When we planned our trip to Spain for egg donor IVF, it did not occur to us that the last days coincide with Chanukah.
Chanukah the Festival of Lights is a celebration of miracles. It is fitting that our embryo transfer falls on the eve of a holiday that celebrates triumph, overcoming insurmountable odds, and resilance.
For the past six years, our quest to conceive a child has been full of dark days. Sadly, our journey has not brought the light of a new life into our family.
We have been knocked down, but continue to persevere. We have not let defeat and disappointment break our spirits or will. Instead, we remain hopeful for our miracle child.
The themes of Chanukah are applicable to all; no matter what challenge you face, be your own bright light.
I want to wish all my friends and family a year of blessings and miracles.
