In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, sewing, knitting, baking and cooking with the Thermomix.
Sarah and Sam welcomed their second IVF miracle Zac, little baby brother to Zoe, in November 2016.
From the Author
Two years after we tied the knot, we began trying to start a family in 2008. It was not until two years later that we were told we couldn't do so on our own. When we first started fertility treatments in 2011, there were limited resources and I found comfort in writing to my imaginary child through emails. Fast forward many years later, these letters became words of comfort, strength and encouragement.
This book is dedicated to those who have helped us through the journey. Whether it be a silent prayer, a simple gesture, a friendly greeting to the miraculous work by fertility specialists, nurses, doctors and scientists - our heartfelt thank you. I hope that this book will continue to raise awareness towards infertility and to encourage others who are mapping their own journey.
