"I Would Die For That"


Sometimes I (inexplicably) flog myself by going to the celebrity baby blog website. I am at once drawn to it and repulsed by it and on weaker days I give in. It's like looking into the windows of the most fabulous candy store because you don't have any money to spend. Today, however, I found something I could partake of:

This is a video to Kellie Coffey's song "I Would Die For That" which is about her struggle to become a mother. I may be discovering this a bit late as I think this has become a very popular YouTube video (which is wonderful!), but I had to mention what a nice feeling it gave me to see someone in the public eye make such an open, honest, and real declaration about her struggle to become a mother. I confess I watched the video with tears in my eyes. These lyrics especially left me choked up:

Sometimes it's hard to conceive,
With all that I've got,And all I've achieved,
What I want most Before my time is gone,
Is to hear the words"I love you, Mom."

She said it better than I ever could.

Fortunately there are a few celebrities out there who are doing their part to spread the word that there's more to starting a family than just getting drunk and knocked up...

Actually, more and more celebrities are coming out about their own infertility. See my site:
