Who Is Pepi?
I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 36, with a 9 year old daughter and a 6 year old son.
Part of my treatment required me to have my ovaries removed and all of a sudden, our lives were faced with some huge changes. We thought about adopting a third baby to our family
We could picture our Pepi, a boy or girl and soon realised that we would be unable to adopt due to my health status. The range of emotions to this stark fact were enormous.
What 'Pepi' did for us was open up the opportunity of adoption and open up a new discussion of and what family means.
Life circumstances can take those opportunities away.
