The day I took time to ADVOCATE for #infertility

Back in May I took the train up to DC to storm the Hill for Advocacy Day 2013.

It was a day I will never forget. 
 
Stephanie and I with Senator Patty Murray {WA}. We spoke with her briefly and thanked her for introduced the Women Veterans and Other Health Care Improvement Act S 131.

All of us who stormed the Hill for infertility with Representative Larsen.

I recently wrote a post for SpouseBuzz about my experience.

"I didn’t think my voice would be powerful enough, or my story strong enough to convince our national leaders to make some much-needed change.

I went into this day thinking I would just sit back and let others speak -– boy was I wrong."

Jenn - The woman just opposite of you in the white dress and peach jacket is Hysha Robinson Nesmith. I worked with her over in Financial Aid at the University of Rochester and she is also Mrs. New York. Her platform for the Mrs. America pageant was infertility! Did you have a chance to meet her? What a small world! :)
