This is the amazing true story of Kellie Harriden, a woman who travelled across continents to beat the odds in order to fulfil her quest to be a mother.  


After living and working overseas, Kellie returned home to Australia where she met Ian. Together, they settled into an almost perfect life, with one exception - they yearned for a child to love. As they excitedly prepare to start a family, they battled one obstacle after another, but they continued on, determined to become the proud parents of their long-awaited child.

Long-Awaited Child is the story of Kellie's own personal experiences and research with IVF, foster care, adoption, donor and surrogacy. 
Also includes IVF and adoption stories from other mothers.
