Hi, I'm new

:) Hello, this is my first time on this site and wondered if I could join you?

My name is Sally and 2 years ago this week, I had my last embryo transfer which resulted in our 2nd failed ICSI cycle.
After the devastation and despair, we've found life after IVF thankfully.

We applied to adopt last April and after 10 months of constant busy-ness, we were approved in Feb of this year. Exactly one month later, we found out about our little girl, and she came home in May.

I never thought in a million years I'd be saying "my daughter"!!
It's the most amazing feeling in the world. And although she's only been with us 6 months, she has long been the boss of the house, and we rarely remember she's not ours biologically, because she's so much like the both of us. We're constantly being told how much she looks like me - someone recently described her as a mini-mummy!

It's such a nice feeling to be classed as "normal" after so long being "you poor thing, how brave you're being" etc etc. To me there was nothing brave about going through the year of treatment I had, I feel if you want something badly enough, you'll do anything to achieve it.

I have no regrets, and would gladly go through the whole thing again if it meant getting my baby girl at the end of it.

Dreams really can come true, keep believing! :D
Me 29, DH 31, ttc since 2000.
1 abd IVF, 2 failed ICSI's
Turned to adoption to make our dreams come true.
Now proud parents of a beautiful 2 yr girl and are so very lucky!
