: Hi!
: My Clomid son will be twelve at the end of this month.
: My Pergonal daughter will be eight in August, and my Pergonal "leftovers" girl will be seven.
: I still have PCOS. I've had it for 20 yrs. I could never share my feelings with anyone.
: I came across this web site accidentaly, and for the past two weeks I've entered the sit and read and read, and cried, and felt so close to all of you. Geographicaly I'm pretty far, I live in Israel, and many of the financial problems you are dealing with so bravely I did'nt have.
: All the rest is so familiar.
: I thought I was just going to read the messages on this board, and feel much less alone. I didn't think to comment since Iremember how frustrated I was with anyone who had children...but then there was this message who asked for happy thoughts. And I have three...
: So this is my thought for you: believe and don't give up. You deserve to have what your heart desires.
: There's a story about how unfair nature is: Lady Fox met Lady Lion and started teasing her by saying: "How many cubs do you have in a litter? I have five or six.."
: "Well", said Lady Lion, "I have only one, but that one is a PRINCE!"
: I pray for the day when all of you hold your princes and princesses in your arms.
: all my love.

Beautiful post. It is nice to read some happy stories. I also finally have my beautiful baby after a long struggle. I always wanted to believe it could happen, but sometimes never thought it would. Not a day goes by that I take my son for granted and don't realize what an incredible gift I have.
I still read these boards, as my experience is still very fresh with me and always will be. I will never forget the pain I experienced and now that I have my baby, I don't for one second regret having gone through any of it. It is what got me my baby and he is the one who came through it all.
I always knew I would get my baby somehow, whether through IVF, donor gametes, adoption or whatever it was going to take. People often say to me, "you're so lucky". I'm not lucky, I worked so hard for my baby, as everyone on this board is. Just don't give up. Always have a new plan of action in your treatment. You will get your baby, and once you hold him or her in your arms, no matter how you got that baby, it will be your child and this time will all be worth it.
