Episode 17: Russian adoption ban

Fresh off the press, Bitter Infertiles Episode 17 is live! You can find it here.

Warning on this episode: There is a pregnancy announcement. I won't say who (you'll have to listen), but if this is a trigger, PLEASE do not torture yourself. Skip ahead to 37 mins 45 secs to listen to the rest. No guilt. Do what you need to do to keep yourself in a good place.

This episode, our special guest Miss Ohkay, helps us tackle the recent ban on Russian adoptions. It's a heart breaking topic, but one that I think everyone needs to be aware of. Miss Ohkay has a wonderful post about this that really outlines the history of this issue as well as gives valuable insight from the perspective of someone who has gone through this experience. A definite must read, regardless of whether you plan on adopting or not.

In addition, I want to take a moment to draw attention to posts from SIF that are tangential to this topic. Find them here and here. Granted, none of this is light reading, but I think what she's bringing up is something that needs to be discussed. I'll write more about it soon.

Finally, our rant this week is on the all important topic Kimye and the recent news. It took me several days to recover from that rant, so go listen so you can laugh at my expense.


  1. I hope this trend with the pregnancy announcements continues! That means you!

  2. ^^^ditto! I can't wait to find out who is pregnant!

  3. Thanks for the update Cristy!

  4. I just wanted to say thank you for all your support over the last few days, and also, I love listening to the podcasts.

  5. Thinking of you Cristy...hope you haven't allowed too much doubt to take over and you still have some hope. Please keep us posted...

  6. Ha! Definitely not light reading at all... I swear I wrote a freaking novel tonight alone. I really do need to work on my conciseness... Thanks for the shout out though friend!

    And, now I totally need to listen to this weeks episode to see who the lucky lady is!
