    It is so important that those who have gone thougrh to share their stories. We went thougrh 3 failed IVF cycles, had 2 losses (chemical pregnancies) and insurance only covers 3 attempts. We decided to start the adoption process and had a failure (birth Mom changed her mind after the baby was in our home for a few days) and then our success. We are so happy we adopted and expanded our family. It is wonderful to hear what other people have gone thougrh as it is very encouraging for those going thougrh similar situations. I can not tell you the countless insensitive and selfish remarks you might hear while going thougrh these fertility issues. Only couples or individuals who have gone thougrh it can truly understand the struggle. It is so rewarding to be a parent, but not everyone has an easy time conceiving. Thank you Elisabeth for sharing your story!
