Sorry that this update is so overdue! I literally can't believe it's been so long since my last blog post, but the past months Dermot and I have been focused on bringing Gigi home and time just passed without me writing anything.
It had always been our dream to become parents but before DNRS I had become too ill for us to even think it could be a possibility in future. I was too ill to look after myself, let alone another human being.
But DNRS gave me health and hope back and made us dream again. And now just over 2 years after starting DNRS and 9 months after seeing his photo for the first time our son Gigi is home with us and we're on top of the world.
The past couple of months have been a whirlwind filled with laughter, hugs and some tears mixed in with lots of fun and mischief.
We'll always be grateful to DNRS for giving me my health and our hope and dreams back, to everyone involved in making this possible and of course to India for trusting us with their child.
And for those of you considering DNRS or getting started and struggling with the ebb and flow of your recovery journey, know that it's not easy but it will work for you as well. So stay strong and dream big. I was so close to giving up so many times and now all my dreams...including the biggest one of my life...have been fulfilled.
