I'm tired of being told how lucky I am.
Nobody is saying it to be rude- they're just clueless. It makes us all cringe.
My daughter and I are not lucky to have been separated at birth.
Sometimes I want to reply that her parents are lucky to be raising my child, but there is nothing lucky about not being able to have children.
The fact that she has great parents is due in part to good planning by me and for many other birthmoms is helped by the fact that there are more of them than us.
Yes, I feel lucky sometimes, but I really hate it when people sum up our relationship in "You're so lucky."
Yes, I see my daughter. It doesn't make me lucky. It's what we feel is best for the child we love.
I'm not lucky. A crisis pregnancy during which I decided I wasn't the best person to parent my child doesn't really seem like luck to me.
Yes, I'm grateful that I have a good relationship with my daughter and her family. Luck has nothing to do with it. We make a conscious effort to treat each other with kindness and respect.
Please, stop telling me I'm lucky. Change it to "That's really nice." Then, maybe I can agree with you.
