So, Everyone Else Is Having A Baby…But Me!

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Over the Christmas holidays I was overwhelmed with news of pregnancies. I learned that two of my husband’s cousins were expecting and one of them was to have twins. Then, I learned two of my cousins were expecting; both of them due in May. As hard as all that news was, I swallowed my tears, put on my congratulatory smile and continued to enjoy my time with my family while my heart was being torn into pieces. After all, did I not find peace with infertility?

Now that I have two beautiful young ladies to care for in my home, I thought these longings would go away. Especially, since both of these ladies are in their teen years and its enough to make any sterile mom want to remain sterile. However, the old familiar pain returned when I learned last week that my youngest sister was carrying my first niece. That is a total of seven babies expected this year in my family!

    It sounds like you have a handful with the girls you have. Be happy for your sister and be the best Aunt you can be. My Mom had cancer after my sister was born and had to have a hysterectomy. My Dad said that's okay we'll adopt mom says oh no I couldn't love an adopted child like my own, 10 yrs. later mom changed her mind and I was adopted, 19 months later they adopted my brother, there was never a difference between my siblings we are all family. Hope this helps out somewhat. Judy
