I know that over the holidays it is often hard to remember all of things that we should be thankful for, especially when you are wanting a child so badly that it takes over your very being. But, we all need to remember that having hope is a blessing in itself. The very fact that you can create your family through adoption, surrogacy, third party family building, IVF, or one of the many other medical procedures that are now available should provide us the hope that we can all be thankful for. So, while your dream of a family may still be just that - let us all be thankful for hope.

But this time around opponents say the wording is just too vague.
A yes vote on amendment 62 will determine human life is created at conception and should have the same rights and protections as anyone that's been born.
Supporters of the measure took to the corner of 12th and north Sunday.
Frozen Embryos - I found this interesting article, which I thought was timely since The Surrogacy Lawyer Radio Show with Dr. Craig Sweet, who is big proponent of embryo donation. The study listed below shows that couples who use donated eggs are more likely to donate their remaining frozen embryos to others for conception. Interesting read. Your thoughts?
Robert Edwards (pictured) of Britain won the 2010 Nobel Prize in medicine for developing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Edwards, an 85-year-old professor emeritus at the University of Cambridge, started working on IVF as early as the 1950s.
