Helen Dalglish, 54, is from Glasgow, and shared her happiness with online users about a very important milestone in her life. Always eager to become a mother, Helen started a journey that she never expected would last 25 years. That's right, a quarter of a century!
Helen moved to Cyprus when she was very young and it was here that she started her first attempts to get pregnant. After being declared healthy by doctors, Helen started first with intrauterine insemination procedures and later with IVF.
Helen tried 21 treatments and spent over $100,000 doing so. "It was financially, emotionally and physically draining. Every time the fertilization procedure failed, I felt depressed. But then, I told myself that I shouldn't give up and that if I wanted a child I had to hang in there," Helen recounted.
25 years passed, and then, suddenly, the wonderful news arrived: Helen would become a mother. For Helen, being able to hold little Daisy Grace for the first time was an overwhelming experience.
"When we got home after Daisy's birth, I burst into tears. It's been 25 very tough years and I had almost given up hope. But here she is! She is the most placid, relaxed and happy child that I could wish for. She's a small miracle," Helen said.
We wish this wonderful family all the luck in the world for the future. Have a happy, full life!
