I posted on this over at AdoptiveDads.org Here’s an excerpt:
Years ago my wife and I went through a season dealing with infertility. It was one of the most painful seasons of our life and marriage. I was deeply humbled by how unprepared I was to care for my wife in this season. That is why I am so thankful for the story of Hannah in the Bible (1 Samuel 1).
Hannah taught me that it is natural for a woman to desire to have children. Woman all around the world can relate to her. My wife painfully longed to be a mother. Initially I didn’t know what to do with her emotional response to not being pregnant. To me it seemed so disproportionate to how I felt.
