I just got off the phone with the Family Life Coordinator of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the largest diocese in the United States, which serves almost 5 million Catholics.
That’s like, an insane number.
And do you know how many Catholic infertility support groups she knows of?
None. Not a single one.
There are support groups for widows and separated/divorcées, but none for couples suffering from infertility.
I’m still in shock, but realizing how desperate this need is. Much bigger than I had any idea about.
So for anyone who thinks this is “just another problem” you can have that’s not any worse than any other problem, clearly it isn’t if we can’t even talk about it.
I’m still in shock.
