As I detailed in my profile, I am a senior at Arizona State University, graduating this May. I am currently conducting research on the emotional effects of infertility as part of a senior capstone research project. On a personal note, my mother experienced infertility when trying to concieve and ultimately resorted to adoption (and got me!). While I am still young to be contemplating pregnancy, I am very interested in this subject because of my mother's struggles and emotions, which she has disclosed to me more and more the older I get. I became a member on this site with the hopes that other members may wish to discolse their emotions and struggles with infertility to me to aid in my research. I hope that my research will culminate in a creative presentation of many different women's stories through short story, poetry and photos. If you are at all interested in participating in my research (through an interview, or just your own personal story posted to me, or possible in the creation of a personal poem or short story under my guidance and supervision [creative writing is one of my majors]) please let me know. Thank you!!
