I am a 40-something European woman doing what I once thought wasn't possible: finding happiness after infertility. While it's been a long, difficult and emotional journey (10 unsuccessful IVF treatments), each day I take another step down the path toward a fulfilling new life. This is my story of reinvention.

The world is not a wish-granting factory
It is a beautiful Sunday morning, it is snowing outside (during the night we got 50 cm of new snow). I just finished reading The fault in our stars. A beautiful book! I really recommend it.
I loved this sentence in the book:
"The world is not a wish-granting factory."
I will not tell you anything about the book.... since it is so wonderful that you should read it.
There was one information in the book: how many people have died so far? I realized that I never thought about it. Approx. 100 billion! 7 billion are alive now which means that 107 billion were born so far. An article about it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-16870579
And for me even giving life for one single child was mission impossible. As it is written in the book: The world is not a wish-granting factory.
I am not sad. It is, what it is. I will never have a life that I planned. But this does not mean that my life will not be beautiful.
(There are things that are much worse then my infertility. Having a child with terminal cancer would break my heart forever.)
