baby mama

In preparation for National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) later this month, I decided to host an Infertility Movie Night to raise money for RESOLVE.

It was such a fun event and a great opportunity to talk about the common myths and facts about infertility and family building in popular culture today. The menu was simple: pizza, salad, wine and chocolate chip cookies.

Only a few close friends were invited so that we could have an intimate conversation. We talked, laughed, cried and shared stories. But most of all, there was some deeper insight gained in regards to infertility.

As the night wound down, we watched a funny infertility related movie - Baby Mama. The evening was truly one that I will never forget. I'm blessed to have so many supportive people in my life.

And I almost forgot, we raised $150 to help support RESOLVE's mission to improve the lives of women and men living with infertility.
