Meet Sharon and Darren Barren

Nice, thirty-something couple who are always told that it "will happen for them...someday." Sharon has high FSH/low progesterone and was recently diagnosed with a clotting disorder. Darren wishes there was something he could do to make this journey easier on his wife; all the while desperately wanting to become a parent himself.

Can't wait to see the next installment of Sharon and Darren. I still watch the first one when I need a laugh! Maybe, just maybe, I can figure out what's involved and start art directing my own!
