This is just beautiful...I too had cancer in my early thirties and was thrusted into fertility talks and multiple miscarriages and then a marriage ending. I wonder if without the pressure of kids whether things would have just moved forward more naturally without so much intense and irreparable heartache. There is so much secrecy to motherhood and those that can and those who can’t. Also women who only tell their story after the happy ending. Grateful for your piece that makes me feel less alone x

Thank you for sharing this. Great take on the whole subject honest, with a sense of humour and not bitter at all. I went through this myself minus the cancer. So 100% with you on all of this. It’s great to read about it.

So well written Laura. Quite a goodbye (or see you later) letter to California! Keep on inspiring people with your words and actions friend.
