Robert Edwards, one of the British doctors that pioneered IVF has passed away.  Elizabeth Comeau, the first IVF baby born in the U.S., wrote about his passing, and what he meant to her: 

What can I possibly say to all of the couples he helped? What could I possibly say to those who happen to be children of assisted reproductive technologies?

The truth is, despite being a writer, I have no words. He created life. And he created hope for those who thought hope was lost.

What would you like to say to the doctors that paved the way for ART?

I wouldn't even know how to thank them for their tenacity in developing IVF.  The joy I have known from having children is something I owe to them.
