This is my story of late-term stillbirth, international adoption, in-vitro fertilization and between-friends egg donation. Recorded live to a large room full of friends and community members more than a year ago, I’m overjoyed the high-quality recording is now ready to share.

Give it a listen when you have 30 minutes to yourself — I think you’ll be happy you did.

Please forward to anyone you think might enjoy it! Post it on social media — and if you have any connections to The Moth, TED, or anything similar I would dearly love the connection. Experiencing all four of these alternative paths to motherhood has convinced me that sharing this story with as many people as possible is a worthwhile effort.
