The twentieth child...a Short story with a happy ending.

Last week I wrote about women who wanted to choose the sex of their babies. Today comes the story of a very brave couple who simply wanted a baby.   Despite nineteen miscarriages they never gave up.

Their story is a long one, endless IVF, heartache and disappointment   'one minute it was elation - the next desolation ' and finally pioneering surgery  from Canada that fulfilled their dream in the shape of six-month-old


'Our life had a baby-shaped hole in it - and now it doesn't,' says Steve.


Everyone likes a story with a happy ending

Congratulations Joanne and Steve Short - you surely deserve it.

This makes me feel incredibly humble and so very privileged to have had my children with ease.

Happy they finally got their baby. My friends tried for 11 years, then adopted a beautiful baby boy. THEN they got pregnant and now their son has a beautiful sister.

Francie - that's such a lovely story - I'd love to see a photo of the happy family. xxx
