I have heard firstmoms say that they don't like to hear that it was "God's plan" that their babies were placed for adoption. It really hurts them and I can see why.
But you know what else hurts? When someone says that women who are "barren" (what an antiquated term!) are that way "for a reason" that "God must have wanted it that way".
I don't believe God wants any woman who loves children to be childless. I don't think it's "His plan" for them to be childless because of adoption OR infertility...
Why do any of us have to say things like the above when you KNOW good and well that you are hurting someone when you say it?

I wholeheartedly agree with you. I think it's a wicked thing to imply it's Gods will that a woman cant have children or to imply that women deserve to be infertile because of choices they made when they were young.
