Blurb

It's been years since Ben and Elise started trying to have a baby "the old fashioned way." Heck, it had been years since they'd started trying to have a baby using the best medical technology money could buy! The last few years have left Elise feeling alone, especially as she mourns the loss of a yearned for pregnancy. Then she meets two other women who also can't have babies - a sisterhood of sorts. And the connections she builds with those women help all three of them through some of the worst - and best - moments of their lives.

Prologue

That little white bean flickering away with a strong heartbeat. Tears stung my eyes, and words failed. I could think only “baby” and “ours,” still amazed to finally get there.

I looked up at Ben, smiling through my tears, and said the words I’d been too afraid to say until now.

“I’m pregnant.”
