    This is a fantastic book that our children love. The story is wonderful and the art transports them to a different world. The subtle storyline about egg donors was a great way to introduce children to alternate pathways to fertility.

    We just received and read your book and want to say how beautiful it is and how beautiful a message it sends. First off, the words, graphics and layout are beautiful and so wonderfully written. It took a tremendous amount of courage for you to speak openly about this and we are very proud of you for doing so.

    We both know that your message will reach countless others and bring comfort and hope to them. You are a good, generous and caring person!

    Thank you Gina for sharing your story. It takes so much courage to show the parts of us that challenge us the most but those are the moments that make us closer together. Its easy to show a picture perfect exterior but the vulnerable side is what makes us human and real. Thank you for your beautiful story!

    Gina nurtured this book in the same manner that she nurtured her dream of motherhood.
    Written from a position of selfless love, it is an honor to share her story with my boys whose birth story is too built from a foundation of resiliency.

    Please consider this beautiful story to illustrate; Never give up on your dreams!

    A Lemon Tree for Wilshire is a beautifully written and illustrated book that had my 8 year old reading! Yes reading right to the end! We were engaged by the story and related to growing a garden at a more basic level but Gina made what is normally a chore with Jared really fun. What a wonderful way to share such a personal experience on a level kids understand and has parents in tears, happy tears. I can’t wait for the next one Gina.

    – Fans for life Wendy and Jared.

    A Lemon Tree for Wilshire is beautifully written & illustrated. 🍋 We have read it many times to the boys (ages 7 & 9) and I always have tears in my eyes by the end. Thank you to you & Cory for so bravely sharing your personal journey with infertility & pregnancy loss. Your words are perfectly chosen & resonate so deeply. Congratulations on your inspiring & heartfelt book, Gina!
