My newest sister-in-law (DRK, married to C's oldest brother, DSK) recently lost a baby. She has a daughter from a previous relationship, but this would have been DSK's first kid. They were devastated, and the whole family was very sad, when we all found out that DRK had miscarried. They are moving on, and going to try again in a few months.

C's sister's (R) brother-in law (Ron) and his girlfriend (Jenny) have a 1 year old. They hadn't wanted any children at all, aren't married (not that this really matters) and quite frankly are too selfish to be what I (or anyone else in the family) would consider truly devoted parents. Jenny is also a pathological liar (i.e. said her OB told her not to stop smoking while pg, b/c it would hurt the baby...also pretended to have gestational diabetes, which I did have, so this really pissed me off; she also just lies about all kinds of crap regarding their son). Anyway, they have just found out that Jenny is pregnant again, by accident. OK, if you don't want kids, period, and you've already had one "accidental" baby but don't want more, there are PERMANENT OPTIONS. There is no reason to bring another "unwanted" child into a house with 2 selfish parents, and a mother who is a chronic liar, when people who deserve to have kids like DRK and Bada/Dulce and many others want babies so badly but have lost their babies.

This is why I have a really hard time believing that God/Deity of your choice actually cares about things like this. Don't get me wrong, I still put requests/prayers out into the universe, but the unfairness of it all is a bit depressing and frustrating sometimes.
