About this title


A collection of correspondences between two women--brought together by their struggles to conceive a child in the face of infertility--documents their years of infertility traumas and adoption disappointments and their growing friendship. 50,000 first printing. $50,000 ad/promo.

From Library Journal:

The three-year correspondence between two infertile women comprises the text of this book. The women "met" through a letter one of them had written to the Resolve Newsletter , and they began writing a series of letters to each other that are sometimes heartwarming, sometimes tragic, but always supportive and eloquent. Unfortunately, the ways that they solve their mutual childlessness--high technology-assisted reproduction techniques not covered by most insurance programs and so-called "golden cradle" adoption agencies where the cost of a baby runs about $20,000--are simply not available to the average reader. Women without the finances to solve their infertility in the way the authors did may simply end up discouraged rather than heartened by reading this book. An optional purchase for larger public libraries depending upon the community they serve.
