The Lasting Trauma of Infertility
I liked this part of the article:
I agree - nobody (except the ones who went through the same infertility hell that left us childless) can truly understand the depth of our pain. But the second part - about co-worker who lights up whenever people talk about their children - this is so very wrong. I have never ever met another childless women who would light up when people talk about their children.
For me - listening to stories about children who are not part of my life is either hurtful or annoying or combination of both.
I am actually only interested in hearing the stories of children who belong to my life and who consider that I am part of their lives.
Sometimes I get a what's up message from my bloggie friend from Paris. She is very busy (and so am I) so we don't write to each other often. But sometimes she sends me few lines what her little girl told her about me and our time together. My heart just melts... I love that little girl so much!
And then there are my nieces and nephews and few other children... I am very interested in hearing about them.
