Our lives are made of a series of chapters which when placed together creates a unique book that details a range of experiences. Chapters tell of times of success and achievement, of happiness and joy. Others contain the darker times of life, the failures, demonstrations of weakness, and periods of sorrow. Each chapter is as unique as the whole book and as unique as the main characters of the book.Unwritten is a book that tells the unique story of Andrew and Lynn. Infertility and adoption are not unique. Many couples encounter both. However, this is their unique story which contains many chapters and which contain many of the human experiences and the extremes of emotions. Unwritten provides an insight into the reality of both infertility and the process of IVF, but also adoption. The story is real, at times it is raw and approached with openness and vulnerability as well as humour and expresses the delight of some of the positive results on the journey. Unwritten also contains some insight into the lessons that Andrew and Lynn learned; dealing with disappointment, maintaining relationships when you're hurting, coming through a crisis of faith, and handling interpersonal issues. This book will help not only those who are going through infertility issues or thinking of adopting children, but it will help anyone who has found that life has not turned out as they had hoped. It will bring hope and faith to believe that there is something beyond the circumstances which you have encountered so far. The life we have lived to date is not necessarily the conclusion of the story. Imagine a blank page, new chapters to write. Imagine the possibility of being free to believe, dream, and imagine the future. Unwritten is about just that; blank pages, new stories knowing that it doesn't matter what has gone before. The rest is still unwritten.

Statistics show that over two million couples will experience some type of infertility issue when they try to become pregnant. However, when you are one of those two million, you feel completely alone and believe that no one can truly understand what you are going through. This honest and revealing book documents one couple's long and arduous journey to become parents from the eyes of the author. The longer this process took, the more emotional and difficult things became, and the more the author relied on this journal to sort out all the emotions she was having. She never expected that this journal would last for years, hundreds of hormone shots and pills, blood draws, surgical procedures, terrorist attacks, international flights and the most emotional and financial roller coaster that she had ever been on. But she and her husband were desperate to become parents, to have their own child to love, to hug, to experience life with. By sharing their experience, this book offers insight into the emotional, physical and sociological effects infertility has on a couple's relationship, their families, friends and themselves as individuals. It also provides in-depth detail of popular infertility treatments, domestic and international adoption processes.
