Today, at 6:21AM my sister who is only 5 months older than me gave birth to her first child. Just after she found out she was pregnant, I found out I would never be able to give birth to my own child. For the last 9 months I thought I had succeeded at making myself believe I never wanted children. After gazing at my sister's beautiful little angel for the first time, I truly realized how much of a blessing it is to create another human being, and it hurts. MMT

5 months older? We're one of you adopted? Half-sisters and your dad knocked up two women five months apart? We're you an extreme premature birth? I don't get it. It takes 9 months to make a baby, even if they had sex right there in the delivery room logically you can't be any less than 9 months younger

#1 There is no need to be rude, there are a number of reasons, two of which you even listed. 1. OP could be adopted. 2. OP's sister could be her step sister. 3. OP and OP's sister could have different mothers, life happens. OP, I myself cannot have children, something that is wrong with my body does not allow me to carry them through the second trimester so I know the pain you are feeling. Something that has helped me though is looking into alternative options. My sister has volunteered as a surrogate for me, I've looked into both foster care and adoption. We live in a day and age where there are so many ways for you to have a child, do not give up hope.

I would really love for you to watch this: http://youtu.be/0XctUKlrgo8 I'm not sure if you're a believer, but as a believer, I can tell you God opens and closes your womb. My step mother was diagnosed with endometriosis and was told she would never have children. She had faith she could and continued to operate in that faith, I now have 3 sisters and 2 younger brothers. Stay encouraged!
