Childfree? Motherhood? You’re a Woman Either Way
Whether to take on the challenge of motherhood or go childfree is a big decision. Scratch that. It’s the biggest decision of your life.
When I was younger my mom always told me, “When you grow up, you’ll get married and have a beautiful little girl just like I had.” Despite my mom repeating those words like a broken record for decades, I never felt passionate about having kids. I didn’t sweat it too much though.
Deciding whether or not to have a baby was something I would deal with later.
Honestly? I thought my feelings toward having kids would change as I got older or when found a good man to share my life with.
Well, when I got married to the man of my dreams in my late 30s, decision-time was upon me, well, us. Every time we would visit with either of our parents, the talk would eventually turn to having a baby.
I was well aware that my biological clock was tick, tick, ticking away.
