In the early hours of Sunday morning thieves broke into Julie Coghill’s Gilmerton home that she shares with husband Philip, 15-year-old son and two foster children under the age of two and stole car keys and other items.
Mrs Coghill’s story was made public when a friend called local radio DJ for Forth One Grant Stott who talked about her situation on air and grabbed the attention of Paula Lackie’s husband from Haddington, East Lothian.
Mr and Mrs Lackie decided to give Julie their buggie, which they were planning to sell because it is too big for their car.
Paula, 43, is expecting her first child in 29 days time even though 20 years ago she was told that she would be unable to have children of her own. The couple have two adopted children, a boy aged 16 and a girl aged 12, who used to be in foster care.
TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
The In-fertility Cleanse: Detox, Diet and Dharma for Fertility
-- Women who are trying to conceive will find a holistic approach in this hands-on manual. Step-by-step guidelines help implement a three-part program—of yoga, hypoallergenic and anti-inflammatory nutrition, and stress-reduction techniques—to cleanse the body, mind, and spirit in preparation for pregnancy.
In addition, this program draws on cleansing methods from traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda and has been specifically designed for women who are trying naturally or with assisted-reproduction plans.
Also based on new clinical research that suggests that gut health, chronic inflammation, and environmental toxins may be root causes of in-fertility, this important book offers all women a natural, holistic approach to readying the womb for a child.
