Yes, there's a reason

One of the stupid things people say to us infertiles is that God must have a reason not to make us mothers.

What reasons? Oh, they don't say, but when you are a depressive, self-deprecating infertile your imagination can supply them easily: I'll be a terrible mother, my kids would be criminals, they would be disabled, I will not be able to give them a decent life, I will probably come down with a terrible disease and they'll become orphans... you get the picture.

Well, yesterday in Houston a kindergarten boy was showing off a gun to his friends when it fired. He and two other kindergartners were injured, and the little boy will probably be expelled for a year, since that is the usual punishment.

How about the parents that left a gun where a 6 year old boy could find it? Will there be any consequences for them?

I don't know. I do know that God made them parents, but not me.

Frankly, I prefer to think that God is not really looking.

  1. I think this stuff all the time. I often joke that I be I could become pregnant more easily if I started abusing drugs or something. It makes no sense at all.
