For Danielle Nixon, the journey to parenthood with husband Leon was a long and bumpy road. With the help of some very special friends however, it was ultimately an amazing experience for the Bendigo couple. As told to Linley Wilkie.

"We went through many years trying to have our own family. This included many, many rounds of IVF (egg collections, transfers, testing, injections, scans, blood tests, specialist appointments etc.), it just became our life.
