Nekzan and Delara ( names changed to protect identity) were both in their late thirties. They were married since 7 years and had been trying to become parents since last 4 years.
Due to hectic work schedules, they hardly had time to relax and take care of themselves. After changing jobs and settling down in a smaller city they decided to go in for medical treatment in order to conceive.
Multiple doctors , innumerable tests and three failed treatment cycles had left Nekzan and Delara financially and emotionally broken. However, deep in their hearts the desire to be called mom and dad by their own child was still burning.
One day , Delara saw a very interesting advertisement about Jiyo Parsi. She checked the internet and found out that the Jiyo Parsi programme gives reimbursement to Parsi couples who are undergoing treatment to tackle issues of fertility.
The dream of having a baby seemed to become a reality in the near future because it was lack of resources that had forced the couple to stop treatment.
They went through the treatment this time without the financial pressure causing a great deal of stress to them. God had His own plans. The treatment failed again .
Delara was very upset but after talking to Rita , the Jiyo Parsi counsellor she was willing to try one more time. God's delays are never God's denials. When the tests revealed that Delara was indeed pregnant, the joy they experienced was beyond measure.
