Infertility



I have been thinking a lot lately about Infertility.
I cannot imagine dealing with something as painful as that.
Avery's mom Andrea is a very very strong person.
I admire the way she has handled it all.
Her complete faith in the lord,
and closeness to the spirit inspires me.
The day I am as close to the spirit as her and Dustin,
is the day I will feel like I am on the right path in life.
Thank you Andrea for being such an inspiration to me.
I love you
I admire you
and
I look up to you
I have heard many stories of things people say to others with infertility that is probably very offensive. (I am guilty of doing some of them.)
I complained about pregnancy all the time when I was pregnant. (why the heck would I do that???)
I was not sensitive about Andrea's infertility, yet I expected people to be sensitive about me placing. a little hypocritical right??
Anyway, I admire those of you dealing with infertility.
That is the purpose of this post.

You know what? I think all of us do that in some form or another. It's always enlightening to put yourself in someone else's shoes and try to imagine what life is like for them.

Andee, I know you have no idea who I am at all but let me introduce myself. I am Elizabeth and my husband and I have been struggling with infertility the past 4 years. We are now working with LDSFS and waiting to be chosen by a wonderful birth mom like yourself. I stumbled upon your story twice this week while reading some of the other blogs I frequent and I wanted to let you know how touched I am by your courage and strength. What an amazing example you are and I feel the spirit so very strong when i read your story. I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing such a sacred experience with everyone. You are an amazing young woman! This particular post really touched me. The struggle with infertility is so very hard but it seriously does provide so many different blessings. I know my husband and I, as much as we ache to become parents, we also treasure the growth we have had durring this trial. What sweet sweet things for you to say to Andrea and what a heart felt way to express your sympathy for the trials she has gone through in this life. I have really enjoyed reading your blog so I'm sure you'll see more of me :)
