I am the proud mom to two wonderful young adults. I wish I could say children, but they are not (even if in my mind’s eye I still see them that way). Our daughter turned twenty-three years old a few months ago, and our son will be twenty-one in the fall. Sigh…
I was fortunate that I never had any issues conceiving. I got pregnant with our daughter “out of the blue” (we were not actively trying to get pregnant). With our son, I was ready for another child (as was my husband) and BOOM! We got pregnant just like that.
My heart goes out to those who are struggling to become parents. I have a relative who had a difficult time conceiving. By the grace of God who was able to get pregnant, and now she has the most adorable little girl. It just breaks my heart knowing how much they struggled to conceive her.
Did you know that about 10% of women (6.1 million) in the United States ages 15-44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant? This is according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Over six million! That is a lot of women.
I wish I was younger (and healthier). I would have gladly donated my eggs (we only wanted two children). My husband said he would have donated his sperm too.
I am not sure if I could be a surrogate. I think I would be worried the whole time that I would do something wrong.
My sister in law was a surrogate to twin girls for her cousin. The pregnancy and birth was easy from start to finish.
You often hear about celebrities and their fertility issues. People like Kim Kardashian, Amy Schumer and Gabrielle Union. They are fortunate to have unlimited funds and specialists to help them to have a child. But what about regular people like me and you? Who is there to help regular people with conception issues?

I think it’s wonderful that there are organizations available to people who are wanting to start a family, but don’t know where to begin. I wish organizations such as Smitten & Hitch were more publicized so that people can find out about them and all they have to offer.
I like that they cover a variety of topics, not just co-parenting and trying to have a baby. First you need to find that special someone to start a family wish, which is why I like how they include dating in their area of expertise. Thank goodness I’ve been married 24 years. I wouldn’t want to have to hop back into the “dating pool.”
