TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
The Belated Baby: A Guide to Parenting After Infertility, by Kelly James-Enger and Jill S. Browning. Publisher: Cumberland House Publishing (May 1, 2008)The Belated Baby: A Guide to Parenting After Infertility
by Kelly James-Enger and Jill S. Browning

-- Infertility is a mind-set and that every woman who experiences infertility is forever changed, even when she eventually has the child she yearned for.

When many women who have gone through fertility treatments describe their experience, they say it "abused their soul."

The experience may have also hurt their relationship with their husband and sometimes permanently altered relationships with their extended families.

Studies show that even after the desperation of infertility subsides, emotional wounds still fester and an asterisk accompanies her bundle of joy.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
