July 25 marked the 38th anniversary of the birth of Louise Brown, the first baby conceived through in vitro fertilization, or IVF. Almost four decades...
She never gave up. Her heart was broken, her world was shattered, but she never gave up. So, in a sense, this rainbow baby of hers is a rainbow to all of us. A light to guide each of us through our own storm and a beautiful reminder that in time, we will all get our own rainbow in one way or another.
On Tuesday morning, I got up. Got dressed and ran my husband to work. After I dropped him off, I went grocery shopping. It's what I do on a typical Tuesday. But this day, I decided to make a couple extra stops.
It dawned on me that I've never met the child who I will be the parent to one day. Perhaps it won't be born of my body, but it will be born of my soul. I hope to one day float with them on a Saturday morning, hopefully not watching their heartbreak.

I was in the prime of my life. Sure I thought about one day marrying and starting a family, but I was too busy to really take it seriously. I was too busy being a doctor and finally having the time to live my life. This lead to the first of many lies I would tell myself about my future fertility.

"I'm sorry your marriage didn't work." My mother's words echo in my mind. When a marriage dissolves, can it only be seen as a failure? Can a relationship also succeed not because it lasts forever, but how it ends?
I was 26 when we decided we were ready to start a family. I had been dreaming of this moment since the day we got married and my heart was so full thinking of the life that lay ahead of us. We were going to be great parents.
