If you have turned to adoption as the result of infertility, it can be comforting and validating to hear other's stories.
A hopeful adoptive father had this to say about infertility on his blog:
"The grieving brought on by infertility is different than other grief I have experienced because you do not grieve what was lost, but what never was. At some point you start grieving for what never will be...
So may we, together, accept that there is nothing wrong with us and see we are simply sharing in the human experience – which is simultaneously beautiful and painful, disheartening and hopeful."
