‘When will we hear the patter of tiny feet? ‘You don’t want to be OLD parents, do you?’: Family adopts 2 children after struggling for years with infertility

“The phone call that changed our life. It was 8 p.m. on a Wednesday when the phone rang. It was our social worker. ‘How would you like to come and meet a baby boy?

‘I am miscarrying, alone. I have a 10-month-old in the house. The front door is unlocked. Please send help.’: Woman diagnosed with PCOS, secondary infertility after experiencing second trimester loss

Please hurry.’ I don’t remember speaking to her after that. Paramedics arrived, and I was transported to the hospital. I wanted to see no one. Not even the pastor my parents sent to see me in the hospital. No one. I was bitter, confused and enraged.”
