So my cousin officially announced her pregnancy with twins after trying fertility treatments. This is the 2nd cousin who has gotten pregnant with minimal medical assistance.
Part of me is soooo happy for her and her husband because I know this is something they really want. And I'm excited to welcome new cousins into the family early next year.
And part of me is saying "when will it be my turn?" We've been trying to start this family for the last 7 years.
At the end of the day, I roll up my sleeves and look at my list of things to do while waiting so I feel like I'm doing something to help further the process. So I'm scheduling my Child CPR Class and getting my friends together to help with my adoption profile video.
How do you react when family members announce their new additions while you're still going through the process of starting or expanding your own family?
