I’m sure you all can tell I love dark humor as a coping skill. I really must commend this couple for their creativity and humor in raising visibility and in finding a fun way to accept life for the wrench-throwing jester that it is. And they found their own best solution! Adoption, assisted reproduction, skillful “giving up” (e.g. finding alternative ways to create your life’s meaning and/or contribute to others), raising kids in a different way (e.g. volunteering, stepparenting, being a major support in the life of a child who needs one), finding the silver lining in not having children… all excellent responses to the major curveball of infertility.
