So everybody’s kids could be mine

I really liked the latest interview on LWB:

I tried to leave a comment, but I couldn't. I might try later. 
Teresa's thoughts reminded me of my feelings when in the darkest days of my infertility.

She wrote that she had given up on God. I know, I had given up on God for many years.

I loved the article that I found on Pamela's blog this week: 

I really liked this part:
Dolly Parton explained that although she’s been married to her husband Carl Dean for over 50 years, she feels that not having children was part of God’s larger design for her life. “I think it probably was his plan for me not to have kids,” she said, “so everybody’s kids could be mine.” 

If someone told me this when in the darkest years of my infertility I guess I would try to smack him/her. But nowadays most of the days I feel like that.


  1. Dear Klara, I already found that quote by Dolly Parton a while ago, but it didn't resonate with me. It still doesn't (yet). But I am glad it is the way you feel now :-). Have a good Sunday!

  2. That's a really nice quote. It is very similar to a comment a favourite cousin of mine made, when our childless uncle died. He said (something along these lines), "because he didn't have any children, it meant he belonged to all of us." I loved that.
