A Different Kind of Infertility- By: Anonymous

There is a kind of infertility that no one speaks about but it is so prevalent in our society. No, it is not because of a medical problem or a timing problem but rather a status problem. It is present in the Jewish single men and women who are longing to have a life [...]

OUR JOURNEY Month after month we prayed for a blessing, and month after month we were met with disappointment.

Memories of Thanksgiving Past – By: Rachel

Two years ago on Thanksgiving marks my “rock bottom” of infertility. I had just suffered another miscarriage, from a pregnancy that so much time, energy and money had gone into. You see, we did a year of IVF cycles and genetic testing and only came up with two good embryos; this was one of [...]

Mother’s day is a hard day for me. My childhood home was a house where every day was Mother’s day (and our mother would remind us of that!). I lost my mother when I was newly engaged, the most exhilarating and stressful time of my life. Losing a parent at any point in one’s [...]

Infertility: A Path to Parenthood- By: Linda Korn

2017-03-31T11:34:11-04:00

I’m sitting cross legged on the floor with my childhood friend Robin; two pre-teens pinching each other, wondering Are we really here, or Is this a dream? How would we know the difference? What will I be when I grow up?  Have I already met my husband?  What will our children be like? I’m [...]

Teacher after teacher would explain that Hashem gives us struggles because He wants our prayers. He wants our soul, our heartfelt prayer! Well here goes nothing: Hashem, please make this month the last. Please let me be [...]

Sixteen Months and Counting – By: Anonymous

2017-03-17T12:41:54-04:00

Sixteen months ago I walked arm in arm with my parents with slow and steady steps to my Chupah to meet my beloved under a canopy of white. Sixteen months ago I walked around him seven times, seven circles of envelopment, seven turns of intimacy and of building a home together. Sixteen months ago we [...]
