TTCMA is a wonderfully diverse board. We have women of all ages and stages of life, from around the world, coming together with one common goal: to build our families, using medical assistance to make our dreams come true.

Let's get to know each other! Fill out this survey and post it in a response to this thread. This was originally posted in 2006, and I thought it was a good time to post it again so we can get to know everyone again.
