughter. Two years on I have not given up on my hope to be able to get pregnant. But I found that there were alot of prejudice on my mind set and I looked interstate for an opportunity. I found Monash IVF in Melbourne had a more friendly and positive attitute towards my goals. After 15 months trying with them I became pregnant. And now we have a beautiful set of 4year old twins. Alls great with the children but we are homeless at the moment, staying with my ailing mother while my husband has been overseas in the last 5 years trying to bring light to our venture. The bank was less patient recalled our loans and took our home. Need I say more. It is a beautiful day today a bit on the cold side but we are all very healthy and love one another.

Post your story
  • That story is full of ups and downs, typical life story of most people I suppose. Not good that you’ve lost your home, but you have your much longed for family! There’s nothing better really. Enjoy while you can, all too soon they’ll grow up and leave you :,(


  • Hang in there


  • Wow what a road you have traveled, I hope that it its smoother soon for you


  • You’ve had your ups and downs but still you attitude is positive. Great work.


  • you have been on quite a roller coaster ride,it’s horrible to think that you’ve lost your home,but at least you now have a beautiful healthy family,everything else will fall into place.


  • Swordfish, I hope that things get better for you really soon, and that your husband can be back with you all as soon as possible.


  • You are a brave women to keep going it is so hard to find the strength to keep trying after the loss of one beautiful baby I just could not imagine the pain of yours losing 4 babies. I am so happy to hear that you finally have a loving baby now.


  • Wow. That is a lot to take on. I am not sure why your husband is overseas, is he still finalizing your daughter;s adoption? I feel for you sooooo much, you need lots of hugs and help. I can just say there is always a silver lining on every cloud, even though it seems your journey is very tough. I am sure in 5 years time, things will be so different, and so much easier. Bless you and your family <3
