Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

Telling My Story April 27, 2011

Tonight is the Opening Night of Expressing Motherhood. This is a show with 13 women and one man talking, singing, and performing on the theme of motherhood. This is the show where I will get up on stage and tell an audience, consisting mostly of mothers, my story.

I won’t give away too much now, suffice to say I will touch on the subjects of desire and choices, as well as some thoughts on the fertility industry and baby showers.

I’m a little nervous – about performing and about my story – but the producers and cast of the show have been truly supportive, and I’m hoping the audience will be too.

During this, National Infertility Awareness Week, I’m hoping to shed a little light on a side of motherhood that doesn’t get much love.

Wish me luck, and I’ll promise to report in.

    Wishing you good luck, Lisa. I know you will be a shine. So I am told, being nervous is a good thing. Not being nervous is not so good. Have fun!

    Best wishes, Lisa! I wish I could be there; I’m only a couple hours away, though, and hope there will be more chances…go you!!

    Wishing you the best of luck. But you’re so talented, you won’t need it. Break a leg!

    Break a leg! or “Chookas, darling!” I hope it goes brilliantly and the response from the audience is wild. I wish I could come.

    Thanks so much, everyone. As you can see I’m WAY behind with reading my comments! So far, the show is going great and I’ve had nothing but positive responses. Three more nights to go and I’m hoping to also have video to post next week.

    Thanks for your support and encouragement. -x-
