On Twitter, where I spend more of my social media time these days (@BelleBoggs, that’s me), people have been posting early 2016/now photos that represent how they feel. I don’t have any kittenish photos of Mischief (RIP), but this sums up my mien, post-November 8:

“The life an infertile person seeks comes to her not by accident and not by fate but by hard-fought choices. How to put together the portfolio of photographs. How to answer at the home study. What clinic or doctor or procedure. Donor egg or donor sperm or donor embryo. Open or closed adoption. What country, what boxes to check or uncheck. What questions to ask, and ask again. When to start and when to stop. What to say when her child says, Tell me my story.
Belle Boggs, The Art of Waiting: On Fertility, Medicine, and Motherhood
