Question of the Day #1,150

"So you're going to be a daddy?" I asked E.

"Yes." E's eyes lit up. "It's pretty amazing too, because I'm a testicular cancer survivor."

"Wow. That is pretty amazing," I said. "Like one in a million."

"Exactly," he pointed at me. "And you know what? It happened naturally. You see, I had frozen sperm before my cancer treatment. But it was very expensive for them to store it. So I decided to have a talk with God. I said, 'God, I trust you. If I'm meant to be a father, you will make me a father.' Then I tossed the frozen sperm in the toilet and flushed."

"You did what?" I asked.

He smiled wide.

"And now, my baby girl is coming."

What huge life-changer have you left up to fate?



  1. I dunno, I kind of feel like the entirety of my life is up to fate. Sure, I make decisions about my life, but I don't ever feel that I am completely responsible for the outcomes.

  2. I'm approaching my 14th cancer-free year in January.
    Fate . . .

  3. That's a cool story Suzanne. I'm glad things worked out for E.

  4. That's amazing! Congrats, E!

    Decisions left up to fate? Meeting my husband for sure. Other than that I am pretty much a control freak, half-believing I control my life but half-knowing it's all up to fate.

  5. What a story!
    I guess I haven't tampered with much around here--trying regularly to give it up to God.

  6. Aww, that's the spirit! I guess I approach all my life that way. I don't know what's in store for me, but I trust that no matter what comes my way, it's right. I'm still single and approaching the age where I wonder if I'll have a family or not, but you can't force it. I'm happy to hear E's good news.
