You get married, go on honeymoon, get the white picket fence, fall pregnant, have babies and live happily ever after right? Well, apparently not. This is the TRUE STORY of a couple’s very real battle with childlessness and their endless efforts to make their dream of having a baby come true. With brutal honesty and witty humor the reader is taken on a roller coaster ride of pain, laughter, disappointment, heartbreak, loss and ultimately incredible happiness albeit with a tear.
This book does not only tell their very intimate tale of INFERTILITY, numerous fertility treatments, MISCARRIAGES and their ADOPTION journey, but it is also an invaluable SOURCE OF INFORMATION on these subjects. So together with an intensely personal glimpse into the writer’s life (which is sometimes uncomfortably so); you are presented with the raw facts that you rarely read about in other books. To my knowledge, there is currently NO other book on the market with all three these elements!
Yes, you are presented with cold hard facts. Yes, it’s going to touch your heart in an unexpected and even unsettling way. But this harsh and unforgiving mission is softened by an intimate look into the author’s seven year battle with the monster that is infertility. It is filled with anguish and pain with every failed IVF-attempt, miscarriages and feelings of hopelessness and despair, yet it empowers you with knowledge and know-how to handle a similar scenario should that ever be necessary.
It is also a thorough account of the tremendously hard road of adoption - a road that reaches extreme peaks and troughs and sharp bends and finally, super-abundant joy. The book also enlightens you about some facts on adoption that no one will ever disclose voluntarily. Although South-African specific it is written in such a way that it can be read and implemented worldwide by anyone trying to conceive or that is interested in adoption.
This is truly a global book. So whether you are looking for the facts or just a good read, you’ve found the right book. A ‘must have’, thoroughly enjoyable and extremely informative book!
