Finally! A book that's been written for me!,
Reviewer: Diane Black, founder of Childless,
Not By Choice
After having read many books about the journey
of being childless, not by choice, this book
covers the subject in a way that none others have. It includes
practical real-life feelings, emotions, and tips on how to endure
such a heartache as never being able to conceive. I feel the
best part is that it is written by both the husband AND wife.
I would definitely advise even those who may know of couples
who are learning how to live childless in a child-filled world
to read this book as it discusses all angles of our loss. It
can assist those who are closest to such a couple to really
and truly understand the struggles we all face. Jan and Dan...
you've done an excellent job in portraying
'life without kids' by circumstance. Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you. I'll be recommending this book to everyone in
my circle of childless not by choice friends! A must for both
male and female to read.
Wonderful book!, October, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from Cincinnati, OH USA
Infertility's Anguish is a practical as well as a philosophical
book. It conveys heartfelt grief yet can make the reader laugh.
It is a very personal story of one couple, interspersed with
anecdotes from interviews with others on the same infertility
journey. The section on dealing with emotions was particularly
helpful, both for men and women. Without giving away the end
results of this couple's struggle, I will say that the book
does a great job of dealing with resolution after years of searching.
This book can help families and friends of infertile couples
understand the ups and downs of infertility, as well as couples
in the middle of anguish at this time.
A Must-Read Infertility Book, September, 2003
Reviewer: Mary Holloway from Orlando, FL USA
This fantastic book, written by an exceptional couple who have
experienced the anguish of infertility, relates stories shared
by many couples who have dealt with infertility. While being
an easy read, it covers difficult topics from "Realizing
There's a Problem" to "Moving on with Your Life."
Individual vignettes illustrate topics such as "We Won't
Be Home For Christmas" and "Have We Done Something
I highly recommend Infertility's Anguish for couples
experiencing infertility. This book is also a "must read"
for the couple's family and friends. Readers will profit from
the wisdom in the stories and gain a better understanding of
the couple's journey. In the process, family and friends will
see how they can be sensitive and supportive.
With more and more couples experiencing infertility,
this is a timely book. I looked for this book ten years ago
when my daughter and son-in-law started their journey with infertility.
A book such as this simply didn't exist.
