Infertility is lonely. When one is diagnosed with cancer, families and friends rally. Meals are carefully prepared and delivered by loved ones, and often one’s community will pitch in to help with errands and tasks. The diagnosis of infertility has been shown to be as stressful as the diagnosis of cancer. Rarely, however, does anybody rally for infertility patients. It is often left to the individuals to struggle in silence. The images in this book are a powerful glimpse into the isolation that one experiences, ironically, even in a waiting room surrounded by others enduring similar experiences.
— Eve. C Feinberg, from the Foreward of Waiting
