Rachel Nielson, host of the popular podcast 3 in 30 Takeaways for Moms, joins Tony on the Virtual Couch today to talk about her experience in how her two amazing children came to be a part of her family. Rachel went through both in vitro fertilization and open adoption at the same time in an effort to fulfill a lifetime calling she felt to become a mother. Rachel’s story of her experience with both methods of attempting to bring a child into her and her husbands lives is touching, beautiful and nothing short of a miracle and will help anyone who is currently contemplating either IVF or adoption, or those who have people in their lives who have not been able to bring a child into their lives through traditional pregnancy and birth. Rachel also shares the powerful story of Katie, the birth mother she connected with who ultimately gave Rachel and her husband a son. You can find Rachel’s podcasts on iTunes/Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to your podcasts or directly on her website http://3in30podcast.com/. Rachel also has a very active Instagram following, and you can find her at @3in30podcast
