We have some exciting news to share and we hope you can join us (virtually) this Sunday, July 28th. Chris and I will be appearing on the MTV show called True Life, I'm Desperate to Have a Baby. MTV's True Life casting producer contacted us last year after coming across our blog, to participate in an episode focused on people having issues with family building. It was terrifying at first, the thought of having our lives thrown out to wolves in public. Think about all of those Tasty Sneaker comments we already get! But, really, it is kind of a natural step beyond Blog-Land. We will fill everyone in on all of the juicy details after the show airs, but we can give you this teaser: Chris is his normal goofy self and Candace shows everyone the exact way to have an emotional reaction to a fertility med. Spoiler alert, there are no lost limbs, bar fights, or alligator wrestling. Much more to come on the show but really, check it out.
We hope that by sharing our story publicly, we can shed some light on topic of infertility and increase awareness about how infertility affects real people, everyday. The producers did a great job of capturing our story and the highest highs and the lowest lows. We hope you will enjoy it, relate to it, and react to it. Laugh with us, cry with us, and hope with us as you watch us go through our IF journey.
You are invited to participate in our twitter chat leading up to the show, a live chat during the show and we will stay connected to the community as our story continues beyond the show. Feel free to follow us at @rmisconception and join in the conversation at #trueLIFE1in8. There will be several moderators, bloggers, and guests including the author of the book, "The Truth Behind the Secret 'Infertility'," Fran Meadows @FranMeadows and the creator of "The Infertility Survival Kit" by My Hopeful Journey @hopeful_journey.
Help us spread awareness by letting everyone in your Twitterspace, Facebook domain, smoke signal, carrier pigeon club, etc. know about the show. If you want, you can simply cut and paste the lines below into whatever social networking site you use:
