I was doing some research, and I have discovered that not only am I 1 in 5000 (or 1 in 4500, depending on the source....) I am also 1 in 8 (or 1 in 6, again source depending...) 1 in 8 couples struggle with some form of infertility! Another astounding fact? Around 65% of those couples OVERCOME their troubles by seeking fertility treatments. How's that for positivity? :)
By dealing with infertility, they mean that we have put it behind us. We have decided that adoption is the #1, absolute, best decision for us. And we haven't even tried IVF, or started any sort of assessments, so how would we know right now?? And how do you PUT INFERTILITY BEHIND YOU?? I was born without a uterus. That's not something you just let go, like a butterfly you caught the day before, or an animal you rescue but can't keep. It stays with you, it's forever a part of who you are. I just don't understand.
But, last night I had a dream that I was single (WEIRD, since I have never had plans of leaving C!!!!!) and had adopted a beautiful, healthy 6-month old boy, and he is still here (in my head & thoughts), clear as day, holding my heart. So there's always that... To me, he is a sign to at least take the big steps and do the paperwork and maybe the home study. Or even just pick up the phone again and call! <3 Thanks for reading!
