Assume…the word makes an ass out of you and me. As my English teacher in high school controversially proclaimed in class one day.
My college roommate announced the birth of her child tonight. He was born too soon. I am hoping and praying for the best…she’s going through the NICU roller coaster.
Why is it assumed today that the vast majority of people will get pregnant easily and give birth in a normal, yet amusing way? It’s not true. My friend almost died.
One in eight people has trouble getting pregnant. One in eight babies is born too soon.
Neither of these statistics is acceptable.
I’m so angry. And this is the latest slap in the face in a long line of tragedies this month.
