Now the actress most sensible identified for her position on Law and Order shares what she hasn’t but: the whole tale of ways in-vitro fertilization allowed her to have a toddler, how speaking approximately infertility helped her focus on it, and the way her hope for a child and the tricky course that ended in one taught her approximately herself and made her into the girl she used to be intended to be.
