“I became a mom in my 30s. It didn’t happen as quickly or as easily as I thought. I just remember the feeling of how do you tell someone to stop that dream? It’s so easy to judge from the outside of it—to say ‘why don’t they just adopt or why don’t you just use a surrogate?’ People can just be so flippant! All of these little statements that, if you don’t have to experience, are so easy to judge. Plus, the reality that all of those losses that can happen during the process are a little mourning in themselves. It’s really unfair that in the years that are so precious, when many of us are trying to figure out who we are, having children is the last thing we think about. And yet those are our most fertile times.”

-Kathryn Hahn, actress and mom to Leonard and Mae, to The Fold, November, 2018.
