Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

Who am I?

For those that are visiting from ICLW let me catch you up to speed and tell you a little about me and my journey.

*Married for 12 years. TTC all of those years.

*What can go wrong will go wrong: I have endo, mild PCOS, blocked tube and a damaged ovary on the "good" side. Hubby has no swimmers at all. Nothing. Nada! A really bad combination for baby making.

*We tried to adopt. Twice. Both epic fails.

*We tried 4 IUIs with donor sperm. Again, everything went wrong. The frozen swimmers did not thaw well and the count was low. I developed a uterine infection. Had to get a new donor. No BFP from any of these attempts.

*At the 11 year ttc mark we embarked on a new leg of our journey: EA. We actually did anonymous embryo donation through a local clinic.

*Our miracle baby is a baby no more. She turns a year old on Thursday.

*We are currently pursuing baby number two. However, our clinic closed and we are starting from scratch.

Well, there you have it. My life in bullet points. Feel free to stick around and follow the continue ttc saga.


  1. Happy ICLW! I hope you get some good news in your journey to #2 really soon!

  2. Happy ICLW!!

    I hope you are able to find a new clinic and your LO has a brother or sister very soon!!!


  3. Love your "greater yes" story. I'm looking forward to what else is in store for you and your family. (Visiting from ICLW)
