I would get used to these meetings and they would become almost second nature over the coming months, but for now, it was all so new to me and I was terrified to put a foot wrong. Angela had given me a brand-new changing bag that she had been given (and hadn’t used) and I was scared that they would think that I hadn’t listened to anything they had said about being very low-key and keeping everything the same. If anyone reading this is struggling to have children please pick up this book it will give you courage and their is help available out their. We recently went to see the film Instant Family, which is about adoption, with a friend who has two adopted children, too.

Exactly the same as Lisa; I did not share everything I went through during my IVF journey, which is now a blur, as I could not cope with the scrutiny or expectation of IVF, so my husband and I kept the burden to ourselves.It was emotional and complicated and delicate for every single person involved and we were all just trying to do our best for this wonderful little girl. As someone finding unable to have children now through sudden medical reasons before being able to try, I found it comforting/interesting to hear her views.

Every time it failed, I felt my body had betrayed me, that I hadn’t looked after that precious embryo well enough. Lisa takes you on an emotional journey of the challenges she and other couples have faced to become a parent.

The social workers (ours and Billie’s) met with us to go through what had been happening and to raise any pressing points or questions they needed to ask.

In a raw and inspiring story of one woman’s journey through motherhood, family life and self-discovery, Lisa explores the many forms that family can take, and discovers the power of embracing your Plan B. She had seemed to settle so easily and didn’t seem at all disturbed by the fact that she was coming to stay with us, though I knew from the work we had done that it would all be in her head somewhere. She really needed us, and she needed us to step up to the mark and be the grown-ups and not let her down. Ive had this book on my tbr list for a while, as I knew I needed to be in the right place mentally to be able to read it and to have the time to reflect. A great reminder that our paths may be different to those intended, but we can still get to the destination.It was just a bag, but I had really wanted to use it; filling it with nappies, wipes, a change of clothes, snacks and a book had brought me so much joy. As someone who has gone through 5 rounds of IVF and had two miscarriages, this book resonated deeply with me. Luckily I got a miracle child with ivf but a friend has recently adopted and this has really helped me understand what she has been through too. I cried through a lot of this book, not for sadness of what was not to be but of the grief I felt at the time and wasn’t able to express. This was really just a meeting to see how we were all doing now that the care plan had been carried out and Billie was starting to settle in with us.
