When you are struggling to start a family, none of the options is simple. Medical intervention is scary and fraught with spiritual and philosophical quandaries. The road to adoption is long and arduous. Deciding not to pursue parenthood after dreaming of it for so long can be devastating. It is easy to feel paralyzed, but you CAN move forward - it just takes courage.

We all struggle with fear: fear of acceptance, fear of failure, fear of disappointing others - or ourselves. But we can all move forward. Sometimes we need help from another. At other times we need to dig deep within ourselves. In every situation we need to saddle up.
What fear are you facing? What will it take for you to saddle up?
