About this deal

But, in the months and years that followed, she discovered that there was more than one way to build a family - and that there is a lot of joy to be found in life's unexpected detours.

Over two years, my then-partner Chris and I went from trying to get pregnant naturally to having our fertility tested (everything looked normal) and going through IVF three times. I cried through a lot of this book, not for sadness of what was not to be but of the grief I felt at the time and wasn’t able to express.

Thank you Lisa for being so honest with your experience, this book really helped me and I related to everything she went through with ivf. Lisa takes you on an emotional journey of the challenges she and other couples have faced to become a parent. This book is good for anyone who has been through this, or, equally, for those who haven’t, to gain an understanding of this difficult journey. That first day we took her to the park and played on the swings, we fed the ducks and then came home and played with her toys. The social workers (ours and Billie’s) met with us to go through what had been happening and to raise any pressing points or questions they needed to ask.

Life can be unexpected; my plan was to be in a happy marriage with a biological child, and look how that turned out. A very warm and frank telling of the many years Lisa and her now ex husband and their infertility story.All the experiences are so well written and I’ve found this to be a very therapeutic and uplifting book as I too parent plus.

It covers some really powerful topics such as miscarriage and the struggles of those who are trying to have a family.

Ive had this book on my tbr list for a while, as I knew I needed to be in the right place mentally to be able to read it and to have the time to reflect. Just a few days later I was at work, suffering the worst cramps and pains, and then collapsed on the floor.

It was after I put in those days and months of being there to listen, hold and comfort that it felt real.Hearst UK is the trading name of the National Magazine Company Ltd, 30 Panton Street, Leicester Square, London, SW1Y 4AJ.
