Sometimes Prayers Aren't Enough

This month has been heartbreaking for the IF blogosphere. And the hits just keep on coming. I am absolutely gutted by what I read this morning.

As I posted yesterday, Mo's water broke at 23 weeks. She was induced. Unfortunately, Mo lost their beautiful baby boy, Nadav, a long-awaited treasure and miracle.

This community has come together in an outpouring of grief and sadness, as we always do. For although we have never met in person, we are in this together. As Jjiraffe describes us:

The truth is, we are all friends. Real friends, not just “Internet friends.” Even though in most cases we have never met face-to-face, it’s like we are in the same sorority or dorm floor in college. Separated from friends and families, we share our histories (about ALI, instead of the douchey guys my friends and I used to obsess over at University), we listen to each other’s stories, we laugh. And when one of us is hurt, we cry.

So today, we come together to shed tears in the hopes of taking Mo's grief and lessening it by sharing it among all of us.

As I posted on Mo's blog, Nadav, please know how very much you are loved and you will be missed forever.

I just read about her the other day and I held out hope. But I am weeping right now. More grief. More unfairness in a world of unfairness.

I am so sorry to hear about Mo, my heart sunk with grief when I read this and my thoughts and prayers go out to her.

I'm a follower of several blogs in the IF community, and also on the board for Fertile Future, an Ottawa based organization that helps with fertilty preservation for cancer patients. Currently I'm organizing a Toronto event - here is the link: I was wondering if you might be able to help spread the word about the event and this important cause.

If you have any questions or would like to chat further about the orgaization, the cause and the event - also if you have thoughts on other Toronto/Ottawa bloggers I might approach - please email me at

Thanks so much,
