This update is to report progress on the book.
I am proud of how it turned out. The manuscript is being finalized and I will be approving it shortly. And the cover 😍
I am enjoying the marketing aspect of this. It is a chance to tap in to my creative side, and leverage social media in the process to get the word out. I’m always short on time, so I have to be creative and efficient!
Thanks to all of you who have supported me on this journey. Some have you have been on the train a while, while others have hopped on at stops along the way as we have gotten to know each other. The year 2019 has been all about expanding connections and getting to know people better. I’ve really enjoyed it!
I will continue to create mini presentations highlighting photos of our incredible journey using Adobe Spark. If you have my seen the presentation yet, here it is. I will find the best of the best photos, and tell a story with each one. All of this is a part of the marketing for the book. The book isn’t about making money – it is about telling the story and hopefully shedding light on a very common issue of infertility and giving those still struggling with it hope. Also, it is my hope that the book demonstrates just how deep the rabbit hole 🕳 can go.
Failure, humility and determination all took on new and unexpected meanings over the course of our journey. When you go through something like this, your resolve is tested. You question your purpose and your ability to influence outcomes. Your brain 🧠 gets rewired.
My wife Angelique took the kids to a trial gymnastics 🤸♀️ lesson. Michaela was a natural on most of the equipment, especially the balance beam and the rings. I think I will enroll just her and will have that be our standing one on one activity. It is time to have them be even more independent of one another.
We will figure out what to get the other two involved in.
Swim lessons are still in the mix for all three.
We are also gearing up to buy a house this summer.
We have a short family trip coming up in a few weeks. We will be meeting up with other family members in Zephyr Cove in Nevada. It will be the first time the kids leave California, and an opportunity for them to meet some more cousins on my side of the family – there are a few newer family members. Will post photos after that get together happens. Looking forward to it!
