69 Million Chances is a story about a couple’s plight to start a family. They had gotten married and she had thrown the pill away the very next day, and if she was being honest with herself, she was nervous about falling pregnant straight away. She needn’t have worried, after three years of trying, she still wasn’t pregnant and the prospects didn’t look good. In and out of the bedroom they had exhausted all options and all that was left was IVF. And this was the one path they didn’t want to be lead to. As IVF isn’t known for its simplicity, and you are taken through their emotional journey in depth with an insight into how the process, procedures and drugs affects their once happy little home. They find the only thing they have left to rely on is hope to get them from one stage to the next and constantly question if it (hope) actually exists: this alongside with God. The Catholic Church doesn’t believe in IVF and this makes them question their faith. Faced with the unsuccessful attempt of their last frozen embryos, their last hope, they had to decide whether to try the whole IVF process again? She consulted a clairvoyant for some clear direction. The clairvoyant couldn’t answer her but did say she sees her with two children on a beach. Is that enough hope to keep trying?

The story draws you in from word one and will push you into emotions without any warning but the authors sense of humour and charm always seems to leave you with a smile even when the the times are her bleakest a real and honest account of the IVF process loved it loved it loved it.
