Lessons Infertility Teaches

The Lesson of Perseverance

Often when we are going through a trial, such as infertility, we don’t always recognize the lessons we are learning along the way.

One lesson I learned walking through my trail was perseverance. When we are called upon to persevere, we usually want to resist. We want things to be easy. We tend to want gratification, now!


In this day and age, at least in the U.S., most everything is obtained almost instantly. We need information, we go to the internet and we have it. We want to watch a specific movie we pull up Netflix or go rent it. If we need something, most of us can hop in the car and go buy it.

Our instant society has us programmed to be impatient. A walk through infertility is an exercise in working hard and not giving up. It teaches us a life skill that will help us all the rest of our lives. Kids don’t usually come with easy fixes.

A Diamond in the Rough,
