Last week I have the privilege of gathering with some of the most hilarious women I know to be on KSL 5’s Noon News.
While our topic of Coping with Infertility wasn’t inherently hilarious, these women sure do make it a hoot!
Kerstin Daynes (left in turquoise) is the author of the best book on infertility I have ever read, Infertility: Help, Hope and Healing. She is the creator of the Utah Infertility Awareness Events and also writes at LDSinfertility.org. She’s been a guest blogger here at The R House as well sharing the “trick” to surviving infertility.
Christine Anderson (middle in the black dress) is a fellow adoptive mom and one of my favorite play date friends. We used to serve together on the National Board for Families Supporting Adoption. She is an infertility survivor of 17 years, hilarious and a PhD. She has been a guest blogger too talking about her journey to a family. She blogs at Counting Blessings Not Sheep.
Tiffany Alleman (right in stripes) and I should not spend too much time together …and by NOT, I mean WE BETTER. No one makes me laugh harder at infertility than she does. You should have seen her roundhouse kicks in the KSL parking garage. I bet you didn’t know that a former Mrs. Utah (she just gave up her crown last week!) has such skills! She is doing amazing work at The Gift of Motherhood.
We sat down on camera and chatted with Scott Haws about our disease–the emotions involved, where you can go for help and how you can support someone who is suffering. In case you weren’t able to watch the 5 minute segment live, here it is.
I made a similar point to fertile friends and family members as I did in this segment in a recent post on infertility,
Be here for us, don’t ignore us, but please know that just because you’ve been able to conceive it doesn’t make you the expert on infertility or fertility for that matter.
Because, um yeah, we have all gotten those pearls of wisdom from “loved ones” who are “just trying to help” telling us what we should be doing to achieve pregnancy. That topic alone would be a hilarious show.
We. Had. A. Blast!
I will admit that there is even some chatter about an infertility talk show. Why should The View get to have all the fun? How great would that be? The wheels in my head are spinning!
Thanks to KSL for such a great opportunity!
