Gina had always assumed she would have children. She never went through a stage of life thinking that her career would be too important to interrupt with motherhood, and she never screwed up her nose at the idea of having a baby. An ovarian tumour and post-surgical menopause put an end to those dreams, until she heard about the possibility of having a child by egg donation. This is the story of one woman's journey through the life- and soul-changing events that made her a mother of two little boys. This story is set in the United Kingdom. Some medical practices and guidances may differ by country. However, the dreams of motherhood may unite us all.
