Peggy Orenstein

I finished reading Waiting for Daisy, which is Peggy Orenstein’s new book about her 5+ year fight to become a mother. It’s definitely to my liking, in that it’s very honest about her ambivalence about becoming a mother (which I relate to well) and the way fertility treatments put her marriage through the shredder. I’m more moved by reality than I am by sunshiney versions of events. Still, I wish I had read it a year from now. While Damon and I have stayed blessedly relatively tension-free in the past year and a half, some of the anxiety and worry hit a little too close too soon.

  1. There’s an excerpt of that book in the latest Oprah magazine. I was astounded by her persistence. I’m astounded by persistence period as I’m always the first one to give up.
