*Who have never stepped foot in a doctor’s office to discuss why they are having trouble conceiving
It’s not easy to explain why the question, “do you have children?,” can cut like a knife. With that in mind, I wrote a guest column, Infertility: Amid the Silent Sorority. It first ran on a site called CurrentMom.
Perhaps this perspective can provide a starting point …

beautifully written, deeply touching. You do a great job at unraveling all the stages of the process to discover we are facing serious trouble trying to do what is so natural to others.

I could have written that myself – if could write as beautifully as you do. I want to give that article to all my friends with kids, to try to make them understand.

I replied with the post itself, but it bears repeating: You have described perfectly how infertility has felt to me. Thank you for putting it into words so eloquently.

I actually already read that. A Shelby posted it on her blog. Thanks for continuing to be a voice.

Great article, Pamela. I don’t see how anyone who hasn’t been through this couldn’t read that and become a least a little bit more compassionate. I hope you will continue to write like this — it is clearly a big help to a lot of women. Even those who don’t know they need some help…!
