Do you believe every baby happens for a reason?

I usually hear this in a bad situation. Either from an affair or a one night stand and I've even heard it before when the baby was conceived from a sexual assault.

Depending on who is saying it, sometimes I wonder if it's used to make the woman feel better about her situation.

What do you think?

  • My child gave me the strength to leave her abusive father.

    But I can't say that every baby happens for a reason. What of the women who die in childbirth? Or the children who die from abuse and neglect?

  • I do believe that every baby happens for a reason. Mine was unexpected and she is the best thing that happened to us.

  • In the case of our DD, absolutely. It is a long story but let's just say if I kept going at the speed I was at bythe time I thought we were "ready" to have a family I might have been too old :)

  • Yeah I do.I believe that every baby is here for a reason and that that baby is meant to do something to change the world no one else can do.

  • I think so. In some cases, I think it's like a second chance for the parents. Like the ultimate judge of character, or test of love and life. Before I got pregnant with my son, I had no direction. I was working full time and partying twice as hard. I admittingly became a textbook binge drinker/alcoholic. I basically went out every night, got wasted, stumbled home, went to work the next day and did it all over again the followin evening. I still say that boy saved my life because the moment i found out, I stopped everything cold turkey. Threw my full pack of cigarettes in the dumpster and gave away the beer i had left in the fridge and never looked back.
