I don't often use that word, I save it for things that are really lame... ya, it's fitting.
I just found out ANOTHER friend of mine is struggling with infertility! That makes 8 couples that we know of. All of these couples are fairly young, and have been struggling for longer than a year, most of them have been struggling for two years or longer. It just makes me so sad, probably because I know a little of their pain, kind of.
For all of you friends that are struggling, both those we know of and those we don't, we're praying for you daily. For those of you that we know of, we pray for you by name. I wish there were more we could do...
I think one of the main reasons it's so hard is because there's nothing that a couple can do to fix their situation. (yes there's fertility treatment, but that's not guaranteed to work) It's one of those things that you truly have to rely fully on the Savior, which is really painful sometimes. Submitting our will to His isn't easy... well at least it wasn't for me.
I just feel so bad for those couples that are struggling. My heart goes out to you!
