Sharon van Wyk got married at 30. Coming back from her honeymoon she fell sick and discovered she was pregnant. Unfortunately she had a miscarriage at 8 weeks.
Van Wyk tried for 7 years to have a baby but failed. She had 6 confirmed miscarriages, multiple surgeries, five artificial inseminations and numerous visits to fertility clinics.
Eventually she faced up to the reality of infertility and finally took a decision to adopt.
In 2008 she started a blog about infertility and fertility. Her blog is called Blessed Barrenness.
