My infertility journey would have been a lot more bumpy and anxiety-ridden, had I not found the Creating a Family website and radio show early on. I married for the first time at 39.5 years. After a miscarriage, I found a radio show episode that answered many of my questions. I was hooked! I downloaded past Creating a Family radio shows, subscribed to the new ones and listened to one or two a day on my daily walks or in the car. Dawn Davenport’s down-to earth and frank journalistic style of interviewing, along with the quality of professionals (and sometimes fellow patients) she has on the show, are the reason I recommend this site to anyone with challenges in this area. I also appreciate that Dawn responds to listener feedback and asks our questions during the show. Since my miscarriages, I have frozen my eggs, gone through IVF with those eggs and used an egg donor (one of my wonderful sisters) to achieve one successful pregnancy (my own gametes) and one current one (my sister’s gametes). I’m including a family photo of Michael and Clara, our twins from our first pregnancy. Even as my kids grow, I will continue listening to the show. As a nurse, I embrace the scientific content of the topics. As a mother, I embrace the wonder and magic of it all. Thank you, Creating a Family for all of the solid information, guidance and advocacy! I listen to shows on both infertility and adoption. Not only are they interesting from a human development standpoint, but the adoption shows have given me resources and helpful things to say to my friends (and even strangers) pursuing that option.
