Life Is too Short
This short poem titled “Life Is Too Short” is my inspiration for
this post. Sometimes, I think back to my many years of fertility treatments, vitamins, hormones, tests, procedures, hoping, praying and crying. Occasionally I let myself go there. I think it is important to remember what I have gone through sometimes so that I can truly appreciate where I am now. Some might regret the years of pain and waiting. I am of the opinion that these years have made me a stronger, better mom today. Regret the past? I don’t have time for that in my life. I wake up each morning and look into our girl’s eyes and know that this was the Universe’s plan for me. Life is too short to worry about what might have been. Don’t waste your time on regret. I trust that there is a bigger plan for me than I can even imagine. I would even like to believe that I chose this path before I was born. I needed to learn what it was like to struggle and wait for children.
No matter the obstacles life throws at you with infertility, if your heart is open, and you are willing to take that chance, adoption is a beautiful way to bring that child into your life.
Here is the poem, I hope you find it inspiring.
