About the Author

Emily Harris Adams considers herself a long-expecting mother. She's seen the frustrating world of infertility: the often humiliating doctor visits, the astonishing price tags for treatments, having to explain why she doesn't have kids, the shock of finding out a friend is going through the same struggle, waking up with her arms cradling a non-existent baby, and needing to suddenly cancel a round of in-vitro for health concerns. Emily is also a poet. Her first poem, Empty Linen, was quoted to a religious audience of more than 13 million people. Emily's award-winning poems Second Coming and Birthright have been read worldwide. She lives in Provo, Utah. -


"It has always been a mystery to me--what, exactly a couple goes through when they desperately want to have children but are not able to do so. I've always felt awkward . . . not knowing what to say, not having any idea what they must be feeling, wanting to be a friend and a support, but worrying that by saying anything at all I would just make things worse. Emily Adams has written a book that I can only compare to something like a jewel or a gift. With beautiful writing, powerful stories, and incredible insights, she has created a resource that will undoubtedly bring comfort, hope, and inspiration to all who read it."--April Perry, co-founder of

"A perfect depiction of what infertility is and feels like. The essays and poems are so relatable, I felt like I might have been reading my own journal. This book is a must-read for anyone who is or knows someone struggling. Where was this book when my arms were empty?"
--Serena Mackerell, Director of Footsteps for Fertility Foundation "Part memoir, part poem, and part prayer, For Those with Empty Arms is a great companion through the longing and waiting that have always filled a spiritual life."
--James Goldberg, author of The Five Books of Jesus "Emily Harris Adams has done a beautiful job of helping the reader to step inside the thoughts and emotions of the couple with fertility challenges. The reader can really feel and understand from the inside perspective. This is a book that would be wonderful, not only for couples experiencing infertility, but also for those on the 'outside' to understand firsthand the many aspects of infertility. I look forward to sharing this book."
--Carol McLellan CST-D, Obstetrics Ombudsman, Upledger International
