    Thanks for sharing these ideas. I think you're right that, after Mother's day, this time of year is the hardest for people who had wanted a family of their own. Thanks also for not forgetting what it's like to experience infertility, even though you now have your own family. Those of us for whom it hasn't worked out for appreciate your compassion.

    Christmas can be a hard time for many people, but it does not have to be a hard time for those without children. I have no living children, having miscarried twice. But Christmas is about remembering the birth and life of Jesus Christ which means Christmas is for everyone. What makes Christmas special is learning to take the focus off of oneself and looking out for one another.
