MISCONCEPTION

Being in my 50's and childless (by choice; and never married either) I admit I never fully sympathised or understood what it would be like not to be able to conceive, period (excuse the pun!). I have followed JayJay's journey (via NZ mags/tv/interviews etc) over the years with interest as she seemed such a spirited, fun and successful gal and I thought that would be ENOUGH for her. Then her book was passed onto me and after reading, I now comprehend the emptiness and sad state a woman can feel when her physical, hormonal and motherly desire for a child just can't be attained. JayJay and her husband have been SO brave to be able to survive such trauma - and be able to move on AND keep their relationship going I might add! I'm glad JayJay and Dom can enjoy being "2nd-parents" at least. (And maybe I'm just meant to enjoy being an aunt?) But remember: MIRACLES DO HAPPEN so who knows what's around the corner?! A really neat book to read. (from Jill of Linden)
