Erin's Post

My blogger friend Erin wrote a wonderful post today. It was about the incredibly awful comments people give you when they know that you are infertile and are trying to concieve a baby. Some people have told other infertiles that I know that maybe God didn't intend for them to have children. I am so glad no one has told me this because I might fly off the handle. That is so incredibly insensitive!! She said that no one would tell someone with cancer that God must not have intended for them to live!! We just have a special problem and need help getting it fixed. It has been a miraculous journey. I have written about it before...that this journey has brought me closer to God and to my husband so I am glad that I have traveled this path. Sometimes God gives us pain so we can experience ultimate happiness and REALLY REALLY appreciate it!! Erin says it best "“I think God has singled me out for a special reason. I think God meant for me to build a thirst for a child so strong and so deep that when that baby is finally placed in my arms, it will be the longest, coolest, most refreshing drink I’ve ever known.” That is exactly how I feel!! I am going to appreciate my baby soooo soooo much when I hold them in my arms. If this would have come easily I may have taken that for granted...but God had a plan for me!!

I totally agree with you! One of my friends told me that maybe it wasn't "meant to be" for me to have children. I was so upset with her b/c I thought she was my friend. I was so upset that when I finally did get pregnant I wanted to rub it in her face (but I'm better than that)! I do think that Christians who want children are NOT given the desire to have children and then not blessed with them. God will give all of you girls a baby!!

i completely agree. as someone that had baby #1 with relative ease (well compared to this), i can say that you will. sometimes i think that although i cherished my son i didn't really know how to b/c i hadn't struggled to conceive him.
