I always watch channel 13 news. Well, this week they announced that the evening's lead female anchor is pregnant. It's neat because she's 40 and a few months ago she shared with her tv audience the fertility struggles she and her husband had been experiencing. Apparently, a year ago they were going through an adoption that ended up falling through. But when they were anticipating the arrival of this infant, she learned that Iowa does not have any maternity leave laws in place for adoptive parents, only for ones that give birth. So, she did a story about this on the news and ultimately ended up spearheading a movement that got this changed in the legislature this spring. While sharing her story on the news, she also shared that, as a teenager, she had given birth and given the baby up for adoption (who is grown now and with whom she has been reunited) so now she's been on both ends of the adoption spectrum.
