Helping infertile couples to build a family

Helping infertile couples to build a familyErica Walther Schlaefer and her husband, A.J. Schlaefer, adopted their son, born in Korea, in 2008. Almost immediately they began to share the gift of family with others who have struggled with infertility.

The Irondequoit couple knows what it's like to hope every day for a child, to tell themselves that getting pregnant is natural and simple and that next month will be different. They know what it's like to endure years of infertility treatments, characterized by needles and bruises and pain and, finally, disappointment.

Their experience led to Parenthood For Me, a nonprofit organization that provides couples with information and resources to help them sort through both infertility and adoption issues.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
