    Someday. Definitely not yet.

    But hopefully in the next few years. I mostly know how to take care of a child due to helping take care of my niece for almost three years.

    I can't wait to be a father.

    I'm 24, almost 25 and I just feel ready. Could be that I'm maturing, but the thought of having a child has never seemed so appealing... All I need is a girl 😐 any takers? Lol

    I can't wait to be a daddy.

    I think it has a lot to do with me not having a father myself. When I was a kid my father left me and my mom. I grew up watching other kids bond and interact with their fathers, never knowing what that was like and deep down longing for that feeling. When I was 10, my mother...

    I Would Love To Have Children, But I Am Unable

    I am great with kids, silly enough to be fun and stern enough to provide discipline. I have been a babysitter since I was a teenager, and I just love the whimsy and imagination kids still possess. I would love to have my own children, but, alas, I cannot. There is scarring on my...

    They All Are Having Kids, But Not Me

    I know, I know, you're too young. I'm not saying I want a kid right now, this instant. I just want to know that it is a possibility for me. I dated a girl for two years and I knew that would never get me kids, but we were happy. In January, it ended and I moved back in with my...

    Actually, I Don't Know..........

    I seem to seesaw back & forth. I don't want to be a "bad" parent. Sometimes I think I'd be better off just being with someone who wouldn't care if we didn't have kids. Plus I'm getting kinda set in my ways. lol. Then I'll think of that dream dying & cry myself...
