It isn’t uncommon for a happy couple to want to expand their family. Some people even choose to do so by introducing a furry four-legged friend into the home. But for Tina Traster and Rick Tannenbaum, there was only ever one option.
On the surface, Tina and her husband, Rick, appeared to have it all. For one thing, both had established successful careers – Rick as an attorney and Tina as a seasoned journalist. Interestingly, Tina’s work has previously appeared on NPR, and she’s also had her own column in the New York Post.
Nevertheless, this Upper West Side couple longed for something more: a baby. Initially, though, it seemed that this was never going to happen, as the couple struggled to conceive naturally. But, reluctant to give up on their dream of having a biological child, Tina and Rick turned to non-invasive fertility treatment.
