"After receiving the shocking news of Azoospermia, Lisa guided us through the rough waters that laid ahead. From accepting the reality of needing to use a sperm donor to the multiple miscarriages that we encountered, we were able to keep pushing through towards our dream of having a family. With Lisa's encouragement and guidance, we welcomed our beautiful baby daughter two months ago."



"We got through our donor anxiety, learned how to carefully choose the right donor and created a beautiful narrative for Sienna with you. We don't know how people do it without your help! Thank you!"



"Lisa helped support our journey to parenthood even before we were fortunate enough to get pregnant with our surrogate. It can feel a little bit lonely trying to navigate the overwhelming differences of becoming same-sex parents. Without Lisa, her course, and now her Lifebook, we feel less lonely on this journey."
