Smiles from the Trenches of Infertility

I have decided to start a regular feature on this blog called Smiles from the Trenches of Infertility. Infertility is painful, physically, emotionally and mentally. However there are many things that we experience because of infertility that can plain make you laugh at loud. I hope this feature will help you find joy during your journey…
For my first entry, I have to tell as story about my first child. My infertility is of a secondary sort, thus my husband and I, had the added complication of deciding what to tell our child. My husband and I have both been in the medical field, so we explained in terms our daughter could understand about what we went through so she could have a sister. My oldest child had seen video of her younger sister as an embryo and one day she brought home a picture for her sister. It was a black circle with several different colored lines inside the circle. She explained to me that it was a picture of her baby sister as an embryo. She told me God would take the lines and put them together to make a baby. Sweet and funny. I wish I could have seen what her other four-year old friends thought as she described the picture to them during school. I wonder if the teacher received any calls from concerned parents.
Just a funny to hopefully brighten your day!
