Long-Awaited Child - The Book!
I am so excited to announce that I am currently taking pre-orders for my soon to be released book, Long-Awaited Child. This is my very own personal story of my eight year journey to have a family of my own.
You see falling pregnant did not come easy for me and that really shocked me. All those years I took precautions not to fall pregnant only to find that it was not as easy as finding the right guy you wanted to settle down with and you know, "doing it!!"
My story, Long-Awaited Child, covers my 8 year journey from when I was 31 and first trying to have a baby with my partner, Ian, to finally being a Mummy at 39. Trust me when I say these years were not easy, cause they really were not. It was during these years it was time for my strength and resilience to shine. Being a Mum was something I wanted, and there was no stopping me!
Writing my story has been something I have wanted to do since my twins were born, well in fact before they were born, but we knew they were on their way. Time just flies by and with having two little ones and moving a few times during that time, life has been pretty busy, however it was always in the back of my mind and when this year rolled around I knew this was the year I was going to really share my story.
I have loved every moment of writing the book, my story. It brought back all the memories of our journey and trust me when I say there were plenty of tears along the way reliving all we had been through. I truly love my story and would not change it for the world.
I hope my story will help to inspire anyone who is about to start, or is going through a journey similar to mine to not give up and if it is really what you want, to try every possible avenue. Don't doubt yourself, you have got this!
Repeat after me: "My current situation is not my final destination."
Also for anyone who has a sister, best friend or daughter going through fertility struggles, I know you are probably wishing you can fix this, their infertility issues, for them, but you can't. You just have to let them ride the wave and do what is best for themselves. They may need you or may not but either way you need to be ok with this. Trust me when I say it is not an easy journey, so you need to let them do it their way and just be there for support if needed.
