30 Day Infertility Blog Challenge: Day 22

22.Were you the product of infertility? Was anyone you know the product of infertility? How do you know? Or do you just suspect based on circumstances like age differences between siblings, time between marriage and conception, etc.

I was not...my family is uber-fertile.  

However, I do have a very close friend, Bird, who is adopted as a result of IF.  A few years ago, thanks to the good ol' interwebs, she found her birth mom, and shortly thereafter, her birth father.  Now, here's where it gets fun.  

Her wife was telling her uncle about finding the mother, and where she was from.  The thing they thought was cool was that she was from the same town as wifey's family in Long Island.  He asked her name...turns out he knew her birth parents.  They had been good friends in high school, and he's fairly certain he was present during Bird's conception.  They all used to hang out at BD's house, and the two of them would regularly sneak off!  It was a giant reunion.  When they got married the next year, her BD attended, as did her BM.  She met him for the first time at her wedding.  Giant high school reunion, LOL.  

Talk about a small world, right???
