said Victoria. "My heart goes out to the many women who have endured the same struggles as me to conceive a child. I feel blessed to have had a child and now we have a head start on his education, thanks to this wonderful program from Ferring."

Victoria Knapp's Story

Victoria's story chronicles the defining moments of her life, starting with her adoption at birth that led to an understanding at an early age that families are created in different ways. The tragic death of her brother at age 15 was another such defining moment. A successful career meant that Victoria married later in life and delayed starting a family. After multiple pregnancy losses, Victoria's dream of ever carrying a child was shattered when her doctor told her that fibroid tumors in her uterus were standing in the way of maintaining a pregnancy. Her doctor also said that she should consider a hysterectomy and a surrogate, but Victoria was unwavering in her commitment to have children. After two years of considering her options and many surgeries to remove the fibroids, Victoria consulted with Bradford Kolb, M.D. at Huntington Reproductive Center (HRC) in Pasadena, CA. With the help of Dr. Kolb, Victoria decided to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment and was prescribed BRAVELLE and MENOPUR and responded beautifully to the medication. Two blastocysts were transferred into Victoria's uterus and on March 6, 2007, after a challenging pregnancy, Victoria and Christopher welcomed their son Hendrick Thomas into their family. In her essay, Victoria speaks of the infinite joy that the birth of Hendrick has brought her:

"On March 6, 2007, at 38 weeks and after five grueling months of bed rest,

Hendrick Thomas (Thomas after my brother) was born weighing 8 lbs. 9 oz.

and measuring 22 inches. It was defining moment number five - the

greatest, most humbling, deeply fulfilling, and worth-the-wait moment of

all."

"I am so happy to have contributed to Vic
