Navigating the Road of Infertility by Chrissie Lee Kahan and Aaron Michael Kahan is a poignant introspective into one couple’s trials and tribulations in attempting to become parents. While still in the ‘honeymoon stage’ of their marriage, the Kahans decide to take the plunge and attempt to get pregnant. Like most typical young women today, Chrissie made sure she was well-informed, got the ovulation app and the couple enthusiastically embarked on a sex ‘free for all’ in order to optimize their c ...more

I am someone who had zero experience with infertility personally. I don't even have close friends or family who have dealt with the issue so I opened this memoir completely ignorant. The struggle this couple endured just trying to get to the point where conception would be possible was almost beyond comprehension. That pressure compounded with devastation month after month when their efforts failed could have been fatal for their marriage. Not so for Chrissie and Aaron. They realized that a fami ...more

I found this book and bought it for a dear friend, who very much enjoyed reading it. I was hoping since I would not be able to relate to her situation, she would find comfort in relating to another couple with a similar experience. We talked about the book and I was so moved by the experiences I picked it up myself.

This couple seemed to have been through every challenge a couple could experience when looking to expand their family. It is a well balanced combination of both useful information, pa

Oh, wow. I can’t count how many times I cried throughout this book. It resonated with me specifically because I’ve seen my best friend of 30+ years struggle with infertility issues. And I know several others who are going through it or have went through it.

Chrissie and Aaron’s story, their struggles, their partnership…it was all so beautifully written and relatable to anyone, even if you have a house filled with children. You can take away many truths and life lessons from what they went throug

A road map from the heart of an honest couple

This is a book that is a road map of a journey the couple took trying to conceive then adopt or foster a child. The book is written in a very understandable and easy to follow format. The emotions of the couple through the attempts and failures are true and very real. It is a great guide through the system of adoption and fostering within this great country. If you are on this path this is a must read. Great insight and detailed experiences. Would rec

I just finished reading the book: Navigating the Road of Infertility. This book was heartbreaking, inspiring and a healing journey for me. I followed Chrissie and Aaron along on their journey to build a family of their own. When it doesn't look like getting pregnant is in the cards for Chrissie and Aaron they turn to adoption, and that brings along with it difficulties of its own.

This is a book that is sometimes hard to read, but it has an optomistic tone, a tone of encouragement and hope for th

According to the media, infertility is now more common than ever. I am not sure if this is really true or simply that couples tend not to put up with their infertility problems and try to address them more nowadays than previously, when there was little to be done about it and people were more inclined to accept their childlessness. We are told that hormones in food may be causing male loss of fertility – poor quality or low motility sperm. I really felt for the authors of this book as they are ...more

I would like to thank the Chrissie for being brave enough to put her story in a book for other women. It helps to know others have gone through similar situations; it feels like we can cry together. She does a great job detailing the procedures she has gone through (and Aaron too). Not only medically, but also in the course of setting up a foster home.
What I liked about this book was her husband added his thoughts throughout the book. This is their journey, and they supported each other during t
