An Introduction...

going through a divorce, not able to get pregnant, infertility

Hello & Welcome !

My husband and I have had extraordinary lives.  More than we ever could have imagined.  We have had life changing experiences that have caused us to truly live in a better way now.

Many people have been interested in what we have to say about it.  It has been one of the greatest joys of our lives to share what we know.  And so, we decided to start sharing some of it here.

We've each experienced a divorce in our prior marriages, long-term infertility, and many other challenging experiences that life brings.  But we've also experienced deliverance in ways we never knew was possible.  We've learned how to be really, really happy & at peace no matter what our circumstances might be.  We hope this blog can be a great resource for anyone interested.  If we can be of inspiration to just one, this effort will be worth it to us. 

With Love,

Danny & Mara
