Welcome to "I
Want A Baby!" I created this site back in 1999 because my then-husband
and I were going through our own 14-month struggle to conceive. I was
so desperate to have a child and so filled with negativity, having tried
for so long to get pregnant that I decided to do something positive.
So I searched the net for the best sites I could find to help inspire
and inform not only myself, but others who were enduring the same fight.
My marriage didn't
survive, but my desire for a child did. Just when I thought everything
was hopeless, I met my soulmate, Rory, and fell deeply in love. Rory
and I did not set out to conceive. But low and behold, I found myself
pregnant in November 2001. It was the biggest, most wonderful shock
of my life. My odds of conceiving had been reduced to just 50 percent
a year earlier by a fertility specialist who discovered that a benign
tumor had consumed my left ovary and it could no longer release an egg
to be fertilized. That left all my odds of conceiving a child dependent
on my one good ovary - which only functioned every once and awhile,
So the baby you
see to the right is my little miracle, Aurora Jade, born by c-section
on June 27, 2002. No matter why you're here, whether you're trying to
conceive, you're already expecting, or you're a new parent, I hope this
site will help you and YOUR little miracle. Keep the faith!
