A perfect imperfect life …
Do you have a “plan” for how your life is expected to go and then it simply does not happen that way? I did.
For me, I was taught at an early age that you go to school, get a career, get married, have kids, move to the suburbs and then work hard at the same job until it’s time to retire at the good age of 65. Sound familiar? I never questioned this until my “plan” suddenly stopped, after 6 years of trying to become pregnant, when a doctor told me I had less than a 1% chance of having my own child and that I should give up the idea now… Little did I know, it was one of the best things that could have happened to me.

My Fertility Story
Here’s to less than 1% …
My story starts with my 6 + year struggle of getting pregnant. There was a point where a doctor told me I had less than a 1% chance of having my own baby and that I should start looking into adoption or an egg donor.
Fast forward, I now have my daughter, T and a day never goes by where I don’t feel so grateful and lucky to have her in my life. I hid my story for a long time from family, friends, even from myself in some ways, but now I am telling my story in hopes that it helps others so they know they are not alone.
As I go through this all again to try for my second little miracle, I have decided to document the process through journal entries and FB live feeds. Follow me on FB Live for live feeds and follow me here for continued resources & support.
