Why Is The Quot Stork Quot So STUPID

Why does the stork keep dropping off all the healthy pregnancies at the doors of girls who have a moment of "oops" with their boyfriends? Why do I (in a healthy, loving marriage) get all the pg's that don't make it? Why do my friends, who have been ttc with their husbands for years, STILL not have a pregnancy at all? Why is life so unfair? I mean, I know it's fact, but how do you continue to keep pressing on when life is so unjust?

How is that unfair? Just because it's not planned many single young women love and appreciate their children. Life isn't unfair and God makes these things happen for a reason . Whether they make the right choice in keeping or not is true the true test. Everyone will have their moment and chance !

It is hard to see women who DON'T want their pg's continue to get pg. THAT'S who I'm talking about... not women who are single but are still happy to be pg. That's a whole different situation.

It certainly bites...at my church we have recently started having tons of pregnant teens come in...and most of them have began having their babys since Jan. Thats hard for me...to be praying to get preg and seeing girls just walking in left and right with their infants and their lil belly bumps!! I agree with Emma, everything happens for a baby!! God is just waiting to send us our perfect little bundles! Baby Dust!

I'm very sorry for your loss snickelfritz, I just read it on the other thread. I really thought you had it this time. Sending you lots of ~HUGS~

Snickelfritz, I am so sorry for your loss. Even though I have never been blessed with a pregnancy I can only imagine how heartbreaking it is to lose one. I also think that life is unfair. I try my best to have faith and believe that everything happens for a reason but sometimes it is hard to hold your head so high. Again, I'm truly sorry.

Oh, snickelfritz- i didnt realize you had loss one..I am soo sorry. I couldnt imagin what you must be going through. On the post I made earlier, it was supposed to be everything happens for a reason ..not for a baby...i REALLY have babies on the brain today!

LN, I a__sumed you meant reason instead of baby. And I've had three losses, the latest of which just happened and prompted this post.

LN030905- thats was cute and funny. I got what you meant too!

i'm with snickle on this one. if everything is supposed to happen for a reason, than what possible reason could there be for some teenage girl who can't take care of her baby that is going to neglect and damage her child to be able to have a baby? what better reason is there for some one to be able to have a baby than some one who can take care of a baby and who has a home and all the love in the world for a child. that does not make any sense to me.

ohh ouch tish-I, too, feel that teens are too young for certain reasons-but I have to say that that not all end up being neglected and damaged. I know that it doesn't seem fair-but I know a few who have had this happen and turned out to be good parents and good kids, it is a harsh stereotype for young single moms. I even get looked at cause I look young, have 21 month old and am 32 weeks-get many looks for that wedding band!!

 

Emma2 - April 13

Tish, I see your point but there is a reason regardless of the immature kids having kids. There is still a reason for everyone being here regardless how old your parent were , married, not, divorced and so on. You make a good point but God has plans for each human being.

This is an interesting thread. This is only my opinion so no one take offense please... I do believe in God and that things happen for a reason. I have a 17 month old son who was a complete unplanned surprise. I was on the pill and we thought we were being carefull. Well needless to say we love our son and would never never change anything. What I get upset about is how these you 13, 14, 15, etc. girls get pregnant by mistake. I had a friend who was with the boy she planned on marrying get pregnant. She aborted it because she was not ready to quite drinking or smoking. I was soooo mad at her. Of course I kept that to myself. She now has 2 beautiful healthy little girls with that same man. Why was the first one worth so little????? I may not have wanted to quite partying but I did for the sake of our child, wanted or not. In some ways I think God miss judges people. People who are ttcing and have a healthy happy home should be blessed before the girls who havent even graduated highschool yet. Someday if they want children then give them some but give them a chance to live life first. Free will is to have s_x whenever you want but I do believe that it is up to God to decide which egg and when it should become a baby. I don't know!!!!!!!!!!!

JenE , I respect your opinion and it is sad because the 1st child was suppose to have his chance in this world and didn't because of selfish reasons but those are the trials God puts us through.

 

JenE - April 13

When I said for the girls to live life before children I meant graduate from highschool first and enjoy being a teenager with out the stresses of how to take care of a child.

 

JenE - April 13

Why would he give her a second chance when she was still drinking and smoking when she got pregnant the second time. Like I said I do believe things happen for a reason but it makes me upset with the way God does things

 

Lin - April 13

I don't believe in any of that, and I don't believe that everything happens for a reason. The world is dictated by chaos a lot more than most of us would like to admit. It is pure chance, and that's it, and to be honest, it's pretty rude to tell someone who's just had a miscarriage that everything happens for a reason.
