Hello, my name is Rachel. I am infertile.
If this was a meeting, this is where you all would say, “Hello, Rachel.”
“Infertile” is such a harsh word. In biblical times, the word was “barren.” I’m not sure I really lik either of them, though. What it means is I feel like less than a woman. How can God design women to have babies, and marriage to produce babies, and two faithful followers can’t fulfill His designs? It definitely sucks.
I hope to use this blog to sort of sort through my feelings. I have no idea if anyone will ever read it, but this is the first step – writing it all down.
