Article: IVF Mom's letter to baby
I love the idea of leaving letters and notes to our kids for later on in life. I was talking about the below article with a friend of mine. She said she wouldn't include details if the pregnancy was not "natural" (by natural, she's referring to sperm and egg being joined in a lab). But she would talk about the pregnancy, relationship with the father, etc.
I don't think I'll share any detail of pregnancy and birth until Charlie is a mature adult (except for the usual.. mommy and daddy loved each other very much type story).
Do you think there's a difference? Would you still share the details with your child if it was done through IVF?
I will tell Avery everything so she knows she can talk to me about it if she needs to.
I do have journals for each of my three children which I write in on big occasions or when something especially adorable or funny happens. I plan to give these journals to them.... at some point. I don't know when yet... but when they are old enough to appreciate it!
I think you go with what works for YOUR family.
