I look at my little girl, who is now three years old, and I can’t help but marvel at how fast time is flying by. My daughter is getting big. She is a very happy and healthy preschooler. She has not a care in the world. My husband and I are lucky that we can provide her with all of her needs. For that fact, I am very grateful.
Amazing, hopeful news for infertile patients around the world! The first successful uterus transplant was performed in Turkey on 22 year old Derya Sert, a woman born without a uterus. 18 months after healing from her transplant, Derya started menstruating. Seeing that the organ was functioning, doctors felt she was ready to try and get pregnant. She was in fact born with healthy ovaries, so doctors recommended IVF. After egg retrieval and embryo transfer, Derya is now two weeks pregnant!
Ever since my husband and I ended our seven year battle with fertility treatments and decided not to pursue adoption, I have been trying to figure out what to do with my life.
Every year I look forward to St. Patrick’s Day because of one thing: Irish soda bread. My grandma made it her whole life and passed down her recipe and her cast iron skillet to me before she died.
Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up and I have to say that I look forward to this day every year. Saint Patrick’s Day reminds me of my grandmother, a proud Irish-American born in New York City. She loved this day and usually spent it with many of her 11 brothers and sisters. The day also reminds me of my Papa, whose quick Irish wit and quiet charm defined him. My Grandparents imparted so much of their wisdom upon me and my cousins over the years.
Can you recall a time when you were bullied as a kid? I can. I clearly remember what it is like to be teased, shunned and physically overwhelmed by someone bigger and stronger than myself. It felt awful.
Here's a great way to indulge in a delicious brownies without breaking your gluten free-dairy free diet!
The other day, I dropped a cast iron skillet on my pinky toe. I was aware my daughter was in earshot, so I let out a long string of faux curses that I always say, “Mother of goodness…holy bananas… mother farger, that hurt!”
These days there are so many of us who are on diets that prohibit dairy for one reason or another. It's hard to find a sweet treat that doesn’t have dairy and it can make Valentine’s Day, well, a bummer.
