    Wish I Could Have More

    I only have 1 son. Wish I could have more but financial and health problems hinder me from having another. I am grateful that I have my son. He is a bright 8 year old boy and also a handful. He keeps me busy.

    Just One Child

    I have just one son and people constantly ask when we are going to have another one.  Why do I have to have more?  I'm happy with one child and there are no plans for others.  LOL, I'm tempted to tell people sometimes that we got it right the first time. :-)
