This may not be the best place, I don't know where else to ask.
My son has lived in China for several years, happily married to a wonderful Chinese woman. Both early 30s. Like most people, they assumed they could start a family when they chose. They've just had their 5th round of IVF without success.
They switched to a different clinic last year, DIL had surgery (something causing fluid to build up and prevent the implanted embryo from sticking). They really thought there would be success this time. They're so sad, angry, desperate. I don't know what to say, or perhaps more important, what not to say, given the difficulty of emotional conversations over the phone or Facetime. DIL doesn't speak English so DS has to translate everything.
My DD is a little older and has a child, DIL's brother is older and has one. I don't know anyone else who has gone through IVF, or struggled with infertility.
Has anyone been through this? It's costing them a fortune. Coming here to try a British clinic is hardly possible as DS can't take blocks of time off work and DIL can't manage here without him to translate for her. I only wish I could wave a magic wand to make it work.
