So Alexis Stewart (who is the one and only child of Martha Stewart, for Johnny, and others who didn't know) is on Oprah today, talking about speding 28Ks a month on fertility treatments because, and I quote, she wants "a child of her own". ARRGHH! Am I the only one who finds this so aggravating? Sure, she's filthy rich, she can spend her money on anything she wants, but 28K? A MONTH? At age 42?
Why is adoption still so second-class? I admit it, we were weird. We pursued both IVF AND Adoption at the same time. I know most people try one, and then have to come to terms with their infertility and move on to adoption. I can understand that. But she says herself she doens't have a plan B! Seriously? With that kind of money, she could easily adopt a perfectly healthy new-born. If trans-racial adoption isn't her thing, I can respect that. But tell me what birth-mother presented with her file wouldn't pick her? Sure, she's not married. She may or may not be gay and some people might not pick her for that. But I just don't get it. 28K a month....
I just don't get it.
(And by the way, can we now start saying she wants "a biological child"? Because I would like someone to explain to my kids how they are not my own?)
