I Want Kids

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 354 People

    My heart, my soul, my body aches I want to have

    children so much. It makes my emotions run high when I see people with their kids. I have been raised with the belief that I must be happily married before I have children. And I'm not getting married anytime soon.

    Some Kids to Call Me Mummy...

    This is not a new tale, the need grows every year as does the fear that I'll never find a Daddy for them in time. Stupid reproductive disease and lack of a virile father for the babes. It's killing me (literally) inside.

    I Am All But Certain That I Do

    I've gone back and forth over this, originally saying no because of the nature of responsibility but I think I've come full circle. I think I have truly come full circle because I do want one or two. As much as the responsibility factor is scary, I think I do have the right...

    Kids Are Fun!

    Three would be nice. Two boys and a girl or two girls and a boy, or just three girls.  I have one girl so two more to go, if God wills.

    I Love Kids

    I want to have anywhere from 2 to 4 kids.  I absolutely adore kids and watching them grow.  I used to babysit a lot.  I still do at times, but I want my own.

    Just two. A boy and a girl would be nice.

    Jamie and Tia. But not now, I'm way too selfish. I enjoy time to myself. I come home and cook for me, myself and I. I might watch some RHOA, call a friend, or stretch out on my bed and read a good book. No noise, no questions just peace and quiet. I like.

    In the Future

    I don't necessarily want my own kids, that is something I am still quite open to as I don't mind the thought of adopting, in fact that has always appealed to me- to give a better quality of life to someone who is already here
