Every 13th of the month sweeps me back with an emotional gust of wind, right to that cross I once embraced, and didn't always understand. The Glider. I was so very hopeful in my first two years of NaPro treatment. I was convinced I would be healed of my infertility and be one of those success stories told far and wide, particularly when I scheduled my first surgery, the laparoscopy, ovarian wedge resection via laparotomy, and the selective ...http://thiscrossiembrace.blogspot.com/2016/02/the-glider-blanket-lamb-and-baby.html

However, even among friends and relatives, people turn on him. Ched Myers, writing in his book "Who Will Roll Away the Stone?" notes that things are not looking too good for this little rebel movement.
