Reading the Silent Sorority for the second time
I knew that Silent Sorority was published in spring 2009. But it wasn't until spring 2010 that I was ready to buy it and read it.
I remember when reading it for the first time, I almost cried my heart out. I felt so sorry for Pamela and Alex. I felt so sorry for my DH & me. No other book before (or after) touched my soul so deeply.
When reading the book for the first time, I was in the middle of IVF roller coaster (with 7 unsuccessful IVF treatments behind me and 3 unsuccessful IVF treatments still waiting for me).
I started to re-read the book again this week, three years later. This time the book did not make me sad. It was actually lovely to reread the book and see, how much happiness can come out of the dark years of infertility. You see, I met Pamela and Alex twice so far. And they are one of the happiest & loveliest couples I have ever met.
And I think that for my DH & me the darkest years of infertility are far behind. I really feel that only happiness is waiting for us.
If you don't have your own copy, here is the link:
(whenever I buy books online, I always use this website nowadays since the postage is already included in the price).
PS: I took the photo on Sunday, while on the beach of the lake with my DH. Isn't it lovely?
PPS: I would love to get the photo of your book Silent Sorority travelling to a beautiful place. Please send the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
It will be published on my blog (I took idea from the travelling dwarfs in the movie Amelie).
