  • "I started blogging about the first part of my IVF cycle after I read an article about Tertia and Julie and their blogs in the June 2005 Reader's Digest Australia. I wanted what they had: the circle of friendship and support. Originally, I wanted to journal my grief and trying to conceive via IVF (my first natural pregnancy ended in 2004 when our daughter was stillborn at 26 weeks gestation). Six months later in 2005, we went down the IVF path."
  • "Over time I have steered away from infertility and loss because I felt so blessed and felt I needed to move on and let others fill that niche because my grief was less intense. It was too far off my radar to be honest and authentic. I still mention significant days and life experiences as the need arises."
  • "I feel very blessed with the people I have met - the friendship and the connections and the honesty of some bloggers in revealing their own adversity, adventures and truimphs. All over the world people want to be friendly to me."
