This is My IVF Journey.
My name is Elena Lai Etcheverry and I am the Founder and Executive Director of Charity Wings Inc. I am on a journey trying to get pregnant and I am sharing this personal experience to hopefully help others know they are not alone, and to bring awareness to infertility and the one in eight couples that have trouble conceiving or sustaining a pregnancy.
I am the Founder of Charity Wings AKA Scrapbook Royalty, Non-Profit Organization dedicated to raising money and awareness through unique artsy crafting and scrapbooking events. Since it's inception in April of 2006, the charity has raised over $400,000. I have been an avid crafter all my life, and have also taught scrapbooking, stamping, mixed media and crafting classes in the US and Taiwan. I have 2 wonderful creative clubs that I have been running since 2003! "I love crafting for charity, cute piggies, bacon, glitter, pretty shiny things, and sugar-free rock star!"
I started a blog to help me with this big decision and I wanted to try put my thoughts with images. It is a little window into the part of my mind, heart, life that is not always able to be a happy people. www.ellifeworthliving.blogspot.com I decided to publish it for people that might be going through the same thing I am right now. I know it has helped me to know I am not alone. If you decide to read it, please start at the bottom for it to make sense.
