Happy Monday! (I know…those two words don’t go well together). I am happy today though, because I am actually getting the opportunity to post! The past couple of weeks have been super busy. I was doing a lot of work and maintenance on the website. It may not look very different to you, but there was a lot going on in the background. I will spare you the boring details and jump right into todays post. It’s all about why I chose to stop fertility treatments.
This is something I have wanted to share for awhile, but I wanted to wait until after I had announced our adoption plans. You may think that the adoption stuff came out of left field, but the truth is that it is something that I have always wanted to do.
I want to make it clear that I did not choose adoption, due to infertility, because I think that is the wrong reason to adopt. It is a very different route to parenthood. I am not saying that you should not adopt if you have been struggling with infertility. I am just saying that infertility should not be your reason for doing it. That is what bothers me the most about the, “Why don’t you just adopt?” question that infertile couples get asked. You should never, just adopt. But, let me get off of that soap box and back to what today’s post is really about.
I want to share a little bit about my decision to stop fertility treatments.
