Sometimes when Amira Mikhail is caught up in the chaos of everyday life, getting her two young sons ready and out the door, she has to pause and remind herself what it took to be where she is today.
For while Mikhail always longed to have a family, her body was never on-board with the plan.
Becoming a mother has involved years of medical procedures, setbacks and heartache and, through it all, she held on to her dream, fiercely determined to see it realised.
“Honestly I didn’t have a plan B,” admits the Christchurch vet. “I just could not imagine not having kids. There was nowhere in my mind where I grew old and had no children.”
