A beautiful sunflower & changing the number in the text :)


Has anyone read my bio lately?

I am a 50-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. I will be happy to hear from you: klara.soncek (@ )

I've just changed the number in the text :) 


Turning 40 was stressful. I had been struggling with infertility for the whole decade and I knew that if I didn't have a child by 40, it would never happen. So turning 40 and accepting a life without children forever was heartbreakingly hard.

Turning 50? Easy. I have learnt to enjoy the little things. No matter how small. Like admiring every day this beautiful sunflower I planted.


  1. Happy belated birthday! There is such a difference between wanting to have kids, realizing you're not going to have kids, and then having years of knowledge that you won't be having kids. It gets easier. I am happy for you.

  2. Belated Happy Birthday! I'm so glad turning 50 was easy. I agree that 40 is hard. 50 is a decade of freedoms, I think. May you enjoy many many many of them!!!
