We’ve made the decision to cease our pursuit of another pregnancy

I like sharing the emails I get from clients that I believe are important for other women to read. I am so impressed by the way this woman views life. She is full of faith and it shows in how she surrenders and accepts her reproductive outcomes.
Thank you so much Dr. Pentland... I’ve been meaning to send you a note, but the last few weeks have really been a bit of a blur. I suspect you’ve already guessed that our last attempt at IUI was unsuccessful. It was difficult news to receive, but as we knew our chances of becoming pregnant were slim, we were realistic with our expectations, and this was not an unexpected outcome.
We’ve made the decision to cease our pursuit of another pregnancy, and instead, focus on nurturing the family that we are already so blessed to have... Should an opportunity arise to have another child by way of adoption, we will certainly be open to that concept, but for now, we are simply going to enjoy being a little threesome. We realise how very lucky we are to have our precious little girl, and we will continue to be thankful for the joy she brings to our lives.
I’d like to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am that you have been one of my caregivers over the past several months. It’s very rare to find a medical practitioner who has the unique combination of practical knowledge, sensitivity, compassion, humour, and intuitiveness that is essential in dealing with women struggling with fertility disorders. You have all of those gifts... and more. You have been available, approachable and insightful, and I sincerely appreciate all the support that you offered to me during my treatments with PCRM.
Although my outcome was not the one we hoped for, I would certainly recommend that any woman facing fertility treatments consult with you first, as I wholeheartedly believe that when I became pregnant in February, it was a direct result of the treatments that I had received from you. Although that pregnancy ended far too soon, those 8 weeks were some of the happiest in my life, and I wouldn’t trade that time for anything.
I wish you continued success in your practice Dr. Pentland, and know that you are destined for this vocation. You are truly gifted. I hope to meet with you again one day.
