We already know this, but life can be so funny at times, and not always in a good way. When I was younger, I wasn’t one who abstained from sex. I tried my best to be careful to avoid STD’s, and to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. In my mind, it had seemed as if you could get someone pregnant simply by a kiss. It seemed as if so many people I knew had gotten pregnant and were faced with the tough choices of either keeping the baby, adoption, or abortion. In hindsight, it probably was much less prevalent than I believed.
The funny thing is….I guess ironic would work too, is that I now know so many people who are”trying” to get pregnant. When i was younger, i would have never thought that you would have to try…you just have unprotected sex and bam!! But it’s not so. As a matter of fact, it truly is a miracle. There are so many factors that must come into play in order to successfully have a baby.
I’m not at a point where I’m looking to have kids, but I can’t imagine what it would be like to have trouble having them. And on this day of my birth, I respect and appreciate the true miracle it is. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those who have tried and been unsuccessful (thus far), and those of you who have lost young ones. God Bless!
