I am absolutely shocked. I can't believe this. The add was paid for.. and not BY Adina. I know she had her reservations about the whole thing but her loving, caring friends decided to intervene and give a tiny fraction of the love Adina gives daily, back to her. They paid, with their money, not Adina's to have an ad put up. It was a way her friends could give back to her and help give her the one thing that her heart hurts for. As for the wording? It was a way to try to look on the depression subject of infertility as lightheartedly as possible. Did you see a sexual inuendo? I certainly did not. Not for a fraction of a second. Makes me wonder what's going on in your minds? Good thing no one judges anyone's worthiness of having a child, huh? I mean, honestly, this makes me sick. Infertility comes with so many feelings of unworthiness and insecurty. Thank you everyone who made someone I am PROUD to call my friend feel like crap! NO, really.
You know what? I don't agree with every ad I see here. But its not like MDC is selling diapers or trying to fund anything. They are helping run this wonderful site that YOU participate in I'm sure multiple times a day. They just have to make sure its not against their values. And since when is it against their values that someone has an IVF. And if MDC is against friends helping their friends who are going through a heart wrenching time then I'm out of here! But they're not. They're supportive and so am I. Quite frankly I'm disgusted by the fact people are being so critical of someone who did no crime but accept help from friends.
As for Adina. For those of you who don't know her I'll give you a quick bit of info about her. She's amazing. She is a moderator (not just a participant) of a parenting board even though she yas not (YET) had a child. She is hurting inside to have a baby and every day she comes to a bulletin board where people are having babies all around and offering the support. She can't go off and lurk as a moderator. She is always an active participant. She doesn't tell people to go away because she's not in the mood to hear about their positive pregnancy test. She's right there and supportive and virtually holds a thousand or more hands through a really difficult time we call infertility. Who's holding her hand? Who's boosting her morale? Who's helping her? She never even asked for help. I am just seething over the fact that when some people decided to step up to the plate and give a little back that she gets shot down because of what YOU perceive as a rude ad. I thought it was amazing from the start. I am just......... grrrrrr......... very disturbed by this, to say the least.
I better stop now.. I'm just getting more mad. Thank God I believe in Karma. You'll learn.
