Thanks to a friend's FB post, I came across this article that poignantly discusses the struggles of going through infertility as a Catholic. One of the IF blogosphere's major stars, This Cross I Embrace, was interviewed for this article. The author explores the very tangled web of IF, made difficult sometimes by some of the unique Catholic experiences such as judgement by others of your family size.
The only addendum I would like to mention is that I do not see my baby as some sort of "reward." The Bible may allude to that, other moms may say something similar, but that is not my opinion. I see my baby as a huge gift, one that I am so unworthy of receiving. Just wanted to clarify that, in case any posts (despite my best efforts) say otherwise. :)
