I am a mom! FINALLY!
It is so weird to be able to pronounce those words after so many years of being unsuccessful in my quest for that title. It was not how I imagined it happening, but I am overjoyed by the final result! The Banques Mixtes du Quebec program blessed us with a tiny ball of energy that takes up our day to day AND now his baby brother has joined the ranks! Let's hope that he is a little less rambunctious! He is keeping me busy at home on my second parental leave.
I have to say that I am proud to be a voice in the community when it comes to fertility.
After a year of quietly trying to become a Single Mom by Choice and feeling so alone, I broke my silence and publicly spoke about my own fertility issues. The response was incredible and each step was followed by a blog post.
