Smack. That was the sound of my foot hitting my mouth. I knew better. Or so I thought. After all that we had been through regarding infertility, I had been so hyper-aware of assumption comments.
I’m lucky, but I’m not: I absolutely love my young son, and truly appreciate the ability to have conceived him. However, I never imagined having only one child, and neither did my husband. My gut tells me that having two children is what is needed to complete our family. I know that those who are experiencing primary infertility would do anything to have just one child. Please try to put yourself in my shoes to see if you might just feel the same if you were in my situation.
We do our best to avoid offending those who attempt to build families. We are familiar with what NOT to say, but what about the following stereotypes?
