I am a working mother to twins, thanks to modern science. I somewhat resemble a giraffe, hence the weird variation on that word as my nom du plume. I also sometimes say obnoxious, pretentious things like nom du plume. I love traveling, reading, pretending to be glamorous, and eating at really fancy restaurants. I hate cleaning messes, seeing my hair with its natural roots showing through, being tired and eating at home. The truth is that I do very few of the former and a lot of the later.
Official credentials: I was named a Best Infertility Blog by Allparenting.com. My articles have been syndicated on BlogHer and one of my posts, “A Bird’s Eye View of Your Life,” was featured as a BlogHer Spotlight. I have written for the Ricki Lake Show’s blog. I was nominated for a WeGo Health Activist Award and I was one of three bloggers (in addition to Keiko Zoll from The Infertility Voice and Leah from Single Infertile Female) chosen to speak at the 2012 Fertility Focus Telesummit. And I participate in the “Bitter Infertiles” podcast from time to time.
