I don't know who the author author was that wrote this but the person sure hit home with me on this one. This was posted on a different TTC forum board I use to belong to.

<span style="color:#0000ff"><span style="color:#000000">No, God never meant for me not to have children. That's not my destiny; that's just a fork in the road I'm on. Ive been placed on the road less traveled, and, more compassion, deeper courage, and greater inner strength on this journey to resolution, and I haven't let him down.

Frankly, if the truth be known, I think God has singled me out for a special treatment.
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 Ive ever known.

While I would never have chose infertility, I can not deny that a fertile woman could never know the joy that awaits me. Yes, one way or another, I will have a baby of my own. And the next time someone wants to offer me unsolicited advice I'll say Don't tell me what God meant when he handed me infertility. I already know.

You're welcome Marla.

The first time I read that it touched me so deeply and profoundly. It was if the person who wrote this knew my inner most feelings and thoughts. Those statements mentioned in it I can't even begin to tell you how many times I'd heard them. Specially the one about maybe this is what God had intended for your life. And that came from a niece of mine who at the time she said this was pregnate and wanting me to be all supportive of her ... I was crushed here I was happy for her yet at the same time so hurt because my arms where still empty.

So each time I heard of another family member being pregnate I would shut myself off from them in my own way to ease my own hurt and pain. I have no idea if they ever understood my reasoning or feelings and at times I don't think that they honestly tried to they saw me as being childish. When in all actuallity I was just hurting so bad from being unable to have a child of my own.
