Firstly before I go ahead and offend anyone it's not my intention. I'm going to tell you about how adoption is not for us. Adopting is a wonderful thing though so please don't get me wrong.
I've just had a message from a friend who I've not seen in years. At 33 she's a few years younger than me. She has a little boy. Believe it or not she was 5 months pregnant before she realised (and she is a bright and lovely girl). Anyway I digress; she's just the latest in a long line of people who have "helpfully" suggested adoption. Why don't they get it? Why don't they get that I'm desperate to see two lines on a test, to feel my baby kick, to know that we made it; our love, our DNA. Besides, who would let us adopt? I'm only a part time agency worker for elderly people and my bf is a T4 paraplegic. We don't have money. Probably not high on the list of things they look for in adopting! All week long I've been posting on social media about infertility to raise awareness for infertility awareness week. Why don't people read? Why do they only care about issues that directly affect them? I'm sorry. I know she and every other person means well. I just have to stick to the scripted responses I've developed on this journey.
