Intro! (Child Mentioned.)

Hello everyone!

My name is Iona, I'm 36 and my partner is 35.

I got ovarian cancer aged 18, and only have one ovary left, but the eggs that remain were affected by the chemotherapy, and are expected to be incapable of being fertilised (we are still awaiting test results). If they are, we are looking at using my sister's eggs, though she and her partner are also looking at trying to conceive soon. 

I also have sole, full guardianship of my little nephew, Tove, and have had since he was 3 months old, though I share custody with my ex-stepmother.

So, here I am. I look forward to getting to know you all!
