I especially want to say “thank you” to the incredible patients I have met through my many years working in reproductive medicine. The stories they have shared with me, their triumphs, and their heartbreaks. We have laughed and we have cried together. Their strength, love, and determination continue to inspire me every single day.
To my son, Ryan, who wanted to contribute to this book. He has such passion for the outdoors, nature, and photography. He has captured striking pictures of the incredible beauty in the Pacific Northwest; many of these scenes are right from our own neighborhood.
My ultimate intention for you is to find HOPE . . .
Hope to alleviate fears and uncertainties
Hope that you move forward on your journey
Hope that your dreams will come true
Hope that you will find peace within yourself
Let's go take a walk . . .

These chapters are meant to serve as your compass, map, and mile markers.
You are not alone and you won't be without your walking tools.
It's okay to stop and catch your breath.
