Tell us a little about yourself. Even when I was a little girl and boys had cooties, I knew that someday Id grow up, get married, and have children. After all, didnt everyone? But the years passed, and no children came. Yet, advice was plentiful. Everyone who discovered that we were having trouble conceiving volunteered their own magic cure. Our fertility specialist loaded us down with pamphlets, articles, and information on web-sites. But, despite all the information, my heart still felt as if it were breaking every day. And the specialist offered no cure for that.
What was your motivation behind this project? Eventually, I met others, just like me, who were struggling with the same heartaches, questions, and fears. As they shared their stories over cups of coffee or glasses of lemonade, I encountered a type of wisdom and comfort that was not available in the reams of information I had on infertility. Theirs were stories of experience, of those who had walked the path I trod and found a glimmer of peace in the midst of it. Their understanding and insights changed me, helped me to see through the darkness of infertility, and showed me God as I had never seen Him before.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? This book is a compilation of their stories, the experiences of people who have struggled and are struggling through the pain of infertility. It is not meant to be guidebook on infertility treatments, or a manual on what to do, think, or feel. It gives no easy answers. It offers no quick cures. Rather, this book comes from the hearts of fellow travelers, like you, and in its pages I pray that youll find what you need - hope, understanding, and the healing touch of God.
