What is Clara's story?
Thanks to Science, Clara's parents’ lifelong dream of having a child came true. Clara is a proud IVF-ICSI baby and reminds her parents every day how worthy she is of all their sacrifices made throughout their pre-parenthood journey.
"My husband and I have been together for about 7 years. Throughout our relationship, we’ve always talked about having kids. However, just when we thought the timing was right, the pandemic hit. I am a frontline nurse, and my husband was laid off from his job at the early days of the pandemic, so having a baby during that time, as we thought, would be extremely challenging. However, as we navigated through the pandemic, we thought, we need to also prioritize ourselves and make our dream of having a baby happen. So, we tried – we kept on trying until we realized that something was wrong. We consulted a specialist and found out that we were suffering from infertility. Our doctor recommended IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization). The whole process, despite very expensive and stressful, was a success! We were ecstatic! She’s our miracle baby. Her birth into this world is one of our greatest achievements and our best blessing! We love Clara so much and we treasure every moment with her." - Carlen (Clara's mom)
