The Road to Creating the Modern Day Family
Josephine is currently working on her memoir which follows her and her husband’s journey to creating the modern day family via adoption, IVF (fertility treatments), and surrogacy. Her five children came into their family in very different ways but are bound together by the strength of love. Josephine feels a duty to share her three different journeys to help the multitude of people facing the difficulties of infertility. Josephine aims to shine a light on the options available to people during this very dark and lonely time and in the end provide some hope to those striving to create their own families.
