Thank you for your lovely words, but we've always felt that we're the ones who are lucky. We often say (despite not being religious) that divine intervention had to play a part, it was certainly a match made in heaven!

That is such a lovely thing to say. I didn't realise I made that much of a difference here.

Why do I stay positive? Just take a look at my signature!! Through TTC I have been blessed with some amazing friendships with some incredibly inspiring women. The last 9 years has been enriched by infertility in a way I would have never dreamed of. I have been able to experience some amazing things through not having children, and I have to focus on those things.

Sure, infertility has broken our heart more times than I can count, and it's changed me in negative ways, that I annoy me every day, but why focus on those things? I can't control infertility, but I can choose to not let it control me.

So, there you go. Thank you for such a lovely question, it made me cry, but with tears of happiness.

BTW, tomorrow Neil and I will have been married 10 years, and on Saturday we're renewing our wedding vows in our garden. I have 10 happy years to celebrate with a man that truly is my soul mate. I feel like I'm the luckiest lady in the world.

(I fostered 2 girls while pregnant with Josh and I grew up with foster children-- my mom did it for years).
That's so lovely Jeanne, I never knew you had experience of foster children. So lovely to hear that. Tell me what it was like growing up with foster children!
