HAPPY 21ST ! INCIID celebrates 21 years in Cyber Space. INCIID was created in October 1994 during Infertility Awareness Week when there was nothing anywhere in cyber space about infertility. So INCIID became the first infertility site on the web in March of 1995. We've been supporting infertile couples for more than two decades. In 2004 we were the first to organize a national IVF scholarship program and since them many babies have been born with INCIID's help.
Please LIKE US on FACEBOOK and Join a FACEBOOK Group: IVF Scholarship, General Infertility Information, or The INCIID Soapbox (and Current Events Discussions). We also added Adoption Discussions, Parenting After Infertility and Special Education Advocacy

Our last article talked about arguments in the legal sense and how we came to have a particular set of rules and procedures for making formal legal arguments. The article also talked about how to apply the principles of those rules when we “make our case” during Team meetings with the school. Several parents and advocates called or sent email messages to me about the article. Some asked follow-up questions. Some asked for an example of how to apply the principles in real life.
"I was under the impression that once you decide to start a family, you toss the birth control and give it the 'old college try'. BAM! There you are in your cute maternity jeans, booking your family trip to Disney World. I was surely mistaken. The reality my husband and I suffered through years of failed infertility treatments, disappointment, and expense.
