Infertility through the eyes of a 4 year old

I was on the phone with my friend Christa when her 4 yr old daughter asked her if anyone that wanted a baby could have one. Christa told T that, “No, some people want babies very badly and can’t have them and some people have to go to doctors and get a lot of help to be able to have a baby.” Christa said, “You know, Miss Kristin needed help to have Gabe. She had to go to a doctor and he figured out what the problem was and she was able to have Gabe.” T then asked Christa, “Don’t they pray to God and ask him for help having a baby?” Christa told T, “Yes, a lot of them do. And, God gives some people the intelligence to learn about the body and to figure out how to help people have babies. That’s how God helps them.” T stopped and thought for a few minutes and looked at her mom and said, “So, God is a doctor?”

I love that Christa explained it to her and I love T’s response.

    LOL! That is great. God, a doctor and a weatherman? Now, that is a lot of responsibility.
