  3. Wow! Your blog is amazing!

    I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Sue and I am co-authoring a book with a number of my friends whom I met years ago through the RESOLVE National Infertility Assn. of Greater San Diego. Our book is close to being released on e-readers and is entitled, “Ten Journeys of Hope.” Our tag line is “Conceived from Infertility.” There are ten of us who have each found a different path to resolution. We have covered the gambit: donor egg, surrogacy, frozen embryo transfer, PSOD, multiple miscarriage, IVF, GIFT, ZIFT, ICSI, unexplained infertility, adoption, child free living, multiples born after infertility treatment, fraternal twins born to two separate mothers twelve years apart. We each have written our own chapters for our book. In addition, we have one person who wrote from the guy’s perspective. Collectively we have endured nearly 100 years of infertility treatments and we have remained the best of friends over the years, because no one “gets it” like those who have walked in a pair of “infertility shoes”. We have always vowed to write a book and work to do more to support the people who are in the throws of infertility treatment. We have even designed a wristband to go with our book and “JOURNEY OF HOPE” is embossed on the bands, which match our book jacket. We are close to fulfilling our goal and completing our book, which should be in print this fall. I was wondering if you or some of your fellow bloggers would be interested in knowing about our book and/or helping us get the word out. We plan to donate 10% of our profits from the books and the wristbands back to RESOLVE National Infertility Support Group or Infertility research.

    You are clearly a well-followed blogger and I thought you wouldn’t mind helping a fellow infertile sister who is trying to provide more awareness and hope for those who are struggling.

    Thanks in advance for anything you can offer me.

    P.S. I cried when I read Patricia's poem and wondered if she would give permission to include it in our book.
