I neglected to mention in my last post that I believe there is a solution to accepting death and infertility, Christ. Actually, the priest did mention it in his homily that many situations in life do not have a apparent, earthly solution. But Christ is the answer. Christ is the solution. I think the Frontline episode might have been served with mentioning that faith can play a powerful role in the dying person and their families accepting the inevitable. I know egocentrism is in vogue these days but a little perspective goes a long way. Life is bigger than me, way, way bigger. The life I want to live is perhaps not the life God wants me to live.
I'm seeing infertility like any other disability, it sucks but it's there. Stephen Hawking who has ALS said this recently, "My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit, as well as physically." Amen.
