Women who are anxious to conceive -- and who have yet to conceive -- know about waiting. Waiting is the hallmark of infertility. You wait in doctor's offices. You wait to ovulate. You wait for prescriptions to be filled. You wait for the pregnancy test indicator to light up. You wait for a miracle, and then you wait again. Inconceivable is the remarkable true-life story of Shannon Woodward -- a woman who stopped waiting her life away. She wrote this book for other women who've been waiting -- for women who can't afford the next round of medical treatments, who can't bear to let their feeble hopes rise again only to have them crash to the ground in disappointment. Woodward revisits eighteen years of personal frustration, pain, and anger. She speaks of healing, but not the kind that other women in her condition have prayed for. The healing she has experienced is the healing of walking another path -- the path of peace that she is uniquely equipped to share.
