I can’t believe how lucky I am to finally have the child that I had waited so long to come along. I am 42 years old and unlike most people think I didn’t wait to get married or to have a child, I didn’t put my career first or naively believe that you can just have kids whenever you like. I didn’t put off having a child to travel or be selfish in any way. I was just unfortunate that I didn’t meet the love of my life until I was 40 and even then we didn’t put off ‘trying’ as many people believe.
We were lucky in that we conceived on our honeymoon only to lose that child at 9 weeks. We then endured 4 rounds of IVF, 2 more miscarriages and many procedures, injections and disappointments. In the end it was all worth it and as I look at my husband and our boy playing together I know what it was all for and what my life is now about.
I am so thankful for what I have and always will be.
