One of the fun things about writing a book like ‘Talking about health’ is that readers tell me that they are inspired by the family stories included in the book. My youngest sister includes her story about a long road to conceiving her daughter–both pictured here with popsicle stick in hand.
I have read many of the stories in my book to my undergraduates and they, like some readers who have told me what they like about the book, love my sister’s story. Perhaps many can relate because they know someone who has gone through something similar [see http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/fertile.htm for CDC statistics about just how many].
Today is my sister’s birthday. I wish we lived closer so that we could have shared a cup of peach green tea. ‘Happy Birthday, Sis!’
