NIAW 2016, Julie's Story: Fragile X Syndrome

Hello, My name is Julie Thomas and my husband is Steve. We went through Embryo Donation or ED to get our daughter. Here is our story:

THE PAIN OF THE "PARENTING HOLIDAYS" FOR THE PRE-PARENT by Helen Adrienne, LCSW, BCD

Reproduction is germane to being alive, human or otherwise. It sometimes seems that you are surrounded by babies: birds, bees, dogs, sloths, and more galling than anything, your friends or neighbors who aren't sure that they want a baby but find themselves pregnant by accident. That is, everyone and everything reproduces but you. Helen Adrienne gives insight into the emotional plight for those affected by infertility.
