    The difference in our case is that medical problems have prevented it so far. I've had more than a few people in the past from church say "You know you shouldn't put off having children." Little do they know how much we'd love to have them! But who can afford private adoption ($10k+) or infertility treatments if you have to pay for it (~$5k per cycle)? Sometimes people are just stupid.

    Of course, what's worse is when people say "It will happen when it's time." Yeah, I used to think that, but after 7 years I now know it will happen when the doctors finally make it happen. Again, people are often well-intentioned but still stupid in particular areas.

    Did I mention infertility really, really sucks? About 1 in 7 american women suffer from some sort of infertility now. This is only slightly higher than 20 years ago. The difference is that now people are more willing to talk about it and it gets on the news.
