This series is for anyone who has voluntarily or involuntarily found themselves childless and is looking for signs out there that life gets better!

It is time to rewrite that happy ending. Join me as we hear honest, open, warm stories from inspirational men and women from all over the world who have found their happy endings and are thriving. Think of us as all part of an awesome club that you never wanted to join in the first place. But you have found your self here anyway and this podcast is the secret knock, so come on in. You are most welcome!

Authenticity without melodrama

Shannon tackles infertility with raw honesty — and without being unbearabaly sad. As someone who may still decide to have children, I found this podcast enlightening. I learned how to talk to others about childlessness with empathy and consideration. No one should feel they have to hide their experiences from others and I'm glad this podcast is helping to make childlessness less taboo and giving those suffering a place to turn.

Finally someone talking about this!

My husband and I do not have kids. Hard decision to come to and something that is not just a decision you make and forget about. You are constantly reminded. Listening to Shannon and her interviews from all different perspectives has been really helpful and a huge reminder to be grateful for what I have and to take advantage of our child-free life! Thank you Shannon

you're not alone!

it doesn't matter where you on on your journey in family-making -- whether you have children or not, had kids easily or not, are child-free by choice or not... there is something here for everyone to learn, to relate to, and to grow from. Shannon keeps her interviews so real and heartfelt, allowing for vulnerability, humour, real emotion, and love to really come through. it's not easy to tackle such a tough topic with honesty and yet keep the content so positive and hopeful, but Shannon and her fantastic guests do just that. if you are someone who knows the struggle and grief of infertility, pregnancy loss, and letting go of dreams (or love someone who does), the experience can be incredibly isolating, but this podcast reminds us that our stories are shared and we are not alone.
