national adoption awareness month

infertility and adoption is a big thing.  any mom who is infertile hears, "just quit thinking about it" or "adopt a child...that will cure it".  for those of you that may say those things....DON'T!!  first, it's stupid.  second, infertility is very difficult and personal...and honestly, none of your business.  third, unexplained infertility is just that...unexplained!

here's a stat to throw back...of couples who were infertile prior to adoption, statistics show that 8% become pregnant at a later point...those aren't good numbers.  yes, i am aware that i became pregnant after infertility...but, my friends, that was God's plan.  i absolutely can notimagine my life without b and jk...and they are part of God's big plan.

so, here's the deal...infertility and adoption.  personal.  pray for peeps.  support peeps. love peeps. listen to peeps. don't judge peeps. 

for more info on coping with infertility issues (and people), see fertility community.com.

i got some fab bloggy love today from my friend megan...it's one of those things that i just shout hooray for! 

i was bestowed this award because "she is bringing awareness to adoption, especially this month. She has a gorgeous family. And although we still don't know what our future holds, at least I'm learning something from her."

so, wanna know what the struggles with infertility are?  go and visit megan...and give her some love and encouragement...she's darling!!!!

Hey there! I saw you on roll call at SITS and thought I'd stop by. Your blogalicious blog is absolutely amazing! I love the design.

Thankfully, I haven't struggled with infertility, but I have many friends who have and they have been through so much. I battle depression and people tell me to cheer up and get more exercise (hasn't worked for me in 15 years). So I know how hurtful it can be when people don't understand but give advice anyway. I am a real big proponent on NOT saying those insensitive things just because you don't know what to say! I prefer to say "I don't know how you are feeling, and I don't know what to say, but I love you and am here for you".
Anyway, *down from the soap box* I am with ya! You have a beautiful family :) and I really enjoyed your blog and will return :)

This was an awesome post as usual. I am going to check Megan out and pass this post on. And BTW, I am so stealing your "rock my face off" line. Because YOU SO ROCK MY FACE OFF!

Lovely makeover! (However, I was never hear to see it before. *giggles*) I'd like to have a custom one ... just not sure what I would want and I get bored fairly easy ... that could get expensive.

Congrats on your award! Well deserved. I'm really not a stalker ... just trying to catch up on all the adoption info. *wink*
