An amazing book and a book tour you do not want to miss

Please share with any Catholic (and non Catholic also) friends, doctors, priests, any person close to the subject of IF that we now have an amazing resource with a Catholic and moral perspective.  
I have been reading  The Infertility Companion for Catholics  for the last 2 days since I received my first Amazon copies  and every single page has resonated with my soul.   
The book is already sold out in Amazon, but please place  your orders there so you can have your copies as soon there are more and  to show the printing company and the world that this is a very much needed resource.

This is the description of the book: 
One in every six United States couples experiences infertility but Catholic couples face additional confusion, worry, and frustration as they explore the medical options available to them. Filling a major void in Catholic resources, The Infertility Companion for Catholics is the first book to address not only the medical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of infertility, but also the particular needs of Catholic couples who desire to understand and follow Church teaching on the use of assisted reproductive technology.
Authors Angelique Ruhi-López and Carmen Santamaría offer the support and wisdom gained in their own struggles with infertility. They describe the options that Catholic couples can pursue in seeking to conceive, many of which are not ordinarily presented by the medical community. In an encouraging and non-judgmental tone, they address both husbands and wives and help them recognize the emotional impact of infertility on their relationship.
The Infertility Companion for Catholics presents a variety of spiritual resources including prayers, devotions, and the wisdom of the saints and provides suggestions for further reading of reference materials, Catholic documents, and Catholic blogs about infertility.
I was blessed to "meet the authors" a few days ago and I cannot express how impressed I am by their commitment to helping women have the resources needed to find answers and help them  with moral resources in all aspects of this cross     They are now both adoptive and biological mothers  that have themselves struggled with if.

In order to promote the book bloggers  will be hosting  interviews, book reviews and  guest posts related to the topics of infertility, miscarriage, adoption and more. As an extra incentive, they will each be giving away a copy of The Infertility Companion for Catholics so please check them out. Here is a list of their stops
