Pelargos is the Greek Word for the stork. In Greece and in so many different cultures around the world, the stork can be seen flying over rooftops, carrying a little cloth bundle, before landing on the doorstep of a happy couple, who then unwrap their precious smiling little baby. This is a common story to tell children around the world who ask ‘where do babies come from?’
There is no particular answer to the questions ‘why the stork?’ and ‘why the stork story, has almost been globalized?’. It seems that somehow the nice bird has been associated with babies, in so many different mythologies and folklore stories around the world. Also, the fact that stork is a migrate bird that always returns to the same nest after its 9 month travel to the south, has played its role to symbolize family values, fidelity and fertility around the world. Of course we all find out soon, that the story behind babies origin is different, than the one we were told, when we were deemed to be too young to be explained the truth.
Unfortunately though, for a big percentage of grown ups around the world, even the true story behind the conception and birth gets so difficult, stressful and emotionally unbalanced, that goes far from being a fairy tale with a happy ending.
For many subfertile couples in the world, a constant battle with their own selves is required to maintain their consistency, happiness, determination, dedication and peace of mind, in order to finally achieve their family-goal. It is not easy at all. Both financially and psychologically.
