My best friend here in Dallas, also a co-worker, pulled me aside yesterday {I know it was a Saturday but working in sports is a whole new animal} and told me some shocking news.

She has been having some issues trying to get pregnant and went to a specialist about a week ago. Yesterday her doctor called with the results...she can't have children.

I had no idea how to react or what to say, I was speechless. I just grabbed her and gave her a big hug, during that moment she broke down in tears.

We talked for about 30 min and then I told her she needed to go home and be with her husband. This is a huge thing and being around our 40 male co-workers at this moment was not a good idea. Plus, she needed to just be sad and be with her best friend who is going through it with her, only in the male way.

After she left I sat and thought about my husband and myself, especially with my health issues, this could be our reality in a few years too. Yes, there are other options, but as women we are programed with the motherly, carry your own, instinct. It makes me catch my breath every time I think about it.

No matter what they decide to do, I will be there for her every step of the way, even if I don't know exactly what to say.
