Kym McNabney: Relationship with children - While going through infertility, it can be difficult being in the midst of others that are blessed with children, as you struggle to have your own. Each of us are different in our experience and reactions. We may even react differently to specific people in our lives, or on any given day, depending on where you are at in the process Kym McNabney / Be honest with yourself, and in touch with your emotions. It is better to limit your time with certain people if you are not able to handle it well. I found volunteering to watch the infants at church while their parents attended service, to help fill the longing to have a baby of my own. Taking my sister’s kids to the park, or zoo, helped to fill the hole in my heart. There will be times you will need to be around family and friends that have children. Ask God to help you be present with a loving and open heart, so you can share in their joy.
