Infertility Support - Taking a Break from My Rant
Pause for Wisdom, Infertility Support
I've been on a roll about infertility, cost, medical insurance coverage and state mandates. Hopefully you all are interested in those things, whether you are covered or not. Because it's about caring about others and not just having the focus on oneself. And that matters.
Taking a break for a few thoughts and infertility support from those so much wiser than myself. Good thing there are so many of those around!
