After unsuccessful IVF treatment, Fiona went on to adopt three sibling girls.
Fiona and her husband waited two years after they got married before consulting the GP about their fertility. Tests showed that they had a male fertility problem and would need to have IVF treatment. They had to wait a long time before their treatment appointment came through at their local NHS hospital. Their first cycle of IVF treatment was abandoned. They then went through two full IVF cycles, neither of which worked. At this point, Fiona and her husband decided to stop treatment. They took a year off, and then started looking into adoption. They were soon approved and successfully adopted three sisters who had been living with them for six years at the time of the interview.
