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

ICLW welcome!

This week is ICLW. Not sure what that is? You can read about it here: ICLW. For those visiting from ICLW, welcome to my little, tiny corner of the world. Let me tell you a bit about me and my blog.

*My name is Jess and I am 35 years old. I have been married for 14 years and began ttc right away.

*We have a plethora of fertility issues. I have endo, mild PCOS and a blocked tube. Hubby has azoospermia, possibly from Sertoli-cell only. So basically nothing works! :)

*We have had 2 failed adoptions, four unsuccessful rounds of IUI with donor sperm and finally had a baby girl through embryo donation. She is 2 years old and we are trying for baby number two.....and maybe three.

I look forward to meeting new peeps this week! And maybe a few new blogs to follow. Hope to see you around!


  1. Hi Jess, just had to tell you that I really enjoy reading your blog and find your story inspirational. I'm saying a prayer that your transfer goes well and Madison becomes a big sister soon. She is such an adorable little girl. It sounds like she's a firecracker like my son! I will be waiting for updates so I'm glad you post often.

  2. Hello! I have been blog stalking you for a while. I am in the process of embryo adoption and should be having our FET in May!

  3. Hi Jess, I have read much of your blog! We are in the process of using miracles waiting for embryo donation. This is all very new to us, so thank you for your blog, which is very informative. We have had 7 failed IUIs, 3 failed fresh IVFs and 1 failed FET. And very recently have had 2 miscarriages from FETs (all with my eggs). Definitely time to move on to donor eggs/embryos. Wishing you the best of luck with your upcoming transfer!!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
