Dear You: A Letter to My Unborn Children Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Tess Broad wanted children. She longed for them. It wasn't to be. In this candid and moving memoir, Tess writes to the children that never were.

She writes to them as their adult selves with openness and honesty and tells them of the childhood she envisaged for them and the mother she believed she would be. She describes her reluctant transformation from the woebegone, wannabe mummy that she once was, to the woman she is now; childless but chilled, sailing through Mother's Day with a smile on her face.

Happy. From the 'trying for a family' stage to the relentless treadmill of infertility treatment, Tess recounts her story with humour and pathos, taking the reader on her journey with her, sharing her experiences, the roller-coaster ride of IVF, the sudden departure of the husband whose children she wanted to have and ultimately to acceptance that the life she wanted and expected was not hers for the taking.

This is a breathtaking memoir that offers a shoulder to lean on for everyone experiencing the uncertainties and pain of infertility.
