Samantha Drossner isn't your average sister-in-law. She's a 36-year-old superwoman camouflaged in the body of a stay-at-home mom.
Samantha is the reason that my beautiful 6-month-old daughter is celebrating her first Hanukkah this year.
Some background: My wife, Abby, and I struggled for years to have a baby. We tried infertility treatment - the transfers, retrievals, implantation, achieving the proper hormonal levels - each time suffering through the wait-and-see period that tore at our patience. Abby, 33, got pregnant twice, but miscarried twice. Tests were inconclusive. We kept trying: no luck. With each failed attempt, another bit of our dream withered and the tension between us rose.
