: First, thank you all for your kind words AND for tuning in.

: Overall, I am personally quite pleased with how this segment turned out. GMA taped for over three hours and I think the producer did a fantastic job of editing the material she had. To Martha's question - although there were other things I had said during taping that didn't make it in (and I wish they had)... the producer had 3.5 minutes to create a cohesive story and I think she did a great job of doing so.

: With regards to Nancy's comments ... yes I found these very disappointing. A producer's job is to supply the correspondent with background information. In this case - the producer had actually included many plugs for insurance coverage and made no reference to the "some women are meant to be infertile" comment that Nancy made.

: You are strongly encouraged to write to ABC's GMA and share your views and opinions on this story.

: In spite of the (sad) ending to the segment, I have no regrets and would do it again in a heartbeat. The producer was very forthright and honest with me and I feel that I was in no way misled.

: In the meantime - this issue is one in which Nancy has expressed additional interest in and may end up delving in deeper ... there is far too much of a story here to do it justice in a few minutes. Should this happen I'm sure the details will be posted.

: Thank you again for all of your support.
: Debi


I missed it. I should have stayed home...even my boss said I should have! But I did get to see the picture of you with your babies! Wonderful. And she's an idiot and I'm about to send GMA an e-mail. If we were meant to be infertile, then men were meant to be impotent (Viagra).
