Mother's Day Gives Woman Reason to Celebrate Life's Most Precious Gift
Date:4/23/2008

ATLANTA, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Mother's Day is traditionally filled with joy and honor for mothers everywhere. But for Yancey Pappas of Woodstock, Ga., the coming of Mother's Day was nearly not a cause for celebration.

Pappas was diagnosed at age 18 with a rare liver disease. After she and her husband tried unsuccessfully for three years to have a baby naturally, she went to a fertility clinic and underwent a barrage of tests, only to be declined help because of her liver issues.

This prompted her to approach Dr. Perloe about her desire to become pregnant. He read and heard the comprehensive summary of Pappas's liver condition and her years of trying to get pregnant and decided to accept her as a patient.

"I'm a nurse so I told Dr. Perloe everything I knew and had learned from the team of doctors I had assembled about my liver problems, and he wasn't chicken," Pappas said.

She said she had spent the last couple of years living in a "protective bubble," convincing herself she'd never get pregnant to shield her from disappointment, yet she wanted to make one last attempt.

After completing testing and undergoing just one in vitro fertilization, she became pregnant. The years of trying, tests and emotional stress were over, and Pappas and her husband were given life's most precious gift, a daughter.

"Arie is fantastic," she said. "She is a real gift to my husband and me, and one that makes us reflect on the true meaning of Mother's Da
