How it starts

I’m happy for them, I really am. Happy Father’s Day and all that. But this is why people think it’s appropriate to say, “You’ll get pregnant now that you’re adopting.”


  1. Ugggghhhhh....that makes me cringe. Happy for them, but let's just perpetuate the myth a little further, shall we?

  2. I hate that comment! Hate it, hate it, hate it. The scary part is, I'm afraid to lecture them on it because if it does happen I don't want to hear the "I told you so" crap!

  3. What they fail to mention in that article is that the couple probably had "unexplained infertility". If that woman had half of my FsH or if her husband had my husband's low count - that article never would have been written.

    And that's how ladies like us get "pregnanted".

    Hi, I'm Julie and I found your blog through "We Dream of Baby". I hope you don't mind if I add you to my bloglines.
