Emoblopedia: Parenting After Infertility or Loss

Congratulations and welcome to the parenting after infertility or loss page of the emoblopedia. If you are reading these entries, you've probably finally achieved parenthood. And, if you're anything like the other stirrup queens and sperm palace jesters in the universe, you are probably terrified and excited at the same time. You may have a touch of ambivalence about being a parent--especially during those early days. You may have been so focused on the adoption or the pregnancy that you never truly resolved your feelings about using your specific path to parenthood. We hope that you find reading these blog entries helpful and they bring you a modicum of emotional comfort. They may help you find words to express how you are feeling or show you the light at the end of the tunnel. If you have your own blog and would like to contribute to the emoblopedia, submit all links to entries to Melissa at
