Sue Johnston Detours: Unexplained Infertility, Combination IVF/ZIFT

I was the fourth and final child of my parents and grew up in western Pennsylvania. Because I loved children so much, I studied elementary education at Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA. Upon graduation from college, I accepted my first teaching position in Prince William County Schools and moved to the Washington DC area. I very much looked forward to raising a family of my own one day. I met my husband, Robert Johnston, a US Naval Officer, about seven months before he received orders to the Pentagon. I was 28 and Bob was 34 when we married. We were ready to start a family immediately. We subsequently struggled for nearly a decade to have our one and only child. Our struggles with infertility affected me profoundly. I have always wanted to write a book to offer support and increase awareness about infertility so that others experiencing the same challenges will not feel so alone.

Robert Johnston Detours: A Man's Perspective on IVF/ZIFT

I grew up in a Navy family, moving sometimes every year.  I went to 3 high schools and when I went to college, it was my twelfth school.  At the University of Michigan I was in the Naval ROTC Program and was commissioned as a naval officer when I graduated. I served on 6 ships and commanded two of them: USS HORNE (CG-30) and USS RENTZ (FFG-46). My early career included lots of time at sea and thus I got married a little later in life than most.  Sue and I were married when I was stationed at the Pentagon. I always assumed that having children was a natural part of getting married and I looked forward to starting that part of my life.  I had never really heard of folks having fertility problems until we were in the midst of it.  My frequent sea tours and our overseas tour in the Philippines all put a strain on our quest to have a child.
