The Infertility Guy

Status message

Active context: desktop

My wife JK and I went through a 2 1/2-year odyssey of infertility.

To the Wannabe Dads, I promise a road map of everything I ever learned or experienced that can help you survive. I was lucky enough to find friends that helped me cope. Maybe I can do the same for you. I'm desperate to find the male readers, so I may sacrifice myself on the altar of humility from time to time. And hey, I'm a guy! Naturally I'll write something guys understand.

To the Wannabe Moms, I know that learning the male perspective can help you, too! I just happen to speak fluent guy and fluent English.

To all of you, I know that your stories will eventually shape this blog. Please share them.

My wife and I finally reached the other side and welcomed twins, a boy and a girl, in December of 2010. They have an adorable older brother named Luke the Dog — a sweet, over-exuberant, shedding machine.

Desire a little more of Alec's dorky infertility perspective? He chronicles his and JK's infertility story in the blog, I Want to be a Daddy.

Our dog Luke is a bit of an oddity. Half Golden Retriever (and half Great Pyrenees), he hates water more than any dog I’ve ever known. Hates baths, hates the rain, even walks around puddles.

When he learned that the upstairs was the hated bath place, he never again willingly climbed the stairs.

We’ve just celebrated July 4th, and that has me thinking about freedom. Most infertile couples in the United States are far from free.

If you have noticed, fervor around the Family Act of 2011 is heating up, and if you have not contacted your senator, it’s high time you did! That law will help free infertile couples from a financial burden by offering a tax credit against fertility treatments.

Father’s Day seems to be the topic of the moment. I’ve been invited to the Father’s Day Twitterview with RESOLVE Executive Director Barbara Collura, and I’ve started to see stories and articles.

Note: Friday, June 17, at 2 p.m. EDT. You can follow the hash-tag #tvFD (representing Twitterview for Father’s Day) at this link.

There are a lot of Wannabe Dads out there. This is a painful time of year. It’s difficult to imagine that your own Father’s Day may never come.
