Like many others, when New Years rolls around, I like to take a look into the past year and evaluate. Here is what stands out to me for 2011 for which I am grateful, among the other blessings in my life:
As you know, I practice fertility law. And, as you can imagine, I come across people daily who are struggling valiantly to deal with infertility and/or to build a family or help to build someone else's family through assisted reproductive procedures. Some people's stories are heartbreaking, others maddening and still others full of excitement and joy. All of the stories, though, are stories full of hope, love and longing.
To the fertility community who has embraced me with such open arms, to my clients both past and present who inspire me daily with lessons of hope, giving and trust - I thank you. I know that the role I play in your quest for children is small, but your role in my life is enormous. I am so grateful for the chance to make a difference, however small, in helping you build your family. Thank you!
