Did you know it's National Infertility Awareness Week?
Probably not, because nobody talks about infertility. People talk about cancer and skin conditions and GI issues, but infertility is often a dirty little secret.
It's understandable that a woman (or man) who can't have children is devastated and doesn't want to discuss infertility.
HOWEVER, the only way to get this message across is to say it loud and clear (and I'm even going to bold it so you get the point):
THINK TWICE (and then THINK AGAIN for good measure) before you ask ANYONE "When are you guys going to have kids already?" Think twice before asking someone with one child if she's going to have another before her firstborn and a hypothetical new baby would be "too far apart in age." DON'T go on and on to the childless couple about how easy they have it being able to sleep and go out. Finally, never, never, never take your children for granted.
