  • To those who experienced loss through miscarriage, failed adoptions or running away— I mourn with you.

  • To those who walk the hard path of infertility, fraught with pokes, prods, tears and disappointment—I walk with you. Forgive me when I say foolish things. I don’t mean to make things harder.
