We were told to relax and “let it happen". So much advice comes your way when trying to start a family. No matter what we did, nothing ever happened.
After several years of trying we decided that help was necessary and a small problem had an “easy” solution...IVF!
Declan was born in 2013 and the hormone injections, surgical interventions, tears, arguments and 14 hours of labor were all forgotten when he came into the world.
Every day, we tell Declan how special he is and that is so so so loved! That's all he needs to know ❤️
Although it is still heart-wrenching to fully share in the joy of those around us who are on their second or third child - or who can simply sneeze and become pregnant - Declan is a constant and kind reminder of how kind the world can be.

How did your boston ivf physician and nursing team help to make your journey a success?
They were with us every step of the way!!!!
From my frantic phone calls asking where my fertility drug shipment was or wiping a tear or several thousand away - Dr. Wright and her team shared in our joys and sorrows.
After I had Declan I realized that unlike “normal” people, we never did an at-home pregnancy test. I left a message with the office asking if they knew the "day" that we found out - so that we could place it in his baby book. I could hear the happy tears on the other end of the phone; giving me a simple set of numbers to add to a little book!
Did anyone/anything else help you through your infertility journey?
I tried to stay off of the internet and surround myself with people who had "been there".
What were some highs or lows of your treatment(s)? What is unique/different about your story?
The hormone injections with a large needle, the feeling of being "abnormal" - the sense of loneliness that surrounds timed injections, timed sex, and appointments.
The high would be the phone call from the clinic; congratulating us on the best journey of our lives to date.
What advice do you have for other struggling with infertility?
Have hope, faith, and tears.
You may be judged on your journey by some but remember that everyone has a special journey.
Share your struggles. NEVER be afraid of that.
