Author: Robyn Wolfson Vorster

In the last twenty years, Robyn has been a wordsmith, a social scientist, a management consultant, a project manager, a specialist helping people learn, and an expert in how organisations get things said and done. But, it has been becoming a mom that has been both her greatest challenge and her greatest joy. Now, as a survivor of multiple IVFs and a passionate adoption advocate, she uses her own story and story-telling ability to help others facing similar challenges. She runs a chaotic household in a tiny house in a beautiful leafy suburb where she looks after a biological son (8), an adoptive daughter (3), two step-daughters in their twenties, three cats, six fish and as many wild birds as she can feed (oh, and a husband too).
