My phone rang yesterday. My friend Abba was on the line screaming. Her husband had bought her a new car. It was Mother’s Day, she deserved it. Abba had tried to get pregnant for 7 years. After 6 failed IVF’s , 1 ectopic pregnancy, and 3 miscarriages, she had given birth to a beautiful bouncing baby girl. She was happy and why the hell shouldn’t she be. It had been many years of pain. 
After the baby came she’ll call me 5 times a day to tell me how magical her days had become. She posted many pictures of her ‘miracle’ on Facebook and shared with the world the many rewards of motherhood.
