Mean Green March 2014

As March Madness comes to an end, many among us realize that April 15th is almost here. That last-minute scurry for receipts stuck in the back of drawers can produce stress, but also hope for a nice, chunky gift back from Uncle Sam. This issue of Connect focuses on money stuff that can up the ante on your refund and gentle your mean green. Also make sure to check out our upcoming events and spotlights on special members, partners and friends, as well as this month's important read by Path2Parenthood Legal Advisory Council member, Deborah Forman, which offers up info you can use if the very worst happens during your infertility treatment.

Rumor has it spring is coming, but I'm sitting at my desk in a beanie cap and fingerless gloves. Till next month rolls around, we wish you big fat checks in the mail and happy reading.
