Who is “The Absolute Barrenness”?

Infertility is a funny thing. You always think it will happen to somebody else, but never to you.

My story begins in 2007 years ago at 34 years young :-) , when I met the wonderful man who was to become my husband. 5 years later, our nest remains empty and not through any lack of trying. At the time we never imagined that within 5 years, I/we would have:
- given up my 20 year career in IT, as a successful Sales & Marketing Director for an international IT company
- dealt with horrendous mistakes made by doctors
- learnt that medicine is not as advanced as we all like to think and doctors make mistakes
- lost our precious healthy baby daughter just short of 5 months into the pregnancy
- lost my uterus
- needed the help of a surrogate mother
- opened up our lives to strangers who ultimately hold our dreams in their hands
- ventured down the route of adoption and never looked back

This is our story. Our story of despair, angst, hope and blessings. Our story of adoption. Our hope that it will help and guide those who find themselves in a similar situation. Our hope that it will provide courage and inspiration to anyone facing emotional hard times and difficult decisions.

Just know that you’re not alone …

  1. I wanted to say something to you but I am struggling to find the words and I am a journalist! It is as if i was reading my exact thoughts and emotions right there in front of me… the exact same thoughts and emotions that I never felt able to express for fear I wouldn’t be able to go on. I do now have a baby and i still find it hard to believe she is real and every day i wonder how i could possibly be so lucky. i dearly hope things work out for you. I think you are so incredibly strong and will make a wonderful, wonderful mother. I know you will get there in the end, in one way or another.

    • Thank you Courtney for your kind words and congratulations on your baby!! Whether we will ever have a baby – a two legged family of our own – remains an answered question. At this stage however I’m not prepared to give up and am exploring all avenues available to us. I guess as time heals all wounds, time will also unravel what life has in store for us. In the meantime we can only do our best with the resources available to us and continue to persevere. Big hugs to you and your precious baby girl :-) .
