I am not exactly sure how to write this. But I’m living at that point where friends and family don’t want to tell my wife and I that they are pregnant. Somehow afraid that our feelings will be hurt after years of dealing with infertility.
More than any birth announcement, I am hurt more by silence. Robbed of that shared joy that comes from living in community with others.
I want to encourage those around my family to share their news. Allow us to come alongside them. Please don’t be silent. Let us share in your excitement.
When times are good, be happy;
but when times are bad, consider this:
God has made the one
as well as the other. – Ecclesiastes 7:14a (NIV)
