We always thought we would have kids. We started trying when we believed we were ready. A month went by, then two months, six months, a year. Nothing happened.

Something was wrong, but nobody could tell us what - and they still can't to this day. We tried IVF three times but our results were not good. We were devastated.

Eighteen months after our last IVF cycle, we knew we would not be having our own children. And, somehow, we have moved to a life that is much different to the one we thought we'd have.

This blog is about what we do now we know we won't be having children - the thoughts, dreams, realities, sorrows, and joys that have become our new life path.

I hope you will enjoy what I will be sharing, and I hope that if you are at the point where life without children is a reality for you, that you might find some hope and inspiration here.

My nephew says the darnedest things...

Hugo and his Frosty (Cars 2) mug
Kirby and I were both out (separately doing life's mundane chores) when Kirby's Mum and Dad sent a text to say that they were almost at our house. Kirby got home just as they, along with Hugo, arrived. Later, 

Hugo asked me where "Uncle Kirby" had been. I said he had been at the shops and got a haircut. Hugo's response was "Oh, so he was out and about then."

Next, Hugo was patting Minerva (she's my 15 year old cat) and she was moving away from him. I said to Hugo that perhaps he'd better leave her be. He wanted to know why - so I told him she was old and sometimes she didn't want to be petted. Hugo's response was "So she's having a day off today?" 

My three year old nephew is a treasure!
