FOR WANT OF A CHILD The light at the end of the tunnel is not necessarily a train. Because there is a black cloud over you doesn’t really mean that it will rain. It has been said that “nobody dies from infertility”; But, only us “infertiles” know how wrong that saying can be. A little bit of us dies each month as our cycle comes to an end. We hope to achieve a pregnancy but, we have to round another bend. I can’t comprehend child abuse, what could these people be thinking of? There are so many of us who want children so much; someone to nurture and to love. Fertile people can have lots of babies; but there is one thing we know for sure. Giving birth does not make one a good parent; we know that it takes a lot more. When we finally become parents and have our own child to love; We feel guilty if we complain or yell; we ask for “forgiveness” from above. Being infertile doesn’t make us less human and the truth of the matter is We want control over our own destiny because this is a difficult way to live. Just imagine not having your children; or, if your parents could not conceive you. The world would be a much sadder place and we all believe that is true. We’re not asking for the stars or the moon, we just want some guidance from above. A child, a family, is what we wish for; so that we can share all of our love.
