Our baby boy arrived August 13, 2011! Sorry for the delay in posting - he was 12 days late (!!) and then we've been contending earthquakes and hurricanes on the East Coast! But we have arrived safely home. When I can catch a breath I will post more about the experience. I feel wonderful and relieved and thankful. This infertility journey has completed with two beautiful kids. Though this seems like a big end, really it's just the beginning.
A journal of life with IVF and whatever unconventional baby-making methods that work
Whatever art form it takes—photo, video, graphic or craft—some predicaments in life need more than words to express the truth. IVF is not just a medical treatment, it is a way of life. Now surrogacy is my road. I intend to be a parent, however it works. This blog is my commitment to writing and visually creating what I mean by this. There may be an art to getting pregnant but there is equally an art to being infertile.
