    Good advice but...

    As I began reading this book I thought it was going to be written by someone with a long history of infertility who decided to move on and become childfree. I was shocked to find out that the author was only "infertile" for a year and then decided to live childfree. As someone who has been dealing with infertility for 6 years it was hard for me to connect with what the author was saying in this book knowing she did not go through any infertility treatments. I felt as though she did not truely understand what going through the ART procedures (she did none) really do to a women and for a couple. She did interview other couples who were going through infertility for years and I seemed to "connect" with their stories more. The book was great if you do want to know how to begin to live childfree and how to cope with dealing with family and friends who will judge you for that. But I personally couldn't get past the fact that the author did not try other options after one year. As anyone who experiences infertility knows, you don't even begin the testing and visiting specialists until after a year of ttc. So it actually made me a little angry at the fact that the author is trying to convince the "infertile reader" that choosing to live childfree is ok! I do not doubt the feelings she had during her year of ttc, but I do wonder why she did not seek another doctor or opinion. I personally exhauseted all of my options and now am ready to move to the childfree life, I just wish this book was written by someone who had similar experiences that most ttc couples have to deal with. I think it would have more impact of the reader and the reader could "connect" with the author more!

    Excellent 'Moving On' book

    I do wish that I had had this book years ago, as it is an excellent book for those in the infertility maze who are trying to find their way to acheiving some sort of resolution. I tend to find many books regarding the infertility issue very depressing, focusing on 'making do' or pushing the reader off to the adoption route without seriously considering the childfree route. The author tells her own story and explains to the reader in detail about how she arrived at her own choice to be childfree. This book contains heartfelt case histories and helpful quotes from various women throughout. Each woman has a unique story, so the reader is bound to find someone to whom she can relate. The author also includes helpful responses to those well-meaning (or not such well-meaning) people who will try to question the reader's positions and choices. A definate must-read!
