More About the Author

Kristine Ireland Waits is a wife, mother of three and author living in Oklahoma. She is known for her first book, Every Drunken Cheerleader Why Not Me?. A work of nonfiction written to reach women struggling with infertility, a battle she vigorously fought. It is a beautifully relatable book that has the reader grabbing for a tissue in order to wipe the tears shed in both sorrow and laughter. Kristine's unique voice is so comfortable that many readers consider her a friend. Her second "book" Sweet Sam Shares was written as a gift to her son for whom the book is titled. Be on the lookout for her next book, a work of fiction that we readers can't wait to get our hands on.

Finally, someone gets it right! This isn't "how I finally got pregnant, follow my footsteps and you will too" rather, "I know how bad it sucks to be in your shoes, here is my advise as to how to deal and keep your relationships in good standing". She is a christian and makes no secret of that in this book however, she is real. She lets you know it's ok to be a christian and not feel guilty for being confused about how "infertility" is part of Gods plan. She also hates the word INFERTILITY! I too wonder why the Doctor labels us in such a way. I have PCOS and my chart has infertility written all over it. I HATE that word! I am not infertile just challenged! I read this book via my Kindle Fire and have already loaned it to a close friend that means well but I know she feels at a loss for words and doesn't really know how to approach me sometimes. I know this book will be read over again by myself. It's like an old friend. I am considering buying the hard copy so I can make notes and highlight. She recommends several other books and gives lots of good advise. God bless Kristine Waits for writing this book and sharing her journey.

After reading all the great reviews, I thought I was going to love this book. But, it is badly written and with lots of religious overtones. I was expecting a timeline or story of the author's experiences, but instead it is a jumbled mess of odd advice with no real order or timeline to it. I did not come away feeling inspired or comforted, because there is no real talk of the actual treatment or process. Most of the book is just moaning about attending baby showers, which does suck but I don't feel that is the heart of infertility issues. Don't waste your money on this one, unless chatter about unrelated bible study groups moves you.

I ordered this book because the title was cute and funny. I never expected it to be so religious though! I'm not opposed to that, it just seemed a little odd given the title.

It's filled with great advice for friends, family, and yourself. It's nothing I hadn't already reaqd from a few other self help infertility books, but the author had a great story and I really enjoyed reading it.

I'm definitely recommending this book to friends (both infertile and not).

This book is not a prescription on how to get pregnant, nor is it a step-by-step tutorial on the author's fertility-challenged journey. She is our friend who is voicing all of the emotions most of us keep inside and are too afraid to say to our spouse/family/friends. This book has God in it which I love. It covers the same questions I've had in my heart. The same questions I've asked God. Why me? Why not me? Is it okay to go after fertility treatments and let "man" (doctors) take over/change/mess up God's perfect timing? Lord can you give me an extra shot of patience while I'm waiting for your perfect timing? (FYI: He doesn't give us patience, He gives us the opportunity to be patient.) This book is written by a fertility-challenged friend whom you've never met, probably will never meet, the type of friend you most likely do not currently have and yet she knows us better in this personal, intimate and SUCKY situation than anyone ever will. She's comforting, she's direct, she's true to herself and true to us in expressing the absolute raw emotions that go along with being fertility challenged. Although her struggle is not the same as mine, her fertility path is not one I've ventured down and her prayers have been answered x2, she is still my friend who gets me. This book will not tell you how to get pregnant. This book will hopefully help you understand and learn from the inner struggle that goes along with your physical struggle to conceive. The inner struggle from being fertility-challenged is difficult enough on its own and when you couple that with feeling like you're the only one out there who feels like you do, it's like an emotional bomb that's about to explode.Read more ›

I was going through some difficult times and found this wonderful book!!! One issue that plagued me during my trials and tribulations was jealousy. To read about the author's experience and words of wisdom made me realize I wasn't alone. It was one of the most comforting things in the world and helped me concur that ugly feeling of envy. If you or anyone you know if having infertility issues, I highly, highly recommend this book.

While this is the first and only book I've read on infertility, it is exactly what I needed. I can relate to the author's feelings in many ways. No, it isn't necessarily "new" info. But it is ever so helpful and hopeful to read Kristine Ireland Waits' story and feel a little less alone and I like the balance between the "Christian flair" and the "wordly tone". Thanks, Kristine for sharing your experience!

Anyone that has found themselves struggling with infertility, has a friend, family member, or spouse that is struggling with the news must read this book. I purchased and read this book on my Kindle and found that it described emotions and situations I had struggled with in a way I couldnt explain. I had to purchase a copy for my husband, parents, and sister to read as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
