United States of America;
Struggling with infertility. It's heartbreaking and awful, and nothing has worked - since we may never have kids, my husband and I try to have a full and busy lives.
I love the kids in my family and enjoy having relationships with them, but hate that some of their parents get mad when I'm not available to babysit. One actually said, "wow, I thought you'd be grateful for the opportunity" after I told her we were busy...like all we should be doing is sitting around the house wallowing in our misery and waiting for someone to dump their children on our doorstep.
Another said, "You know if you had kids you'd have to cancel plans all the time. I guess it's a good thing you don't have any." Really?!? Go fall in a hole. It took everything in me to not reply, "You know, if you actually parented you wouldn't have CPS investigating you every few months. I guess you shouldn't have had any."
