An IVF Journey: Day 6 – An update

Baby ArianArian Kit Owen was born in May 2014 at Colchester General Hospital.

Si and I absolutely love being Arian’s parents. He is a fantastic little boy with loads of character and a very adventurous nature. We think he’ll probably be an explorer when he’s older as he loves climbing!

We think he’s the most gorgeous boy in the world – but, of course, we may be a little biased…!
