Why do you seem so callous when you ask an infertile woman,
“What about Adoption?”
If you want to remain friends, do NOT ask your friend this question….
Theresa Hartman eloquently responds to so many people who think once we lose our dream as a biological Mother, we should IMMEDIATELY begin the adoption process…
“You must mourn and bury the old dreams before you can embrace and commit to the new. As a woman who has suffered nine miscarriages, I learned this the hard way. Don’t hurry over the grief. Don’t tell yourself to “get over it”. Allow your heart, mind, body, and spirit to remain in that sacred space of loss for however long it takes. Not to “get over it,” but to incorporate that dark tile into the mosaic of your life.“
