Today’s success story is about a woman named Justine. Although her doctors never confirmed, she believes her infertility journey started with a broken back when she was younger. Until she met her husband, she wasn’t even sure she wanted kids, but it turns out that line of thinking was just a defense mechanism because she didn’t think having children was possible following her back injury. Unlike many infertility journeys, she fairly immediately pursued surrogacy because no one was sure how her body would respond to a pregnancy after spending a year of her life in a body cast. Join us to hear how she’s devoted herself to a ‘childfull’ life, despite the fact that her surrogate never became pregnant.
Today I am dedicating my blog to National Infertility Awareness Week and to the launch of Justine Brooks Froelker’s latest book The Mother of Second Chances, based on her blog Ever Upward, releasing on April 17th. (Check out my interview with Justine here! She’ll also be back on the show again soon.) (more…)
