A Big Sister in Heaven

BlogHer Original Post

A Big Sister in Heaven picks up the story of the Martin family 6 months after the death of their only child, Vivienne, to brain cancer at just 9 months old.  Infertile due to an emergency hysterectomy in childbirth, the Martin's are pursuing a Gestational Surrogacy to expand their family.  The blog discusses the emotional aspects of these decisions, as well as sharing resources about surrogacy, our ethical approach to IVF and strategies for managing the financial pressures involved.

A Big Sister in Heaven is primarily written by Mommy, but on very rare occasion Daddy pipes up to share his thoughts about the infertility process and loss from a husband and father's perspective.
