Infertility – more like unfairtility

As I meet more and more women through my mommy groups, I also meet more and more  who suffer from infertility.  Below is a link to my dear dear old roommate Deja’s open and honest blog about her own battles with infertility.  Reading it just makes my heart ache for her.

It’s not just Deja.  I was actually having this very discussion about how unfair it is with Aaron last night during dinner.  There are couples out there spending tens of thousands of dollars trying to have a baby. And there are also women out there fighting to keep that little baby in their tummies for at least 34 weeks.  In the meantime crack whores are getting pregnant left and right.  Babies are being dumped in dumpsters, and 13 year olds are getting pregnant.

Why do we call it infertility?  It should be called unfairtility.


One thought on “Infertility – more like unfairtility

  1. If you only knew how many nights I’ve laid in bed asking myself the same question. There was a crack baby in the same room as Lane in the NICU, and I was so sad for that baby but so angry at the parents. I did everything I could for my baby to be born healthy, and yet there we were; it felt SO unfair.

    I have to trust that God has a plan for everything, even if I don’t understand it at the time. That doesn’t mean I haven’t struggled a LOT though, especially lately. It’s really easy to go into self-pity mode and feel like giving up.
