On having babies close together...

Someone told my husband today that they felt sorry for our kids because they're going to be so close together. I try to be careful to not rant about the comments we've been getting since announcing this pregnancy, because it doesn't do anyone any good, but maybe it's time for me to say something.

Shortly after we were married, I was told that we would need a fertility specialist in order to get pregnant at all. Ever. I have a medical condition that is the number one cause of infertility in women. It's also known to cause secondary infertility.

Our children are a blessing.

We want them.

We care for them.

We love them.

So please, don't feel sorry for them and don't feel sorry for us. Sometimes the most challenging things in our lives are the biggest blessings.

I'm excited for your second little boy to come & think that they both are lucky to have you as parents. I think it will be quite the contrary from what that obnoxious person said--your boys will be buddies & will always have a playmate. They will love being close together. They ARE blessings & I'm glad you feel that way :)

Babies definitely are blessings! When you announced this pregnancy I was amazed at what miracles the Lord was providing you with, since I knew a little about your infertility concerns and have some myself. Your sons are going to be two very loved little boys!

The only thing that is going to suck is sending them out on missions at the same time. Other than that life will be awesome!!

Its nobodys business when you want to have children. All babies are blessings and if people have negative things to say about your choices on your children, screw them!
