Book review and competition: The Gift of Life.

The Gift of Life, by Keily J. Adey (Author).

The Gift of Life is a very open, honest and detailed account of events that the author takes you on with her experience with miscarriages, IVF and infertility. It is in essence, Keily's (the author) diary written over a very tough period in her life, however it does finish with a happy ending. Many people would class conceiving a child a happy and hassle-free part of life, and it can sometimes be taken granted for, but this book highlights how that is not the case for everyone. 
At the beginning of the book it has a terminology guide for the abbreviations and meanings that are used throughout  - which I had to refer back to quite a few times, so it was very useful to have and I appreciated it was there.

In addition Keily has added a synopsis for the stages of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), which helps you better understand the process - especially for people like me that have never heard of it before.

Then there is an illustrative introduction into how they came to the realisation that conceiving a baby was going to be a very challenging time for them. The book then leads you on to her story, the long and tough journey which they went through to finally have a baby and then a second baby. This book takes you through an emotional roller-coaster, which will at the end inspire you. I finished the book feeling I had learnt something, and I went away with a new appreciation for life and my children.  

I feel Keily is truly brave for putting this very personal story out there and sharing this with us, if not to educate on the subject through her personal experience but to also give others hope. 

This book is a must read, and I am hosting a competition for one lucky person to win a copy of The Gift of Life - please see below to enter, however if you cannot wait and want to order one now, you will find it on Amazon for £7.99
